Jon Boden - Afterglow

We are delighted to announce the release of Afterglow, the new album from Jon Boden.

Having sold over a quarter of a million records as lead singer with folk super group Bellowhead, Jon now embarks on a solo career.  Afterglow, performed live November 2017 with his 10 piece band follows on from Boden's 2009 post-apocalyptic concept-album masterpiece ‘Songs From The Floodplain’. Whereas Floodplain was largely rural in setting, Afterglow plunges the listener into the heaving chaos of a dystopian street carnival, an Orwellian mashup of Bonfire Night and Diwali. Through his unique songwriting Boden tells the story of two star-crossed lovers trying to find each other amongst a backdrop of decaying buildings, burning oil drums, home-made fireworks, tribal rioting and Bacchanalian revelry.



The Transports

We are delighted to present a short film we recently made with our friends The Transports, introducing the new production of Peter Bellamy's legendary Folk opera.

At a time when migration makes headlines daily, this tale of past migration shows how little has changed in the global movement of desperate people.

The Transports features members of The Young'uns, Bellowhead, Faustus, Nancy Kerr, Greg Russell and Matthew Crampton, the production is about to embark on a UK Tour and there's only a few tickets left so you best get buying.

The Furrow Collective Wild Hog

We’re proud to begin the Hudson Records journey with one of the UK folk scene’s most remarkable collaborations.

The Furrow Collective is a critically acclaimed English/Scottish quartet consisting of four distinctive and talented performers – Lucy Farrell (fiddle, viola, voice), Rachel Newton (harp, fiddle, voice), Emily Portman (banjo, concertina, voice) and Alasdair Roberts (guitars, voice). The group formed in 2013, drawn together by a shared love of traditional song and balladry and an open, intuitive approach to collaboration. 

Wild Hog is their wonderful follow-up to 2014 debut At Our Next Meeting. Produced by Hudson Records’ own Andy Bell and building on the success of its predecessor, Wild Hog shows a marked development in the group's sound and approach, featuring guest musicians Alex Neilson (Trembling Bells) on drums and Stevie Jones (Sound of Yell) on double bass.

Wild Hog is released 4th November 2016 on CD, LP and DL.
