Julie Mclelland & The Band From County Hell are making a very welcome return to Blackfriars.  If ever there was a band to lift the spirits and give you the 'feel good factor' then it is this unique and original Lincolnshire celtic folk rock unit.  
Returning to Blackfriars with a full line up to include guitar, bass, drums, whistle, mandolin, banjo, fiddle and piano the band will take you on a journey with their original songs, humour and some traditional tunes performed in their own style.

The Band From County Hell are an original celtic folk band with 7 critically acclaimed albums, published works with Cherry Red Records and over 2000 live performances as part of their history.  Live gigs have seen them play from the smallest of venues to outside arenas and most notably their own show at The London Palladium. They have appeared with bands such as The Levellers, The Stranglers, UB40 and have supported Stiff Little Fingers, Hayseed Dixie, The Beat and most recently, New Model Army on national tour dates. Major festivals appearances include Wychwood Festival, Rhythm Festival, Weyfest, The Bearded Theory Festival, Galtres, The Acoustic Festival of Great Britain and The Great British Folk Festival, amongst many others.
In 2017 BFCH won the public vote at The Great British Folk Festival for the best ‘new act’ which saw them play on the main stage to a capacity crowd.
In 2019 BFCH were invited to headline Stramash as part of The Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
