Raise a Jar to in­dus­trial folk band

Runcorn & Widnes Weekly News - - Theguide -

THE Jar Fam­ily will be ap­pear­ing at The Brind­ley The­atre, Run­corn, on Satur­day, May 26, promis­ing an evening of en­ter­tain­ment on an ‘in­dus­trial’ scale.

The six-piece, based in Hartle­pool, are in­di­vid­ual song­writ­ers and musicians who de­cided that, rather than pur­sue in­di­vid­ual success. they would join forces to create an ‘in­dus­trial folk’ sound.

They have played over 400 gigs, in­clud­ing ap­prox­i­mately 75 fes­ti­vals, and have a fan base that is no­to­ri­ously loud, loyal, large and thirsty.

The Jar Fam­ily are known for be­ing en­ter­tain­ing to watch, and prom­ise a per­for­mance in­fus­ing Bob Dy­lan with Steam Punk, wrestling The Pogues with Bez in a top-hat.

Blues Mat­ters said of them: “Ab­so­lutely bril­liant …with har­monies to die for, won­der­ful orig­i­nal songs… top mul­ti­in­stru­men­tal­ists, char­ac­ter in abun­dance and real talent.”
