When a band describe themselves as “a travelling, working circus full of adventure and camaraderie,” you know to expect something a little extraordinary. And that’s exactly what Carousel Circus are. Their music takes a dash of country and a sprinkling of blues, before placing it over a solid folk base. Dual harmonious vocals craft pleasingly enticing melodies,

In their time together, Carousel Circus have supported various names – from Ocean Colour Scene to N-Dubz, and from Bez (of Happy Mondays fame) to Hawkwind. With a number of shows and festival appearances set for the summer, Carousel Circus are well on their way, “drowning in imagination, yet sailing with a fresh solitary charm.”

When the imagery’s this grand, it’s hard to turn away. You can listen to Carousel Circus below.
