About

After 11 years Bellowhead have decided to call it a day - Book Now to see one of their final shows, at The Hexagon in April 2016. 

Since their formation in 2004 Bellowhead have occupied a unique place in Britain’s musical landscape: a blistering 11-piece band fusing folk, funk, rock, world, jazz, music hall and classical music, they have placed themselves at the cutting edge of the contemporary music scene while harnessing all the power and mystery of English and European musical traditions.

Their most recent album ‘Broadside’ entered the UK album charts at number 16, spawned 3 play-listed singles on BBC Radio 2 and was voted ‘Best Album’ at the 2013 Folk Awards. The second Bellowhead album to be produced by the legendary John Leckie (Stone Roses/Radiohead/Muse), Broadside is poised to achieve silver status, emulating the success of its predecessor, 2010’s ‘Hedonism’ - the highest-selling independently-released traditional folk album of all time which topped fRoots Critics’ Poll for Best Album of 2010 and won Bellowhead Best Group in Songlines 2011 Music Awards.

But while their recorded exploits have gone from strength to strength, it’s their explosive, spectacular and theatrical live shows that win the most acclaim. 5-times winner of ‘Best Live Band’ at the Radio 2 Awards, Bellowhead have transported folk music into hitherto unknown territory and spearheaded the new folk boom. They are “the greatest live act in Britain” says BBC Radio 2’s Simon Mayo and the hordes of fans that treat every gig as a party clearly agree.
