The Orange Circus Band is a raucous indie folk pop collective based in the UK, with roots in Virginia, USA.
Whilst having a hand in roots, rock and gospel music, and updating traditional songs taken from The Blue Ridge Mountains – largely inspired by Granny Alice – The Orange Circus Band produces original music that has a wholly unique, fresh sound. You can expect wild playing, beautiful harmonies and boundless energy guaranteed to raise the rood and warm the hearts.
Whilst releasing the single ‘Gold ‘n’ Rum’ with its accompanying video shot across northern Italian territory, The Orange Circus Band is getting ready for a stack of UK gigs across the summer, festival line-ups, touring Europe, whilst also hosting the ‘Walking with Music’ tour across southern Spain.
Their first single release, Carmen Town, was produced by Leigh Lawson (Mumford & Sons, CRYPTOCHROME). Click on the link to watch the playful video to Carmen Town, animated by Marvel comic artist, Guillermo Ortego.
