Former BBC Radio 2 Folk Award winners Bellowhead will be appearing live in St Albans this week.
The 11-piece band will be bringing their unique brand of folk music to the Alban Arena, in St Albans, on Thursday, August 21 at 8pm.
Bellowhead certainly know how to entertain on stage.
Whether it is appearing in a concert hall or at an open-air festival like Hatfield’s Folk by the Oak or V Festival in Chelmsford, Bellowhead guarantee a foot-stomping show.
Five-times winners of ‘Best Live Act’ at the prestigious BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards, Bellowhead have transported folk music into hitherto unknown territory, and spearheaded the new folk boom.
They are “the greatest live act in Britain”, according to BBC Radio 2 presenter Simon Mayo, and the thousands of fans that treat every gig like a party clearly agree.
Since their formation in 2004, Bellowhead have fused folk, funk, rock, world, jazz, music hall and classic, and placed themselves at the cutting edge of the contemporary music scene.
Tickets for their Alban Arena concert cost £19. Seated tickets for the show have sold out.
