Jon Boden “Moths in the Gaslight” – Listen

Jon Boden is the ex lead singer of folk legends (we can safely say that now they’ve disbanded) Bellowhead and he’s just announced a new album “Afterglow” which will be released on October 6th on Hudson Records.  It will be his first album proper since disbanding the band and a companion release to his 2009 release ‘Songs From The Floodplain’ “imagining a near-future world where the luxuries and comfort of 21st century life have become scarce, and a harder, simpler existence now prevails.” Boden will curate and perform at this year’s Cambridge Folk Festival which kicks off tomorrow, or you can catch him in November on tour – dates are below.
