Blair Dunlop

Sunday 24th July 2016

Blair Dunlop's achingly beautiful Blight & Blossom may be one of the most memorable and melodic debut albums of recent years, but what has really marked him out from his peers is his ability to craft meaningful songs that connect with everyone who claps ears on them on a deeply emotional level that belies his age.

Still only 22, few people in the music world who had been paying attention were surprised when he scooped the prestigious Horizon Award at the 2013 BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards, and although Blight & Blossom attracted a rapturous reception from the critics and received regular airings from a host of stations including BBC Radio 2 and 6 Music upon its release in August 2012, Dunlop took it all in his stride and set off on his travels, playing everywhere from major festivals to intimate front rooms... wherever and whenever he found an audience willing to listen.

2014 saw the launch of Blair’s eagerly awaited second album House of Jacks’. His latest album, Gilded, is out now.
