Folk talent with universal appeal...
Blair Dunlop

Blair Dunlop first emerged from the folk scene, performing material steeped in a sense of tradition.

Though he will never lose that awareness of history, the songwriter has gradually evolved, growing to take ownership of a quite distinct area.

New single 'Fifty Shades Of Blue' arrives on April 13th, and it's a neat fusion of tradition and individuality. The arrangement nods towards the folk scene, with a deft acoustic guitar sitting alongside lush strings and even a burst of organ.

The song, though, is pure Blair Dunlop. At ease with himself, the gentle yet powerful delivery has a warm, delicate embrace.

Check it out now.
