Jon Boden and The Remnant Strings come to Spalding

Lovers of live music can enjoy a stomping show from Jon Boden and The Remnant Strings on Thursday, March 14.

With Jon on fiddle and guitars, concertina and stomp-box, Helen Bell (viola), Morven Bryce (violin) and Lucy Revis on cello, they are set to raise the roof when they play at the South Holland Centre in Spalding.

Widely respected as an interpreter and champion of traditional song, John’s album, ‘Afterglow’ proves that his repertoire extends far beyond the boundaries of the folk traditional genre.

Most recognisably, he was the lead singer (and one of the principal arrangers) of the multi-award winning Bellowhead, one of the most exciting live acts of recent years.

In 2015 he announced that he had decided to leave the band and, on May 1, 2016 Bellowhead played their final gig.

Since then, he has been out performing his 2017 album ‘Afterglow’ and other songs (including some from Bellowhead).

Jon said he is very excited about this tour. As a fiddle player, he finds it exhilarating to be immersed in the sound of string arrangements.

The arrangements are quite intricate and he has put a lot of work into them. In the mix of the big band, the strings can get a little lost, so with a stripped back string band it is a great way to be playing the songs.

  • Tickets for the concert are available from the South Holland Centre on 01775 764777. The performance starts at 8pm..
