Jon Boden

Jon is nterested in the role folk music and the folk arts might take in a post-oil society (and what role they might take in preparing us for that transition.) He works mainly with traditional material but took time out to write Songs from the Floodplain (Navigator Records 2009) – a song cycle imagining a post-oil rural community. He performs the material from this album (along with a variety of musical future-relics) with his band The Remnant Kings, and two wax-cylinder phonograph machines. Jon performed at the first Uncivilisation festival.
