About The Jamestown Brothers

Contemporary folk band
Bridgwater
Soul stirring, foot-stomping, original songs drawn from the well of country, blues and folk.

The Jamestown Brothers are an 8-piece band from Somerset. We play original songs influenced by folk, country and blues with lyrics that mine the rich history and social tapestry of Great Britain and Ireland. With a unique line-up of guitars and banjo, piano, bass, drums, fiddle, recorders and trombone, the band creates a really full sound with intricate instrumental interplay taking the audience through a lively set of foot-tapping songs.

Customer questions

What do your clients love most about your performances?

Our unique, original sets of upbeat, ‘danceable’ material.

Do you have different line-up options?

Our eight piece line up presents our unique sound and we would not do our material justice by performing with less than the full complement.

What if my timings change after I've booked you?

We stand by our reputation of being flexible and fair with clients.

Can you provide an iPod/DJ service before and between your sets?

Yes. We consult with clients before the event to determine their musical preferences, and prepare an appropriate playlist which is played through our PA system.

How much time do you need to set up?

Around an hour to complete set-up, and do line and sound checks.

Can you roam around while you perform?

No. We perform on stage.

Can I pick the songs you play from the set list?

Clients who have previously heard us perform live can of course choose favourite songs from our set list.

Is all of the equipment (e.g. PA & lighting) included in your quote?

Yes.

Can you learn song requests before the event?

No, but the disco option usually resolves this.
