WHAT’S ON OCTOBER: Blair Dunlop at The Hug and Pint
Blair Dunlop, the award-winning British singer, songwriter and guitarist, has now released 3 albums 2 EP’s and toured widely around the globe. All of this in a short 4-year career is astounding alone but what sets Blair apart from his peers is the lyrical and musical maturity with which he writes.
His third album ‘Gilded’ was released in May 2016 on his own label – Gilded Wings – and was widely acclaimed gaining BBC Radio 2 Playlist status for the two single releases (‘The Egoist’ and ‘356’) both of which were remixed by Ed Harcourt. Prior to this Blair released his acclaimed album ‘House Of Jacks’ in mid 2014 which lived up to the promise of his 2012 debut ‘Blight and Blossom’ (the quality of which contributed to his winning the BBC Radio 2 Horizon Award).
Blair has now cemented his place as one of Britain’s most exciting talents to come from the folk scene and comes to Glasgow on 11th October 2018 at the Hug and Pint 171 Great Western Rd, Glasgow G4 9AW.
