Noble Jacks

The low down on Noble Jacks

How would you describe your style and sound?

Defining our genre has always been a tricky one because we have a lot of influences! From the driving drums and electric guitar to high energy fiddle, we think folk-rock-Americana just about describes Noble Jacks!

The last 12 months have proved to be a stellar year for Noble Jacks – what have been your most memorable experiences?

I would say the most memorable ones have been our sell-out album launch show at Concorde2 in Brighton, our showcases at Country 2 Country Festival at The O2 London, Americana Fest in both London and Nashville, and our summer support shows with The Dead South. Our sold-out shows on our autumn tour of the UK were the icing on the cake!

Tell us more about the new album ‘Stay Awake Deluxe Edition’

The new deluxe edition of the Stay Awake album has been a great opportunity for Noble Jacks to add four new studio recordings to it, which will also be available on vinyl.  We’re really excited to be bringing these new tracks back to our live set too!

You’re headlining the Assembly Hall Theatre in Tunbridge Wells on March 28, what can fans expect from Noble Jacks on the night?

This will be the biggest indoor headline show for Noble Jacks to date and there will be a lot of singing, dancing and stomping, with songs showcased from all our albums. Some of them we haven’t actually performed live yet, and we’ll have the most instruments on stage we’ve ever had, so that’ll be fun for us too! To have our great friends: The Orange Circus and The Paul Dunton Orchestra on the same bill means a great deal to us, we can’t wait to hear them perform too!

What are the rest of your plans for 2020?

2020 is lining up to be even bigger than 2019, with the new album and a lot of new adventures ready to be announced! As well as the Assembly Hall gig we’ll be back out on tour with The Dead South, and we are planning a descent into the continent so watch this space!

Meet the Orange Circus

How would you describe your style and sound?

It’s a blend of folk, high energy bluegrass and country music. When we go out on stage we give it all we have, and play everything from heartbreaking ballads and footstomping bluegrass to feel-good anthems.

You recently met country music aficionado and Radio 2 presenter Bob Harris and performed for his Under The Apple Tree sessions – what was that like?

Bob and his team are very gracious hosts and it was an honour for us to be part of a session. He’s done so much for roots music and helps keep it alive. There really is an apple tree at his studio – hence the name!

What have been your highlights of 2019?

Definitely meeting Bob Harris and performing our Under The Apple Tree session, which was also featured on BBC News. We did a sold-out rural tour in Dorset, playing village halls and reaching out to communities, which was great as we got to meet so many wonderful people. Playing to a packed audience at The Long Road Festival at Stanford Hall in Leicestershire in September with everyone singing along to our songs was also pretty memorable.

You are also performing at the Assembly Hall Theatre in Tunbridge Wells on March 28 supporting Noble Jacks, tell us more about that concert and what it means to be involved?

We’ve known Will from Noble Jacks for a while now and so it’s great to see his and the band’s success developing. We played together with the Paul Dunton Orchestra to a sold out Trinity Theatre back in 2016 so to be doing it again at the Assembly Hall is as big as it gets for a hometown show – it’ll be explosive for sure.

What are the rest of your plans for 2020 and might we see you return to Calverley Grounds for Local & Live in August?

It’s going to be a big year for us! Firstly we’re releasing our second studio album next month, which is something we’ve been working on for the last two years and we’re super proud of it. We’ll then be touring the UK in the springtime and yes we can definitely confirm we will be headlining at Local & Live in August!

Noble Jacks and The Orange Circus are both performing at the Assembly Hall Theatre on March 28 – tickets can be purchased at
