Jack Lorimer, sometimes billed as Jock Lorimer, was one of the top Scottish music hall artistes of the 1900s. Coming from a musical family, Jack became popular throughout the English speaking world, with major tours in America where he was piped through the streets. Jack Lorimer assumed various characters on stage including a Chinese scotsman dressed in pigtail and kilt in his song Ching a Ling Hooch Aye.
Perhaps simply remembered today as the father of that great comedian Max Wall, Jack Lorimer's recordings have stood the test of time and form a great legacy.
