Jon Boden is best known as the lead singer and one of the founding members of folk juggernaut Bellowhead, whilst also fronting his own band, The Remnant Kings. He is also widely respected as a solo performer, songwriter, composer and interpreter of traditional song – not to mention, being one half of the ground-breaking and much loved Spiers & Boden. It is through his solo live shows that he has truly been able to showcase his instrumental talents, on fiddle, guitar and concertina. Playlisted on BBC Radio 2, numerous times, recipient of eleven Radio 2 Folk Awards and two honorary doctorates – he is also the voice of the Mark Radcliffe jingle on BBC Radio 2 and the busker in the Richard Curtis 2013 film “About Time”.
Jon’s new album ‘Last Mile Home’ completes a trilogy of post-climate change albums which started with Songs From the Floodplain in 2009 and followed on with Afterglow in 2017. The final part in the start, Last Mile Home, describes a journey from moor to coast in a landscape empty of human life but overflowing with nature. A meditation on solitude, memory and nature, the album was recorded during the spring/summer of 2020 and is full of the sounds and images of the landscape reclaiming an abandoned World.
Join Jon, the Remnant Strings and Edith the phonograph player to hear Last Mile Home in full, along with some tracks from Floodplain and Afterglow, filmed in the factory where the story first began.
Replay available for 48 hours after the show.
