    Yard Act frontman James Smith has shared concert footage of him with his grandad covering Tom Jones‘ 1966 classic ‘Green Green Grass Of Home’.

    Smith took to Instagram to share a snippet of their cover at a recent gig in Warrington. You can view the footage below.

    “A few weeks ago my grandad Dave asked us if we knew ‘Green, Green Grass Of home’ by Tom Jones,” Smith wrote. “We didn’t. He said if we learnt it, he’d get up and sing it in Warrington. We said we would. He thought we were taking the piss.

    “Six pints of Guinness later, there he stood. He got a ‘Dave, Dave, Dave’ chant after and was absolutely buzzing. It felt good to be home, brief though it was.”

    The Leeds four-piece also recently shared a new video for their track ‘100% Endurance’, which featured on their debut album ‘The Overload’, which arrived back in January.

    They are currently in the middle of a UK tour which ends at Norwich Arts Centre on Friday (May 27).

    The band will perform at several festivals including Glastonbury before they hit the road for another UK tour in November. Tickets for their shows can be purchased here.
