“From the outside, when listening to the music of Blair Dunlop, you get the impression that though he’s something of a natural talent he continues to work hard to progress both his songwriting and musicianship…. you can hear the folk heritage coursing through his veins as well as the originality he brings to the genre.”  Songwriting Magazine 2021
 
For a man still in his twenties whose debut album Blight & Blossom, won the coveted Horizon Award at the 2013 BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards, whose 2010 debut EP is now a collector’s item, and who was declared the “vital bridge between Brit folk's first and latest flowerings” by Q Magazine, one might think it easy to rest on the laurels of an already successful career but that’s certainly not the case; constantly searching for new sounds and techniques, BLAIR DUNLOP’s new music is already sounding unlike any of his previous releases.
 
“I finally feel established enough to not need to talk about ‘folk references’ or ‘Americana references’, but to just write beautiful songs. Back to basics and simple presentation of melody matched with intensity of lyric will be the way forward for the forthcoming EP.”
 
To support the new release Blair will tour extensively throughout March and April 2021 in the format that his fans love him best: one man and one guitar!  Intimate selected venues have been chosen to allow the simplicity and sincerity of Blair’s songs and spellbinding live performances connect with his audience in the way Blair does best. See you there!
 
 
Adoration of Blair’s songwriting are to be found far and wide:
 
Blair is a true artist in his prime, as is wholly evident on this beautiful record. He has it all; a wry turn of phrase in his words, barbed & moving within a second, seriously demonic guitar skills that belie his youthful looks (curses under breath) & a voice like some sort of melancholy angel. But most of all you will hear just great songs. It’s been my honour to help him realise these sonic diamonds; I believe the world is his for the plundering”Ed Harcourt

    Alternative Folk

    Blair Dunlop will tour selected venues for a series of intimate solo shows in April 2019.  Building on the successes of the recent album ‘Notes From and Island’ and a full band tour late in 2018 Blair launches into 2019 with shows in Canada and Germany leading to his spring U.K.tour.  Following this Blair will be appearing at a bucket load of festivals in 2019…Happy days!

    From the start, Blair Dunlop’s albums have enjoyed critical acclaim, with each one expanding his musical horizons, his audience and his prodigious songwriting gifts. Now, with the release of his fourth album, Notes From An Island, it’s obvious that he remains consumed by the urge to make music. "With every record I’m getting closer to what I want to achieve and I think this is comfortably my best album to date."

    Coming from a man still in his mid-20s, whose debut album, Blight & Blossom, won the coveted Horizon Award at the 2013 BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards, whose 2010 debut EP is now a collector’s item and who was declared the “vital bridge between Brit folk's first and latest flowerings” by Q magazine, these are strong sentiments indeed.
