John Boden & The Remnant Kings
Nominated Folk Singer of the Year – BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards 2012
Aside from two solo albums Jon has released several highly acclaimed albums with fast-rising big band Bellowhead (the latest of which is due to be released later this year) as well as Vagabond with the equally feted traditional duo, Spiers & Boden (2008). He has also recorded and performed with Eliza Carthy on one of her Mercury Prize nominated albums.
Jon Boden & the Remnant Kings includes fellow Bellowhead multi-instrumentalists Sam Sweeney and Paul Sartin plus concertina virtuoso Rob Harbron and double bass maestro Rick Foot. Also making a return appearance will be Eric and Edith, the two wax cylinder players that joined the band to great acclaim in their 2010 tour. Songs old, new and from the not too distant future. Boden’s voice is...
“the most potent weapon of mass seduction to have hit the scene in decades” (Stirrings)
