Last words: UK concert tour

100 years ago, Captain Robert Falcon Scott and his polar party all died on their return journey from the South Pole. To mark the centenary, Jake has composed "All's Well", a cycle of songs written from the point of view of these five extraordinary men: Edgar Evans, Lawrence Oates, Edward Wilson, Henry Bowers, and Captain Scott himself.

The songs have been fully endorsed by the Scott Polar Research Institute and have been described as "a cultural masterpiece for the Scott centenary". Catch Jake's extraordinary songs (sometimes accompanied by the poetry of Kiran Millwwod Hargrave) at the following venues:
