Folk has a new urban twist with Midland's based alt-folk duo Bluebyrd. Described as creators of 'tunes that glue themselves into your consciousness', Bluebyrd's songs cover a myriad of themes including errant lovers, refugees, social media and modern-day paranoias; all delivered through alluring melodies that you can't forget.
‘Masters of creating tunes which glue themselves into your consciousness’.
Now becoming festival and venue favourites, Bluebyrd have played Leek Blues and Americana, Audlem, and Alsager festivals and venues such as Claptrap, Percy’s, & Albert’s Shed, with slots at The Robin 2 lined up for 2022. The airwaves have also been alive with the sound of Bluebyrd, with over 160 plays on UK and international radio stations in 2020/21, including a regular slot on BBC WM’s Henry Liston Show. Although they never got their hands around the statuettes (Boo! COVID) Bluebyrd have caught the ears of prestigious award bodies and were nominated in 4 categories at the Black Country Music Awards 2020 including Best New Band and & for Best Acoustic Act in Radio Wigwam’s international Online Radio Awards 2020. Exciting times lie ahead for Bluebyrd as they’re the act chosen as support for Grammy nominated Alvin Youngblood Hart and chart-topping band The Christians at The Robin 2. They have also embarked on a fantastic recording and promotion project with MAS Records and Venombase Studios. It’s all happening!!!
