The Jar Family

Hailing from Hartlepool. The Jar Family hold a festival in Hartlepool yearly which brings in massive crowds, as they are very popular in their hometown. They take the chance to showcase local talent and of course also headlining. The Jar Family are becoming popular all over the UK. They describe themselves as Industrial Folk but it hardly stops there, they cover a wide range of blues and roots influenced music. Some new fans are being drawn by the image of this gang of grown up Artful Dodgers in all their neo-Dickensian finery. Five multi-instrumentalists and vocalists, as well as a great rhythm section, they never fail to set the room on fire with their enthusiasm and stage presence.
They are:-
Max Bianco – vocals, guitar, harmonica, percussion
Dali – Vocals, guitar, slide guitar, percussion
Richie Docherty – vocals, guitar, percussion…
Chris Hooks – vocals, lead guitar
Keith Wilkinson – bass, vocals
Kez ‘jubjub’ Edwards – Drums

You will be entertained to a set of all self-penned numbers, which make it hard to keep your seat or stop your feet from tapping along with the music. Past support slots for The Alabama 3 on a few occasions as well as The Charlatans, Babyshambles, King Charles and Jake Bugg, confirms how well accepted they are in different genres.

See The Jar Family at The Wheelhouse on Saturday 24th March.
