Bellowhead play Stroud Subscription Rooms

Event ended

In two years the 11-piece folk-big-band Bellowhead have exploded onto the UK festival scene, fast becoming one of the most talked about bands on the contemporary folk circuit. And this month in Stroud, for one night only, county folk fans will be able to catch the band live at Stroud Subscription Rooms.

Playing on Thursday 24 April 2008, Bellowhead was formed in 2004 by the duo Spiers and Boden to headline the first Oxford Folk Festival, having since played across Europe taking in festivals including Glastonbury, Cambridge Folk Festival, The Big Chill, Summer Sundae and Roskilde Folk Festival.

Even more impressive is Bellowhead’s quickly growing cabinet of awards, receiving the prestigious BBC Radio 2 Folk Award for the Best Live Act in 2005, 2007 and 2008.

Audiences at their Stroud gig this month can expect a set steeped in the English folk traditions of song and dance, with exciting, intoxication, slightly sinister and deeply funky music all coming together in the form of big band.

Regulars at the Cheltenham Folk Festival, folk fans from far and wide won’t want to miss what is sure to be an eclectic, multi-instrumental and talented performance from Bellowhead.
