Bridie Jackson and the Arbour will be playing on Thursday, April 17, from 8pm, at Derby’s Guildhall Theatre.

Bridie Jackson and The Arbour’s inspired harmony-led arrangements and heavenly strings, create a powerful, dark and hauntingly tender sound, which merges folk with touches of blues, jazz, baroque and gospel.

Winners of the 2013 Glastonbury Emerging Talent Competition, and the prestigious 2013 City Music Foundation Award, they frequently leave audiences spellbound with their enchanting, electrifying performances.

Widely proclaimed to be completely unique, Bridie Jackson & The Arbour have been championed by numerous tastemakers, including Guy Garvey BBC 6 Music, Fiona Talkington BBC Radio 3, Emily Brinnand The Guardian, and Mark Radcliffe Radio 2.

One of their most recent supporters, Dermot O’Leary, is so enamoured with the band that he has already hosted them for a live Saturday Session, guest-starred in their Glastonbury documentary and had them record a new jingle for his Radio 2 show.

Tickets, priced at £9, can be purchased from the Derby LIVE box office on 01332 255800 or online at
