Blair Dunlop Notes From An Island CD
The award-winning British singer, songwriter and guitarist draws talents from his rich folk heritage (son of folkrock musician Ashley Hutchings, formerly a member of Fairport Convention) while developing his own guitar driven modern folk style.
This album comes as a result of collaborations with Ed Harcourt (Mercury Award Nominee 2001, producer for Sophie Ellis Bextor, Marianne Faithfull), Dave Burn (ahab), Gita Langley (Dirty Pretty Strings, Lock) and Brooke Sharkey.
After a challenging personal time of the break-up of a relationship, Blair sets the album in the context of political isolation and a pre- Brexit Britain, reflecting on the irrelevance of borders in an interactive and socially amorphous world.
This is Blair's most mature work to date; skilfully acknowledging his folk roots and heritage but also creating sharp edged songs.
