Blair Dunlop is an outstanding talent emerging on the UK Music scene. He has been able to nod confidently at his heritage – as son of Ashley Hutchings and friend of Richard Thompson (who donates an unheard song to his album!) – whilst stepping boldly forward with a critically acclaimed album of new material. Blight and Blossom (Rooksmere Records RRCD106) has been well received by critics and public alike. This has seen Blair nominated for the BBC Radio 2 Folk Horizon Award.
