Blair Dunlop

Blair Dunlop is a captivating vocalist, phenomenal guitarist and writer of songs of the deepest lyrical and musical maturity. He scooped the prestigious Horizon Award at the 2013 BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards. Richard Thompson was so impressed with Dunlop that he gave him a previously unrecorded composition – Seven Brothers – for inclusion on his debut. Blair has recently been in the studio with producer and collaborator Ed Harcourt (Sophie Ellis-Bextor, Paloma Faith, Marianne Faithfull, the Libertines) working on his new album, scheduled for release in early 2018.
