Return of Bellowhead's Jon Boden at South Holland Centre

By Spalding Today Columnist

Two fantastic music concerts are lined-up for the South Holland Centre main stage this month.

First up is the long awaited return of Jon Boden (most recognisable as the lead singer of the multi-award winning folk super-group Bellowhead), who played to a packed house here back in 2016.

Now on a brand new tour with his four-piece folk string band, Boden has his sights firmly set on his Spalding concert taking place here on Thursday March 14 at 8pm.

Featuring the finest musicians drawn from his Remnant Kings big band, Jon Boden & The Remnant Strings will perform material from his 2017 album Afterglow, interspersed with songs and tunes from across his career.

The band line-up is Jon Boden on fiddle, guitars, concertina and stomp-box, Helen Bell on viola, Morven Bryce on violin and Lucy Revis on cello. Tickets are £20 or £10 for some concessionary groups.

The following week will delight fans of our ever-popular Americana programme with a concert by a U.S. roots quintet who beautifully walk the line between contemporary and traditional bluegrass.

Fast gaining recognition and awards for their outstanding performances across the pond, Mile Twelve have been on a swift rise since their formation in 2014. Based in Boston, Massachusetts, this engaging young five-piece deliver breathtaking live performances which feature outstanding musicianship and vocal harmonies (all five members sing).

Their entertaining material includes some creative covers, as well as their own acclaimed bluegrass and folk originals and a sprinkling of traditional songs. Catch them if you can when they play live here in Spalding on Friday March 22. Tickets are £14, £13 concessions.

Other folk, blues and jazz gigs coming up over the next few months include The Nat King Cole Story, Fairport Convention and The Blues Band.
