Broadside

Bellowhead

Broadside is a positive spectacular, taking some of the wildest, most joyous and iconic songs in the richly colourful canon of the folk song tradition… and turning them upside down and inside out with the unique sense of drama and theatre, instrumental virtuosity, verve, humour and blind cheek that has seen them spearhead the new folk boom.

Matachin

Bellowhead

Independent 5*****

A superb second album. Jazz, classical, dance, barbershop, rockabilly, folk… it’s all in here, a costume box full of characters raging with unruly life. A Jacobean rock’n’roll that celebrates whiskey, haunts lovers and draws a sharp sword.

MOJO "A thrilling frenzy” 5*****

fRoots - Astonishing. A landmark... Bellowhead are taking the music forward with a flair and urgency rarely heard in these parts and I, for one, can't wait for them to make a proper album.
