The Cultural Workers

Jack regularly performs alongside fellow singer / songwriter Calum Baird under the stage name, The Cultural Workers, playing acoustic cover favourites, as well as Calum's original material which comes with a Dylan-esque vibe. Regulars at Whistlebinkies will know Calum and Jack, but the duo often travel further afield, including being invited back to play the BBC Bandstand across multiple years.
