The Jar Family are a fabulous band: toe-tapplingly good, and lots of fun.  This high energy 6 piece, multi-instrumental band from Sunderland each take their turn on lead vocals, share great harmonies and play up a storm; they’re truly dynamic live and will happily get the audience stirred up: singing and foot stomping along with the music. The Jar Family have mesmerised, entertained, thrilled and conscripted punters at more than 400 gigs including approximately 75 festival performances. Their fan base is notoriously loud, thirsty, loyal and very large.

Styled ‘Industrial Folk’ – these musicians from the North East are stunning. As one festival organiser put it: “a superb band… One looks like a 60’s Dylan, whilst another is an archetypical stevedore type with waistcoat, bowler and tattoos and looks like he spits rivets into ship plates for a living. Together they make a great sound”. These very different, charismatic personalities with a wide range of musical styles work together harmoniously, sharing lead vocals and their clever, highly musical, self-penned songs immediately stay in your mind.  They make every gig a party with Echoes of The Beatles, Oasis with originality, edge, grit and truth. You might just recognise the excellent Keith Wilkinson (ex Squeeze, Jools Holland) on bass. If you like local group ‘Thy Last Drop’, these guys should also be up your street!
