Colston Hall New Year's Eve Party: Bellowhead + Spiro + Brass Roots
On 31st December the band continue their custom of seeing in the New Year in riotous style with end of year revelry at Colston Hall in Bristol.
On 1st December 2013, the band will be releasing a festive Christmas single, ‘Christmas Bells / Jingle Bells', complete with a characteristic Bellowhead twist.
This event takes place at Colston Hall, which has achieved Bronze Status for disabled access from Attitude Is Everything.
Since their formation in 2004 Bellowhead have occupied a unique place in Britain's musical landscape. Wild, joyous, perverse, bold, crazy, full-blooded, intricate, fearless, funny, epic and mostly BIG, the mighty 11-piece Bellowhead blend folk, jazz, classical, disco and world music influences with English music and cabaret to stunning effect.
Playing more than 20 instruments between them with six vocalists, they deliver a heady brew that defies categorisation and have placed themselves at the cutting edge of the contemporary music scene while harnessing all the power and mystery of ancient English and European musical traditions.
