Hartlepool based The Jar Family are five individual songwriters and musicians, who decided that, rather than strive for success in isolation, they would join forces to pool their talent and create their ‘industrial folk’ sound.
The Jar Family have mesmerised, entertained, thrilled and conscripted punters at more than 400 gigs including approximately 75 festival performances. Their fanbase is notoriously loud, thirsty, loyal and very large.
This six piece are a superb option for festival crowds all over the UK and Europe as they have the knack of being able to win over a crowd quickly and they are extremely entertaining to watch. Imagine, if you can, Steam Punk infused Bob Dylan wrestling The Pogues with Bez in a top-hat.
You should be… They are one of those rare and wonderful acts that quickly galvanises a crowd and brings a real sense of old fashioned showmanship to the stage. They are a truly exceptional live act.
The Jar Family have got so big in the North East they also host their own festival ‘We Are Family’.
The festival celebrates and showcases some of the finest talent in the North East, whilst regenerating cultural and economic interest in the region. The concept was derived, curated and produced by the band and their management team. The event in September 2015 featured exciting performances by some of the greatest musicians from the area, over 15 artists in total.
It was hosted at Jacksons Landing, a council owned 5,000 capacity venue at Hartlepool Marina which has been disused for over a decade. Working alongside regional organisations including Camerons Brewery, Tees Music Alliance, Gentoo, and Metro TFM radio The Jar Family delivered a vibrant and innovative festival to the people of the North East and galvanised the area with an accessible music event of distinction.
