An interview with Jon Boden
Ahead of his show here on Friday 1 March with The Remnant Kings (Sam Sweeney, Paul Sartin, Rob Harbron and Rick Foot), we find out about Jon Boden's music, his inspirations, and plans for the year ahead.
Describe your music?
Survivalist post-oil folkapocalyptica.
Peter Bellamy, Tom Waits, Kate Bush
There have been quite a few but playing the Roundhouse in Camden with Bellowhead last year was pretty cool.
What was the first tune you learnt to play?
Merrily Kissed the Quaker
Most recent discovery?
Who we should look out for in 2013?
Fay Hield and the Full English tour. And I’m not just saying that...
Spiers & Boden will be doing the ‘Backyard Tour’ in April, then Bellowhead will be playing at Kew Gardens amongst other places during the summer and undertaking another big tour in the Autumn. I’m also hoping to curate a weekend festival of musical Apocalyptica in 2014. Early days though.
Buy tickets for the show.
