Melting Vinyl Presents: JON BODEN + Support
Jon Boden (Bellowhead) has become the stand out performer of his generation of traditional folk artists, but one whose repertoire extends far beyond the boundaries of the genre. He comes to Brighton as part of his first ever solo tour.
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.
