Bellowhead session (info from radio 2 web page)

First broadcast: Wednesday 02 January 2013
Mark Radcliffe presents the first edition of his brand new folk show, live from Salford Quays.

To usher in the new programme and the new year, Mark is joined in the studio by the 11-piece folk phenomenon Bellowhead,
who will perfotracks from their latest album Broadside.

Mark Radcliffe welcomes the band to the BBC's Salford studios for this, the first edition of Radio 2's new Folk Show.
The weekly programme will see lifelong folk fan Mark explore the wide and wonderful range
of traditional and contemporary folk and acoustic music from around the UK and the world,
with regular interviews and live sessions from folk's finest performers.

Virtuosic, energetic and thrilling, Bellowhead's remarkable albums and live performances have captured
the imagination of folk fans old and new. The band formed in 2004 when duo Spiers & Boden decided to revisit
the concept of big band folk music and invited jazz and fellow folk musicians to form a group that, for many,
has recast English traditional music in an exciting new light and significantly broadened its appeal.

Bellowhead's 2010 album, Hedonism, was recorded at Abbey Road studios and produced
by the renowned rock and roots producer John Leckie.
The record went silver, selling more than 60,000 copies, a remarkable achievement
for an independently released British folk album. The band's 2012 follow-up,
Broadside, entered the UK album chart in the Top 20, and earned the band two nominations in this year's BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards.

An exhilarating and theatrical live band, Bellowhead have performed at the BBC Proms,
Radio 2's 2Day and Live in Hyde Park events, and headlined festivals across the country.
They have been the subject of television specials and are artists in residence at London's Southbank Centre.
