JON BODEN - SPRING 2018 DATES ANNOUNCED FOR SOLO DATES AND FOR JON BODEN AND THE REMNANT KINGS In the wake of his critically acclaimed album ‘Afterglow’ (Hudson Records), released October ’17 – ‘Resurrects the brassy swagger of Bellowhead’ (Financial Times), ‘Ambitious, genre-busting folk’ (The Guardian) – Jon Boden announces new live dates for spring 2018. A multi-BBC Folk Award winning artist, Jon Boden has become woven into the fabric of the English folk scene having established his name first as one half of Spiers & Boden and then for his role as frontman for one of the most successful English folk bands ever, Bellowhead, who racked up a quarter of a million album sales and seven singles on the Radio 2 playlist over twelve years which saw them play the BBC Proms in The Park, Glastonbury, The Royal Albert Hall and more across sold out tours. Now flexing his musical muscles in his own right, Boden has delivered and album and a new eleven-piece big band, Jon Boden & The Remnant Kings - which includes fellow Bellowheaders Sam Sweeney and Paul Sartin along with Leveret’s Rob Harbron and Ben Nicholls and Richard Warren from Kings Of The South Seas plus brass and strings sections - which is attracting media attention, including a further Radio 2 playlisting for the first single from the album ‘All The Satrs Are Coming Out Tonight‘, and ectatsic audience reactions. ’Recalling Gabriel-era Genesis with a dash of Bush and Bowie’ The Observer ‘Springy fingerpicking and rolling drums convey the thrill of an anarchic street celebration.’ The Independent ‘Vivid lyrics, striking imagery, challenging arrangements… A. Major. Work.’ fRoots A narrative album telling of a love story in a nightime carnival of fire set in a post-oil world, it draws audiences into an atmospheric setting of barrel fires and star light, which at the live shows are accentuated by ambitious lighting designed by Emma Thompson to pick up the themes of light and dark which run throughout ‘Afterglow’.
