Bellowhead jingling bells for Christmas

Bellowhead will be embarking on a major tour of the UK throughout November, and dates are selling out fast!

Bellowhead: Big band, big show
Renowned for the intense drama and theatricality of their live performances, since their formation in 2004 Bellowhead have occupied a unique place in Britain’s musical landscape: a blistering 11-piece band fusing English folk, funk, rock, world, jazz, music hall and classical music which has also succeeded in placing themselves at the cutting edge of the contemporary music scene. 

Later, on December 1st, Bellowhead will be releasing a proper old fashioned sort of Christmas single, ‘Christmas Bells/Jingle Bells’, but with a customary Bellowhead sort of a twist. 

At the end of 2013 they will continue their custom of seeing in the New Year in riotous style. Previous New Year’s Eve parties at the Southbank Centre have included such wonders as boxer-shorts bingo, an ABBA ceilidh, and sailor and circus themed performances. This time the end of year revelry will be held at Bristol Old Vic, with the promise of sundry delights and surprises in store for the lucky partygoers. 

The band's "who has the daftest hat?" competition has a clear winner...
And  the excitement continues into 2014 with the publication of a Bellowhead songbook by Faber Music in March. The following month the band will celebrate their 10th anniversary with two very special concerts: Manchester Bridgwater Hall on 19th April, and London’s Royal Albert Hall on 20th April
