I got the chance to film an acoustic band from the Durham in the North East. North Road is comprised of three members, Jack Robinson, Josh Henderson & Charlie Griffiths. They cover a range of instruments but primarily use acoustic, mainly guitars, their vocals and a Cajon drum.
North Road was formed in the summer of 2012 as all three of them studied for a diploma in Music at New College Durham. Prior to becoming North Road they played music individually and often did gig’s by themselves.
Tonight they would be performing in a small local pub called Shipwrights Hotel & Riverside Pub in Sunderland, just off the A1231. The pub provided us with a warm Christmas setting such as the open fire and the traditional decor.
North Road opened with their Christmas single Holiday Cheer which is raising money for Cash For Kids, a local charity helping children of the North East, and then went on to perform their covers of Pompeii and Too Close.
