Jack and Charlie’s well – known idiosyncratic approach to folk music and song writing has earned them an enviable reputation as two of the most exciting, heartfelt and challenging musicians around.
Their first two albums on Fellside Recordings, Light Up all the Beacons and The Northern Road followed them as finalists in the BBC Radio 2 Young Folk Awards, and were met with critical acclaim; their fresh and compelling sound inspiring audiences up and down the country and being described in The Sunday Times as “real folk – not nu-folk, folktronica, or some other apologetically named subgenre – and it doesn’t seem to need reinventing.”

Louise Petit

This music stamps it's feet to let you know it's there then gives you a great big hug once it's in.

“Take plenty of sunshine, a little soul, a dash of psychedelia and season with 60’s R’n’B, shake together well and this should give you the essence of The Incredible Magpie Band. The kind of music to summon up images of chilling out beneath the summer sun, Classic festival afternoon fare”

If someone threw Joni Mitchell and Ellie Goulding into a pop/folk flavoured cake and iced it with the sweetest mixture of honesty, level-headedness and positivity. Bristol born but we're glad she's currently residing in our fair city.
