With a band the size of Bellowhead you can only expect some crazy ideas to emerge whilst touring together on a bus. So they have settled on video recording a song a day…not quite like Jon Boden’s Folk Song a Day…far from it, as you’ll see below! They are open to suggestions so you can tweet them any ideas / things you’d like them to attempt…within reason! Tweet’em ere!
Their latest efforts:
On The Bus!
Day One: Ipswich
Day Two: Brighton
Day Three: Bilston (with special appearance from John Leckie)
Most tickets for their tour are now sold out but some tickets remain for a few venues. Click here for details.
