Jack Hatton is a folksinger. Influences include Bob Dylan, Elston Gunn, Elizabeth Cotton, Blind Boy Grunt, Furry Lewis, Mississippi John Hurt and Florence’s Sad Song from Dougal and The Blue Cat. I like David Lynch, I like William Blake; I follow the Symbolists.
Poet’s Blood is the mirror, and my way of not having to describe myself directly. I hope there is some value in what is made from me, even if all that means is successfully communicating what I see. I am merely trying to describe what I am looking at.
