The Orange Circus is an indie bluegrass band based in the UK, with roots in Virginia. Despite having a hand in traditional roots music, they produce a wholly unique, contemporary sound.
They have played with artists such as Noah and The Whale’s Urby Whale, Michele Stodart of The Magic Numbers, The Grahams, and Born Crooked.
They have guested at The 100 Club, and the world-famous Troubadour in London where Bob Dylan first performed when he came to London. Other faces of old include Charlie Watts, Sammy Davis Jnr and Jimi Hendrix. And more recently it has guested Adele, Ed Sheeran and Laura Marling.

“Theirs is a fresh, bright, exciting sound with energy and pizzaz aplenty” – Fatea Magazine
“The Orange Circus Band is a band that fill my heart with joy and make me sing out loud. An amazing collective of musicians with an incredible collection of songs” – Jason Dorman, The Tubridge Wells Forum (UK’s best small music venue as voted by NME)
