Hailed as one of the best artists on the UK roots circuit today, Blair Dunlop is live at The Flowerpot next week.

An award-winning British singer, songwriter and guitarist, Blair and his band will be performing songs from his acclaimed albums, including his most recent release, Gilded,

A former winner of the BBC Radio 2 Horizon Award, which cemented his place as one of the most exciting talents on the British folk scene, Blair is excited about the new record.

He said: “I can’t wait to tour it, the songs are the usual narrative on society and the sound is more cohesive.

“The tour will bring new songs and old favourites together at some of my favourite venues and I can’t wait to see the reaction.

“The new album is a work I am already incredibly proud of, I feel like I have finally understood my many influences and started to define my own sound and style.”

His Flowerpot gig is on Thursday, May 26 and doors open 8pm.

Entry is £10 and tickets are also available in advance from the venue or Raw Promotions at www.rawpromo.co.uk
