Folkworks: Jon Boden & The Remnant Kings

Sage Two

Jon Boden has become the ‘stand out performer of his generation’ (The Guardian) of traditional folk artists, but one whose repertoire extends far beyond the boundaries of the genre. He is best known as the lead singer and main arranger of the progressive folk juggernaut Bellowhead.

After twelve years, a quarter of a million album sales, seven singles on the Radio 2 playlist and selling out hundreds of venues throughout the land and beyond, including notably the Royal Albert Hall, Jon announced in 2015 that he wanted to move on. The rest of the band decided not to continue without him. Bellowhead played their final gig on May 1st 2016.

“Ambitious, genre-busting folk.” The Guardian
