Acoustic sensation Jack Savoretti will perform at a woodland concert in Westonbirt Arboretum next summer.

The singer will play songs from his sixth studio album Singing To Strangers, which is due to be released in March.

The album follows on from his last two gold discs Written In Scars and Sleep No More.

Singing To Strangers was recorded in Rome at Ennio Morricone’s studio and the 12-track album features co-wrotes with Bob Dylan and Kylie Minogue.

Jack and his band will perform material from his new album alongside some classics.

The gig is part of the Forest Live concert series organised by the Forestry Commission.

Jack Savoretti and guests will perform at the venue near Tetbury, in Gloucestershire, on June 15.

Tickets, priced £38.50, are available on 03000 680400 or at www.forestryengland.uk/music
