John Spiers & Jon Boden are well known for their involvement as founding members of the big band folk phenomenon that is Bellowhead. They have played together as a duo for over 10 years now and have established themselves as a very well respected act on the English traditional music scene.
Together they play fiddle, guitar, assorted squeezebox instruments, a stomp box and they both sing – a combination which sounds like a two-man-one-man-band! Their music is equally at home playing to 50 people in the intimate setting of the back room of a pub, or 10,000 on the main stage at Cambridge Folk Festival!
“They’ve recorded five rapturously received albums, expanded the basic duo in to all conquering big-band Bellowhead, and generally given the British folk movement it’s biggest shot of energy and inspiration for years.” – Mojo Magazine
“Taking traditional folk music by the scruff of the neck and giving it a thrilling new perspective.” – The Sun
“Joyousness reigns.” – The Observer
