“Dunlop’s fourth album finds him fully ensconced as a singer-songwriter of maturity and sophistication” **** – R’n’R
From the start, Blair Dunlop’s albums have enjoyed critical acclaim, with each one expanding his musical horizons, his audience and his prodigious songwriting gifts.
Blair’s debut album, Blight & Blossom, won the coveted Horizon Award at the 2013 BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards. With his 2010 debut EP now a collector’s item, Blair was declared the “vital bridge between Brit folk’s first and latest flowerings” by Q magazine.
“Blair is a true artist in his prime, as is wholly evident on this beautiful record. He has it all; a wry turn of phrase in his words, barbed & moving within a second, seriously demonic guitar skills that belie his youthful looks […] and a voice like some sort of melancholy angel. But most of all you will hear just great songs.” Ed Harcourt
Support Act: Ellie Gowers
Ellie Gowers has been making an impression wherever she lands. Her music embeds a fierce energy that echoes the 60’s folk revival scene and she is known to hold pride of place on stage with her strong and lucent vocals. Her songs are built from a childhood love of literature and traditional folk song, but also discuss the more modern narratives of the present day. These influences fuse together to create a sound that has been deemed unique and incomparable.
