Blair Dunlop Colston Hall Presents at Bristol Folk House, Friday 26 April 2019

Blair Dunlop, the award-winning British singer, songwriter and guitarist, has now released 3 albums 2 ep’s and toured widely around the globe.  All of this in a short 4-year career is astounding alone but what sets Blair apart from his peers is the lyrical and musical maturity with which he writes.  His third album ‘Gilded’ was released in May 2016 on his own label –Gilded Wings –and was widely acclaimed gaining BBC Radio 2 Playlist status for the twosingle releases (‘The Egoist’and ‘356’)both of which were remixed by Ed Harcourt.  Prior to this Blair released his acclaimed album ‘House Of Jacks’ in mid 2014whichlived up to the promise of his 2012 debut ‘Blight and Blossom’ (the quality of which contributed to his winning theBBC Radio 2 Horizon Award).  Blair has now cemented his place as one of Britain’s most exciting talents to come from the folk scene. The Guardian stated that the ‘House Of Jacks’ proves Blair is ‘an increasingly adventurous songwriter’, Uncut reviewed it as ‘thoughtful and exploratory’, The Independent on Sunday described it as ‘fluent, lamentory and accomplished’ while Q Magazine wrote that House of Jacks is ‘an exciting glimpse of where traditional folk might go’.

2018 Blair saw the release of his4thalbum ‘Notes From An Island’ on his own label to rave reviews. On this album he brings in previous collaborator Ed Harcourt as producer.  After successful tours of Australia (March 2018) and the UK (October 2018) Blair has cemented his place amongst UK folk influenced songwriters and leaps into 2019 with shows in Switzerland, Canada and Germany followed by a UK tour in April 2019 and a bucket load of festivals through summer 19
