Description

Blair last played at Acoustic Roots Wigan in December 2016 and we are excited to announce, he is back to kick off our Acoustic Roots 2018 season.

Blair Dunlop, the award-winning British singer, songwriter and guitarist, has now released 3 albums, 2 EP’s and toured widely around the globe. All of this in a short 4-year career is astounding alone, but what sets Blair apart from his peers is the lyrical and musical maturity with which he writes. His third album ‘Gilded’ was released in May 2016 on his own label – Gilded Wings – and was widely acclaimed gaining BBC Radio 2 Playlist status for the two single releases (‘The Egoist’ and ‘356’) both of which were remixed by Ed Harcourt.

Blair has now cemented his place as one of Britain’s most exciting talents to come from the folk scene. The Guardian stated that the ‘House Of Jacks’ proves Blair is ‘an increasingly adventurous songwriter’, Uncut reviewed it as ‘thoughtful and exploratory’, The Independent on Sunday described it as ‘fluent, lamentory and accomplished’ while Q Magazine wrote that House of Jacks is ‘an exciting glimpse of where traditional folk might go’.

The evening will be opened by Susie Jones who is also returning to Acoustic Roots.
