Former Bellowhead frontman, Jon Boden has become the ‘stand out performer of his generation’, according to The Guardian anyway. Jon is a traditional folk artist, but one whose repertoire extends far beyond the familiar boundaries of the genre. He visits Lyme with the Remnant Strings for a very special show. The Remnant Strings features Jon Boden (fiddle, guitars, concertina, stomp-box), Helen Bell (viola), Morven Bryce (violin) and Lucy Revis (cello).

He is best known as the lead singer and main arranger of the progressive folk juggernaut Bellowhead. After twelve years, a quarter of a million album sales, seven singles on the Radio 2 playlist and selling out hundreds of venues throughout the land and beyond, including notably the Royal Albert Hall, Jon announced in 2015 that he wanted to move on. The rest of the band decided not to continue without him. Bellowhead played their final gig on May 1st 2016.
