An 11-piece collective of extremely talented musicians, Bellowhead uniquely mix music from around the globe; from big band to soul, jazz-funk to classical strings, with more than a dash of Music Hall and yet retain, at their core, a passion for English traditional music.
From the wild, rousing dance tunes to the theatricality of their ballads & sea songs this is a band that are also funny, subtle and always engaging. Winners of the Best Live Band accolade at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards an astonishing (and unparalleled) 5 times, Bellowhead appeal to a very broad demographic. Their energetic and outstanding live performances have built them a loyal live following around the UK and Europe. The band are currently writing and recording the follow-up to their highly acclaimed album ‘Hedonism’ which, since its release in October 2010, has gone on to sell a boundary-crossing 60,000 albums. Support comes from Mama Rosin.
