BLAIR DUNLOP PRESENTED BY DICTIONARY PUDDING
Blair Dunlop will tour selected venues for a series of intimate solo shows in April 2019. Building on the successes of the recent album Notes From and Island and a full band tour late in 2018, Blair launches into 2019 with shows in Canada and Germany, leading to his spring UK tour. Following this Blair will be appearing at a bucket-load of festivals in 2019. Happy days!
From the start, Blair Dunlop’s albums have enjoyed critical acclaim, with each one expanding his musical horizons, his audience and his prodigious songwriting gifts. Now, with the release of his fourth album, Notes From An Island, it’s obvious that he remains consumed by the urge to make music. ‘With every record I’m getting closer to what I want to achieve and I think this is comfortably my best album to date.’
Coming from a man still in his mid-20s, whose debut album, Blight & Blossom, won the coveted Horizon Award at the 2013 BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards, whose 2010 debut EP is now a collector’s item and who was declared the ‘vital bridge between Brit folk’s first and latest flowerings’ by Q magazine, these are strong sentiments indeed.
‘Blair is a true artist in his prime…. He has it all; a wry turn of phrase in his words, barbed & moving within a second, seriously demonic guitar skills that belie his youthful looks (curses under breath) & a voice like some sort of melancholy angel. But most of all you will hear just great songs’ Ed Harcourt
