Bellowhead added to the BBC Radio 2 Playlist

Bellowhead’s New York Girls has just been added to the BBC Radio 2 Playlist, the song which is taken from Bellowhead’s recent best of album, Pandemonium: The Essential Bellowhead was originally featured on their 2010 album Hedonism.

Formed in 2004, Bellowhead scarcely imagined that one day they’d be headlining major UK and international festivals and selling out tours of major concert halls, or that they’d sell in excess of 250,000 albums, including the highest selling independently released traditional album of all time (Hedonism) and the highest charting independently-released UK folk album of all time too (Broadside).

Back in 2010, Jon Boden talked to the Guardian about the origins of the song, head on over to the Guardian site to watch this plus a live performance.
