Or to rephrase: Bellowhead. The best live band. You’ll see…
…or you will if you catch them on their current tour. Bellowhead in full flight is an awesome thing – my favourite live band by a mile. And – smugly – I saw them again this week at the Brighton Dome; simply stunning!
They are incredibly tight, and their arrangements are brilliant and sophisticated and they’re just huge fun. Jon Boden in particular is mesmerising on stage.
Here’s a clip of them at Shrewsbury folk festival earlier in the year. They’re playing their version of Haul Away, a typically inventive and driving arrangement.
Catch Bellowhead live if you can! (And add their new album, Broadside, to your Christmas list…)
