Jon Boden
-------------
Best known for as lead singer of the folk big ban Bellowhead, which 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.
“Resurrects the swagger of Bellowhead" Financial Times
"Ambitious, genre-busting folk" The Guardian
-----------------
Kitty Macfarlane
------------------
Kitty Macfarlane is a songwriter and guitarist from Somerset, whose music is rich with visual imagery.
Carried by a clear voice 'controlled yet wild' (Folk Radio), her lyrics touch on intervention and rewilding, climate change and migration, woman’s age-old relationship with textiles and the land, and the changing face of the natural world.
From the starling murmurations of the Somerset Levels to the lowly eel's epic transatlantic migration, and the small part we ourselves play in a much bigger picture, her songs are bound by the underlying theme of mankind's relationship with the wild.
Cerebral and topical, honest and immediate, Kitty offers us thought-provoking and evocative compositions with wonderfully crafted soundscapes.
Her debut Namer Of Clouds was one of The Guardian's Best Folk Albums of 2018, and has been played BBC Radio 2, 3, 4 and 6 Music. Last year she was invited to guest-present two episodes of BBC Radio 4's Tweet of the Day and Kitty performed live in session on BBC Radio 2 at the beginning of 2019.
"Macfarlane’s vocal style is easy, tuneful and 'in the tradition'.. but what sets her work apart is her affinity with the natural world and some startlingly poetic lyrics... Delightful" The Observer
FATEA Female Artist of the Year 2018
