The Founders of Bellowhead
Twice winners of the BBC Folk Award for Best Duo
Following on from an incredibly successful tenth anniversary tour including a special birthday party bash at Shepherds Bush Empire, the top traditional music duo on the scene continue their journey into the exciting nether-regions of traditional folk music.
Described by The Guardian as “the finest instrumental duo on the traditional scene” and twice winners of the BBC Radio 2 folk award for Best Duo, Spiers and Boden have made the genre of spontaneous, punky English folk very much their own stomping ground. Loud, proud, and with just a few acoustic instruments, they create a multitude of textures upon which they present traditional stories and dance music which have taken them on to the main stages of major festivals.
“Technically they stand head to head with the best of their generation... Jon Boden plays fiddle with an earthy vigour that's utterly compelling and sings in a frantic breathless manner as if the hounds of hell are taking lumps out of his backside, while John Spiers harmonises and plays urgent driving melodeon to a very high standard indeed... halfway to reinventing the style without even realising it…" fRoots Magazine

Running time approximately 110 minutes, including interval.
"Dynamics, drive and passion"
