Jon Boden has become the stand out performer of his generation of traditional folk artists, but one whose repertoire extends far beyond the boundaries of the genre.

Jon Boden is best known is the lead singer of the progressive folk juggernaut Bellowhead. After twelve years, 250,000 album sales, seven singles playlisted on Radio 2 and hundreds of sold out venues, Bellowhead split in May 2016.

Now autumn 2016 sees Jon tour for first time performing entirely solo, presenting the self-penned songs of Painted Lady, material from Bellowhead, Spiers & Boden, Songs From The Floodplain, and his A Folk Song A Day project in which he recorded 365 folk songs in one year.

This event was due to take place at The Met but due to our refurbishment will now take place at The Elizabethan Suite. For more information please click here
