Noble Jacks in Concert

Show Details

Presented by Noble Jacks

Performance date and time
Friday, 1st February 2019
7:30 PM

This rip-roaring alt-folk band brings a roof raising energy to its live shows, imbuing its heartfelt, anthemic songs with feelgood folky footstompin' rhythms and vivid lyricism. Exhilarating to hear. _________________________________________________________________

Will Page: vocals, fiddle

Matt Deveson: guitar

Ant Longhurst: bass

Declan Haughian: drums

This is the kind of brilliantly catchy alt-country music (with a folk-rock undertow) that begs to be experienced live. It bursts forward with a stream of restless and rallying energy; their big anthemic songs are affirming stuff, their melodies made to bang your foot on the ground to. And central to their sound is the soaring and infectious fiddle charge, faultless lead vocals, roaring and rocky guitar and blues wailing harmonica.

A hugely enjoyable and delightfully rough soundscape.

'Their music is just the kind of sonic elixir we need in these troubled times.' Acoustic Magazine

'Wit with wisdom, you should investigate Noble Jacks.' fRoots Magazine

Noble Jacks have been relentlessly touring through 2017, stompin' their way round the British folk scene with sold out headline shows and appearing at major festivals including Glastonbury, Cambridge Folk Festival and Costa Del Folk (Portugal).

'Crackerjack live shows... undeniably catchy.' fRoots Magazine

'Upbeat live set... combines [the] catchy hooks of folk bands such as the Levellers with the foot stomping and fiddle shuffling of artists such as Seth Lakeman, along with earthy, warm and ambient vibes of The Eagles/Mumford & Sons.' Brighton Argus
