Folk giants Bellowhead announce Hall for Cornwall gig
ONE OF the country's biggest folk bands – both in popularity and membership – have announced a concert at the Hall for Cornwall.
Since their formation in 2004 Bellowhead have occupied a unique place in Britain's musical landscape: a blistering 11-piece band fusing folk, funk, rock, world, jazz, music hall and classical music, they have placed themselves at the cutting edge of the contemporary music scene while harnessing all the power and mystery of ancient English and European musical traditions.
Their third album, Hedonism, was the highest-selling independently-released traditional folk album of all time, sold a staggering 60,000 copies and was awarded a silver disc. Their new album, Broadside, entered the UK album charts at No 16, spawned an A-listed single on BBC Radio 2 and won Best Album at the 2013 Folk Awards.
Yet it's still their explosive, spectacular and theatrical live shows that win them the most acclaim.

Five-times winner of Best Live Band at the Radio 2 Awards, they have transported folk music into hitherto unknown territory and spearheaded the new folk boom.
They are "the greatest live act in Britain" says BBC Radio 2's Simon Mayo and the hordes of dancing fans grinning and singing along and treating every gig as a party clearly agree.
The play Truro's Hall for Cornwall on Monday, November 18.
