Spiers and Boden

Spiers and Boden

Cast Second Space (unallocated)

Tue 19 March


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, which sold out The Royal Albert Hall several times, provides the theme tune for Radio 4’s The Archers and were recently heard on the soundtrack of BBC 1’s Beyond Paradise

The much-loved 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 September 2021’s Official Folk Albums Chart and was a Mojo Magazine top-10 folk album of 2021.

"It’s all exquisitely played – the pair are still the dons." - The Observer

"Boden’s impassioned singing brings fresh life to little-heard songs, along with the perfectly balanced pairing of his fiddle with Spiers’s melodeon." ★★★★★ - The Scotsman

"This is traditional folk delivered with modern verve" - EDS
