The Independent have called them ‘one to watch’ and they’re booked to play Live at Leeds festival!

Fletcher Jackson Band are made up of some of our Gateshead students. And they are fast becoming the North East’s hottest ticket! They are not only booked to play Live at Leeds festival but they are tipped as one of the bands to go and see by the Indiependent.

“For fans of the new wave of Bob Dylan imitators, take a detour to catch Fletcher Jackson’s set. He’s bringing back what Jake Bugg was trying to do with his debut album, but in a slightly more refreshing way. A raw, tuneful voice coupled with chugging guitars and pleasing melodies, Jackson’s songs will be a welcome respite from the more mainstream acts on the line up.” – Zia Larty-Healy, The Indiependant.
