Gig review: JAKE BUGG – Cambridge Corn Exchange, 5 March 2020

A cold Thursday night at the start of March with the country gripped in panic bog roll and hand wash buying, cowering with the media wiped up fear of the Coronavirus. A 26-year-old young man from Nottingham steps out onto the stage of the Cambridge Corn Exchange to packed house, it is very clear no-one cares about these matters right now.

Jake’s vocals have even more of his trademarked twang (I heard a guy walking past the venue declare “That sounds a lot like Jake Bugg oh the poster says he’s playing, wish I’d known!”).

The band are pretty together and the front row sing every word and are hanging on every line. He doesn’t exactly jump around the stage, delivering most lines with his eyes close. At the end of the day such stage antics are not suited to his style of singer/song writing genre and everything fits just nicely.

A recommended night out. It appears it from the audience that there is one Bugg they are not frightened of getting (sorry, I could not resist!).
