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 fan base is notoriously loud, thirsty, loyal and very large. 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. Intrigued?! 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.
In 2014 the lads recorded new material at the legendary Monnow Valley Studios with acclaimed producer Rupert Christie and they released a new album ‘Family First’ in September 2015.
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.
