Jon Boden & The Remnant Kings
Thursday 19th October
seated venue (reserved)
Jon Boden has become a stand out performer of his generation of English folk artists, and one whose repertoire extends far beyond the boundaries of the genre.
Perhaps best known as the lead singer, and one of the principal arrangers, of the multi-award winning Bellowhead, Jon has also performed with Spiers & Boden and formed his own band Jon Boden & The Remnant Kings in 2009. Both were set aside while the folk juggernaut that was Bellowhead went on to play to huge audiences across the UK, Europe and beyond. In 2016 Bellowhead split and Jon launched his solo career.
For Manchester Folk Festival Jon will bring a freshly launched and extended big band version of The Remnant Kings back to the stage. Featuring the great talents of Bellowhead’s Sam Sweeney and Paul Sartin, plus Leveret’s Rob Harbron and more, the appearance will be supported by the release of a new Jon Boden album in early autumn.
