“With no place to go and no bricks to call home, we all found each other so no-one was alone. Now we dance and sing ’till the sunrise again, to the circus we ran like the blood through our veins”
What started as a dream has evolved to be a travelling, working circus full of adventure and camaraderie. 2012 has seen a folk, country and blues explosion right from the heart of England.
Young, old and in-between audiences are becoming electrified by heart-on-the-sleeve songs. Melodies steeped in tradition, performed with passion and delivered in a modern tongue. Carousel Circus are a hard-working and established 7-piece band, drowning in imagination yet sailing with a fresh solitary charm.
Having performed their music supporting many an established name (including Ocean Colour Scene, Levellers, N-Dubz, Juan Zelada, The Rifles, Example, Bez (Happy Mondays), Kill the Young and Hawkwind) the Circus have also treaded the boards at some great venues, such as Birmingham Symphony Hall, London Islington Academy and Liverpool’s Cavern Club. In addition to this tracks such as “Dandelions & Fairies” and “I Aint Gonna Go Back” have also found airplay as part of the BBC’s Introducing program and Kerrang! Radio hosted the band for a live performance as part of the breakfast show.
The Circus will soon be coming to a town near you, so roll on up for the greatest show on earth…
