Roots Unearthed | Level 3 Lounge
BLOWZABELLA celebrate 40 years of their inimitable, drone-based wall-of-sound with a new album ‘Two Score’, a new book of tunes ‘More Scores’ and gigs and festivals in the UK and the EU.
BLOWZABELLA is a genuinely unique band that makes an inimitable, driving, drone-based sound played with a fabulous sense of melody, rhythmic expertise and sheer feeling. They compose their own music which is influenced by English and European traditional folk music and song.
Andy Cutting – diatonic button accordion; Jo Freya – vocals, saxophone, clarinet; Paul James – vocals, bagpipes, saxophones; Gregory Jolivet – hurdy-gurdy; David Shepherd – violin; Barn Stradling – bass guitar; Jon Swayne – bagpipes, saxophone.
All the band members compose and many of their tunes are “standards” in the modern British/European folk repertoire and are played by people all over the world. Bands across Europe who experiment with folk music often cite Blowzabella as a major influence. Much loved and respected, there is no one else quite like them.
Band members: Andy Cutting, Jo Freya, Paul James, Gregory Jolivet, David Shepherd, Barn Stadling, Jon Swayne
