'folk singer of the year'
BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards 2010
2013 Spring Tour
Very pleased to announce that, after a summer of fantastic festival appearances this year, Jon Boden & The Remnant Kings will be touring in March 2013. The band line-up includes fellow-Bellowheaders Sam Sweeney and Paul Sartin, plus concertina maestro Robert Harbron and double bass genius Rick Foot. Not to mention the return of Eric and Edith the wax cylinder machines…

Not all details are finalised yet but it’s looking like most of the gigs will feature an after-show sing in the venue bar. So plenty of time to get learning some songs to sing with the band (www.afolksongaday.com if you’re short of material…)

Festival season is upon us again. Jon Boden & The Remnant Kings have already played storming sets at Gate to Southwell and Big Session festivals. You can also catch them at Folk East and Shrewsbury Folk Festival
