Bellowhead Live: The Farewell Tour
Deluxe triple disc (2CD + DVD) of previously unreleased live audio and film from the first of 2 farewell tours by 11 piece British folk band, Bellowhead, recorded in November 2015. 52 tracks in total!
Formed in 2004, the band 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,’ Navigator Records, 2010) and the highest charting independently-released UK folk album of all time too, (‘Broadside,’ Navigator Records, 2012). Bellowhead are the proud recipients of two silver discs and have won a total of eight BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards. The band’s last studio album ‘Revival’ (2014) entered the UK Album Charts at no.12 and led to three BBC Radio 2 play-listed singles, as well as appearances on mainstream TV.
Early in 2015, lead singer Jon Boden decided to step down from the band and the rest of Bellowhead felt they didn’t want to continue without him. “The shows always finish on a high, and so should we” – Bellowhead. The two audio CDs includes 29 tracks recorded during the November 2015 tour whilst the DVD features the band’s full concert from Leicester’s De Montfort Hall, 19th November 2015.
