Jon Boden


Jon Boden has become the standout performer of his generation of traditional English folk artists, but one whose repertoire extends far beyond the boundaries of the genre.  Jon Boden is best known for his performance in the Hollywood movie About Time – his Youtube audio of the track has over 9 million views – and as the lead singer and main arranger of the progressive folk juggernaut Bellowhead.  Widely respected as an interpreter of traditional song, his solo shows also showcase Jon’s instrumental talents on fiddle, guitar and concertina, as well as his trademark ‘stomp box’ which he and John Spiers introduced into to the world of traditional music in 2001. Through his solo work and his work with Bellowhead and Spiers & Boden, Jon has won eleven BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards, and promises to take the audience deeper into the song worlds of traditional music and of his own song writing.
