Band on stage with various instruments including a violin and guitars.

About

Following a stunning debut performance in 2022, this high energy “folk, roots and rock & roll” 5 or 6 piece band is back. Based in-and-around the musically vibrant West Yorkshire market town of Otley, they are best described as “exploding out of the same box as The Pogues, The Saw Doctors, and The Waterboys”. The band have a great reputation on the live circuit. They are known as the 'go to' band for finishing off the night in a joyful, energetic and chorus  filled way.

Amongst a host of accolades, the band, who regularly perform at festivals and venues across the North of England, has been hailed “A blur of hedonistic delight” by Fatea Showcases and “the best upbeat folk band around” by the Yorkshire Gig Guide.

With the release of their latest album “One Fine Day” the band received outstanding reviews in the national and local music press.

The album was produced by the highly regarded David Crickmore (Steve Tilston, Pete Coe, Jez Lowe) and comprises 12 new songs all written by Jon. The subject matters are varied and far-ranging including songs about the musically rich Yorkshire market town of Otley so strongly associated with the band, an economic migrant, a big road, Trump, Brexit, murder, making a new start, a highway woman, and a depressed 19th century mill worker.

One Fine Day features Jon’s excellent band throughout and guesting on guitar and backing vocals on several songs is Baz Warne from The Stranglers. Producer David Crickmore also gets to play a range of instruments on many of the tracks.
