Sitting “somewhere between the lushness of Norah Jones and the quirkiness of Joanna Newsom”, Bridie Jackson & The Arbour’s music is simultaneously beautiful, ethereal, dark and powerful.

Revealed as winners of the 2013 Glastonbury Emerging Talent Competition, they are “the kind of beguiling, affable folk band whose sound feels so natural and inviting you wonder why your first listen wasn’t so much sooner”.

With their sparse instrumentation, intriguing vocal harmonies, and influences as diverse as gospel, Baroque and flamenco; the Newcastle-based quartet are frequently proclaimed to be completely unique. Enchanting, spellbinding, electrifying and magical, this is a live experience to be treasured.

The band formed gradually, drawing together experienced musicians from across the North East, with very different musical backgrounds but a shared passion for creating beautiful and interesting new music.

“I promise you that you have never heard anything like them before” Folk Radio UK

“Beautifully sung, performed and produced, it’s an impressive debut album” – 4* R2 Rock ‘n’ Reel Magazine

“Buzzing with understated power and vitality” – 5* Maverick Magazine

“The band sounds striking on record but has an extra dimension live; a tension born of fragility and an authority seated in sheer skill… These girls must tire of people saying how good they are yet I struggle to name a finer and more original act on the acoustic/folk circuit today.” – T. Hardy, Consequence of Sound
