John Hackett has announced a return to live activity with a series of live dates for 2022. These will be the first live dates Hackett has undertaken since the release of his solo album The Piper Plays His Tune in November 2020.

"Starting in December at Trading Boundaries I shall be back on stage for some acoustic shows with my brother Steve and his merry band of virtuosi," Hackett reveals. "Then turning the volume up a bit the John Hackett Band join with the Blackheart Orchestra for a gig in Oundle.
