Jake 'Boy' Hughes' BBC Introducing session in Hereford

This week's live session was recorded at Hereford's Paralympic celebrations - where the city had one huge party to launch the next stage of London 2012.

Herefordshire's flame was created by scouts on top of Scafell Pike - England's highest peak.

The fire was made in the traditional way of rubbing flint together before it was placed in a miner's lamp and transferred to London.

Hereford student Cameron Wood then collected the flame from the capital and brought it back to Hereford on horseback.

Providing the evening's entertainment was BBC Introducing in Hereford & Worcester - where we'd invited some of our rising stars to perform.

Hereford's Jake 'Boy' Hughes normally performs with his band, The Cool Cat Collective - who were named after an student exchange visit to Copenhagen.

He studied in Edinburgh, has been writing and performing since he was 16, and has recently become a dad.
