Beschrijving Blowzabella is a band that produces an inimitable, driving drone-based sound played with a fabulous sense of melody, rhythmic expertise and sheer feeling. They have played everywhere from the main stage at Glastonbury Festival to the outer reaches of Brazil and West Africa.
The excellent musicians of Blowzabella compose their own music which is influenced by British and European traditional dance music. Many bands across Europe who experiment with the boundaries of folk music cite Blowzabella as a major influence.
The latest album Strange News (2013) features four newly interpreted english folk songs. Partly a return of the band to its roots in traditional dance music, their new songs also imply a modern approach to those.
