Celebrating 20 years since Bellowhead burst onto the British folk scene

In 2004, Bellowhead burst onto the British folk scene like nothing before or since. Famously conjured up by duo Spiers & Boden whilst sitting in a traffic jam, they roped in friends, and friends of friends until the big band was born.

In their early years Bellowhead played to hundreds of thousands of people at festivals and on tour and were regularly lauded as 'One of the country’s greatest live outfits'. They recorded 5 studio albums (selling over a quarter of a million copies), were the proud recipients of 2 x silver discs and won a staggering 8 x BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards.

After a hiatus, and prompted by a record-breaking online stream during the pandemic, the band reunited for a joyous sold-out tour in 2022 which reaffirmed their status as one of the biggest and most in demand UK folk acts. A review from one of the shows in the Telegraph described it as 'A thrilling reunion gig ……. rowdy, riotous fun'.

2024 not only marks Bellowhead’s 20th Anniversary, it’s also 20 years since the release of their debut 5 track E.P. Onymous and 10 years since the release of their Top 20 studio album Revival which featured favourites including Gosport Nancy and Roll Alabama.

The band say “The reunion tour in 2022 meant such a lot to all of us after such a difficult time, and seemed to bring so much joy to our fans, that we thought we'd probably best do it again!”
