Described by The Guardian as “the finest instrumental duo on the traditional scene”, Spiers & Boden first rocketed onto the music scene in 2001, quickly winning a clutch of BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards and going on to form and front the extraordinarily successful folk big band Bellowhead.

The duo reformed in 2021 after a seven-year hiatus, arriving with a brand new album Fallow Ground which went on to reach number 3 in the Official Folk Albums Chart and was a Mojo top 10 folk album of 2021.

“It’s all exquisitely played – the pair are still the dons.” The Observer

Following a tour by their legendary big band Bellowhead in November ’22, the much-loved duo are back for a select number of dates in summer ’23.
