BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards 2013: Horizon Award Winner
Blair Dunlop is heir to an impressive British folk dynasty, son of Fairport Convention/ Steeleye Span/ Albion Band icon Ashley Hutchings. Here, he sets out to prove that he is not just a phenomenal young guitarist and singer but an increasingly adventurous songwriter, with an entertaining and impressively varied set ranging from thoughtful, drifting murder ballads to upbeat songs with a bluegrass edge, and a series of distinctive traditionals.
What marks Blair out from his peers is both his incredible talent and his ability to craft meaningful songs that connect with everyone who claps ears on them. His personable performance style creates an intimate atmosphere, like being in your cosy front room on a cold winter’s night.
