Jon Boden & The Remnant Strings
Best known as lead singer of the folk big band Bellowhead, who sold over a quarter of a million albums over their twelve year career, Jon Boden‘s repertoire extends far beyond the boundaries of the folk genre.
Drawn from the line-up of Jon’s genre-busting big band The Remnant Kings, Jon Boden & The Remnant Strings features Jon Boden (fiddle, guitars, concertina, stomp-box), Helen Bell (viola), Morven Bryce (violin) and Lucy Revis (cello). This special performance offers a more intimate experience. Expect music from Jon’s solo albums and from across his career including Bellowhead, Spiers & Boden and Folk Song A Day.
