In spring 2018 Jon Boden, former lead-singer of Bellowhead, will head out on the second leg of his “Afterglow” album tour - his first new release since leaving Bellowhead in May 2016. In the solo leg of the tour audiences can enjoy a close-up, intimate performance with Jon showcasing his infectious new material in a stripped-down, high-octane, very personal show. Using fiddle, guitar, concertina and his trade mark stomp box Boden also draws on material from throughout his fifteen year career including hits from Bellowhead, selections from his www.afolksongaday.com project and music from the Afterglow album.

‘Vivid lyrics, striking imagery, fascinating ideas, challenging arrangements and Boden’s characteristically striking vocals…it has to be considered a Major Work.’ fRoots review of Afterglow

‘Resurrects the brassy swagger of Bellowhead.’ ****Financial Times review of Afterglow

'In my experience nobody can bring you the chaos of a dystopian street carnival better than Jon Boden' Simon Mayo
