BLAIR DUNLOP has been hailed as one of the UK's most accomplished songwriters since he burst into the folk scene with his debut Blight & Blossom (2012). BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards followed along with critical acclaim. In 2016 Blair released on his own label (Gilded Wings) and received wider acclaim and BBC Radio 2 playlisting for singled ‘The Egoist’ and ‘356’.

Appearances at Glastonbury and the major Folk Festivals followed, along with breakthrough tours of Australia; and Blair is now firmly established as a household name amongst respected British songwriters. 


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

 

“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

    Blair Dunlop

    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.

    Blair is a true artist in his prime…. 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.“ - Ed Harcourt
