warpy Bellowhead Stupendous at Saltaire (8) RE: Bellowhead Stupendous at Saltaire 02 Nov 08

It was a great gig .The arrangements get better and better and it was good to hear each band member individualy.We like the chacophany but great to be able to pick out each instrument as well.
If they want to go mainstream I think they will need to get out of the usual safe folk venues. The audience age was still 40 plus ish apart from a few teenagers six of whom I brought .Easily spotted with halloween light up horns.Their younger fan club I think largely consists of the teeneage kids of forty something folk fans like me.
The members of Bellowhead I bet all have morgages and kids so are unlikely to do the risky gigs that make no money but put you into the mainstream. The sort of gig that has standing in a city hall for 1500. Would they sell that type of venue out I wonder. Great if they could but i'm not sure they ever will.
