About this Event

THE ORANGE CIRCUS BAND

Rooted in Bluegrass and UK Folk Music, they're a wonderful bridge across the Atlantic. ” Whispering Bob Harris, OBE BBC 2 Country

2019 was a busy and exciting year for The Orange Circus Band, where they released two singles with videos (I Miss You and The Saturday Song), championed by The Who's frontman, Roger Daltrey. They, too, have produced their upcoming album, Whistle in the Dawn, to be released this year.

They appeared on Bob Harris' Under The Apple Tree, which was broadcasted, with an accompanying interview, on BBC One News. They played Glastonbury, where they were joined on stage by Lily Allen's dad, Keith Allen, and Noah and the Whale's Matt Owen, and played a host of festivals, including The Long Road festival and Beat Herder. Other notable venues include Cambridge Folk Festival, headlining The Den, as well as Black Deer festival.

****************************************

“’I Miss You’ is a proper country ballad, full of heartbreak and desire, a song and performance that puts pretty much all of what comes out of Nashville these days to shame”

– Jeremy Searle, Americana UK

“So much of country music misses the mark, but ‘I Miss You’ blindsided me…I loved it"

– Adam Walton, BBC Introducing

“Dripping in beautiful country instrumentation and heartbreaking lyrics”

– LYRIC Magazine

"Jessie's voice is reminiscent of Alison Krauss, an ethereal voice that adds even deeper significance to this song, connecting to all of our vulnerabilities"

– UK Country News

JACK'S RAKE

The band was formed by four climbing friends who had travelled up to Langdale to climb on Raven Crag, but got rained off so did a quick scramble up Pavey Ark and spent the rest of the day in the Sticklebarn Tavern where the local folk festival was taking place. At around 11pm the four, in the true spirit of punk rock, and drunkenness, decided that they could do this and Jack’s Rake was born.

Over the next decade the band grew in experience and ability and several line up changes, most of them amicable, took place leading to the Jack’s Rake of today which features Mark Pugh, Catherine Pugh, Hannah Smalley, Rob Whale, Becky Ball, Rhiannon Flynn, Lucy Brookfield, Sean Finn and Sarah Drake, plus occasional bass player Chris McMahon and with regular appearances from various former members.
