One of the UK’s hottest young acts Into The Ark will support their hero and mentor Tom Jones at Scarborough Open Air Theatre show this summer.

Sir Tom will play live at Europe’s largest open air theatre on Sunday July 2. Joining him on stage will be Into The Ark – the buskers-turned-singing stars he coached all the way to the The Voice.

Speaking on The Voice Sir Tom said: “These two boys are unique. There’s nothing around them like this at the moment. They don’t copy anybody, they are original.”

Hailing from Blackwood in South Wales, Into the Ark are made up of 21-year-old Taylor Jones and 25-year-old Dane Lloyd.

Promoters’ Cuffe and Taylor director Peter Taylor said: “Into The Ark are quite rightly being tipped for big things and we are delighted to add them to the bill at Scarborough.
