Jon Boden is best known as the lead singer of the progressive folk juggernaut Bellowhead. After twelve years, 250,000 album sales, seven singles playlisted on Radio 2 and hundreds of sold out venues, Bellowhead split in May 2016. Now Jon is heading out on a solo tour for the first time.  

One of the stand out performers of traditional music of his generation, Jon has won eleven BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards. Widely respected as an accomplished interpreter of traditional song, Jon has a musical repertoire which extends far beyond the boundaries of just one genre. 

This new show combines elements from the broad creative span of his career, from the self-penned songs of debut solo album Painted Lady – with a special 10th anniversary reissue of this album ahead of the tour – material from Bellowhead, Spiers & Boden, Songs From The Floodplain, and his A Folk Song A Day project in which he recorded 365 folk songs in one year.

Jon’s compelling live shows provide insight into a man of many and various talents who manages to draw audiences deeper into the worlds of traditional music and of his own highly accomplished song writing.

A master on fiddle, guitar and concertina, as well as his trademark ‘stompbox’, Jon Boden is a true folk dynamo you won't want to miss.
