Jon Boden & Blair Dunlop
12 Nov 2016
Jon Boden is best known as the lead singer and main arranger of the progressive folk juggernaut Bellowhead. After twelve years, a quarter of a million album sales, seven singles on the Radio 2 playlist and selling out hundreds of venues throughout the land and beyond, including notably the Royal Albert Hall, Jon is launching his first ever solo tour.
Widely respected as an interpreter of traditional song, the solo shows will also showcase Jon’s instrumental talents on fiddle, guitar and concertina, as well as his trademark ‘stompbox’ which he and John Spiers introduced into to the world of traditional music in 2001. It will be an intimate insight into a man of many and various talents and promises to take the audience deeper into the song worlds of traditional music and of his own songwriting.
Support: Blair Dunlop
As heard on BBC Radio 2, Blair Dunlop is on the way up. Winner of the Horizon Award at the 2013 BBC folk awards, Blair’s appearance on the scene has been building rapidly, having already played a host of Festivals this summer including Glastonbury, as well as a live session with Michael Ball. Remarked by the Guardian as, “an increasingly adventurous songwriter”, Dunlop’s new album “Gilded” was released in May 2016 on his own record label, Gilded Wings Records.
