Look out for Jon's debut performance in a Hollywood blockbuster! Albeit playing a busker so now real acting talent required... in cinemas from Sep 2013 "About Time"
Sep 2013 - Little Musgrave
It's been one hell of a summer. Alongside a load of festivals with Bellowhead and Spiers & Boden Jon's squeezed in a performance of Elvis Costello's "The Juliet Letters" with the Sacconi Quartet at the Bristol Proms and a premier peformance of his first ever classical commission: "The Ballad of Little Musgrave" at the Snape Maltings. There are two more performances which feature Jon, Tim Van Eyken, Mary Hampton, James Findlay, the Peterborough male voice choir and a wonderful 5 piece instrumental ensemble. The gigs are:
15th Sep - Peterborough Cathedral
25th Sep - Sage, Gateshead
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…)
2012 Summer Festivals
Hope to see you at some them.
