Blair Dunlop, the BBC Horizon award-winning British singer, songwriter and guitarist, has now released 4 albums 2 ep’s and toured widely around the globe. What sets Blair apart from his peers is the lyrical and musical maturity with which he writes.
Blair has now cemented his place as one of Britain’s most exciting talents to come from the folk scene. The Guardian stated that the ‘House Of Jacks’ proves Blair is ‘an increasingly adventurous songwriter’, Uncut reviewed it as ‘thoughtful and exploratory’, The Independent on Sunday described it as ‘fluent, lamentory and accomplished’ while Q Magazine wrote that House of Jacks is ‘an exciting glimpse of where traditional folk might go’.
He played GTSF early in his solo career, in 2012, and again as a late entry to the 2018 festival when a slot became free after a late but unavoidable cancellation - so it's great to see him back in 2020.
“The busy crowd…is testament to Dunlop’s talents. He brings an air of tenacity while displaying a fine repertoire of well-crafted songs spanning traditional and contemporary. He’s determinedly taking the traditions of folk in his own direction”
