Blair Dunlop - Trails

Show Details

Presented by Blair Dunlop

Performance date and time
Saturday, 16th October 2021
8:00 PM

Award-winning singer-songwriter Blair Dunlop’s programme offers an insight into both traditional and contemporary folk music. Off the back of his new live album 'Trails - Queensland' documenting his 2019/20 Australian tour where he played for isolated communities before moving on to major festival appearances, Blair continues the theme and brings it back to the UK.

‘Trails’ is a documentation of a time and a place (mid-Australian bushfire crisis) and the UK ‘small halls’ tour will include songs from Blairs own catalogue as well as tales from the road.

“Blair Dunlop could help bring the genre back to the forefront of the UK music scene.” Guitar Magazine 2018

“The busy crowd…is testament to Dunlop’s talents. Dunlop brings an air of tenacity while displaying a fine repertoire of well-crafted songs spanning traditional and contemporary. He’s determinedly taking the traditions of folk in his own direction” THE INDEPENDENT – Live review 2016
