Zak Hobbs

Young and emerging talent with a top musical pedigree

Zak picked up the guitar aged 11 and by 14 had played prestigious venues such as the Royal Albert Hall and Royal Festival Hall, thanks to his musical pedigree. Still a young and emerging talent, he is the grandson of Richard and Linda Thompson and is continuing in the family business of making wonderful music. He writes, sings and plays a mean guitar and banjo and says his core influences are English folk from the 60s and 70s, along with American roots music and country music of the 50s, giving his sound a vibrant transatlantic feel.
