Music Programme 2019
Songwriter and guitarist Blair Dunlop (born in 1992) has released three albums and two EPs since 2011, and he is acclaimed as one of the most interesting young musicians on the British folk scene. He has won several prizes, among them the Horizon Award 2013 at BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards. Musical talent is in Blair Dunlop’s genes. He is the son of Ashley Hutchings, founder member of Fairport Convention, Steeley Span and The Albion Band. Blair Dunlop has played with the latter for some years. Blair Dunlop’s latest album, Notes From An Island (2018), his most accomplished so far, according to one British critic, weaves such Brexit topics as borders and national isolation into the songs. Guitar Magazine has this to say about Blair Dunlop: “He could help bring the genre to the forefront of the British music scene.” His only Danish festival appearance in 2019.e med til at bringe genren frem i den forreste del af den britiske musikscene.” Eneste danske festivalkoncert i 2019.
