Folk stars ‘on tour’

With Ludlow Assembly Rooms currently undergoing building work, the team are ‘borrowing’ other venues to put on their shows. This is good news for Bridgnorth, which will host two very famous names on the folk scene in the coming months.

Sunday 3 March sees the visit of Jon Boden and the Remnant Strings to Castle Hall. Best known as lead singer of bombastic troubadours Bellowhead, Jon has also developed his own songwriting through the albums Songs From the Floodplain and Afterglow which focus on stories from a post-oil world where folk arts thrive. Usually touring the project with the 11-piece Jon Boden and the Remnant Kings, this smaller line-up offers a more intimate version of the material. Expect music from Jon’s solo albums and across his career including Bellowhead, Spiers and Boden, and Folk Song a Day. Tickets are £12.50.

Then in June, the hugely influential and popular Fairport Convention are set to visit the town. Visit for more information about both gigs.
