Over the course of his career, Jon Boden has become one of the outstanding performers of traditional music of his generation. In one capacity or another, he has won eleven BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards. Though widely respected for his role as a highly accomplished interpreter of traditional song, Jon Boden has a musical repertoire which extends far beyond the boundaries of just one genre. Now that the exuberant big band Bellowhead which Jon fronted has now come to a close, Jon has decided to explore a more simple, pared down sound.
Best known as the lead singer and main arranger of Bellowhead, after 12 years, a quarter of a million album sales, seven singles on the BBC Radio 2 playlist and selling out hundreds of venues and festival stages, Jon Boden announced in 2015 that he wanted to move on.
