Well what a year! Lockdown, distancing blah blah blah!!
A lot of positives on planet Bluebyrd though!
2020 was a year of nominations. It was great to be part of Radio Wigwam's online gala night where we were in the company of some amazing international artists as we were nominated for
'Best Folk/Acoustic Act' - a great evening!
What a shame Black Country Music Awards was postponed. We had got our tuxedos at the ready for an evening that saw us nominated in four categories, including 'Best New Artist/Band' 'Best Live Act'
'Best Folk/Cool Vibe Act' 'Best Song - Song for the Duped'
Let’s hope BCMA can happen soon.
Who'd have thought that a Bluebyrd song would make it into Amazon top 40 Songs? Chris's duet with International Tenor Thomas Cameron saw 'I Will Be With You' get to #39 and #1 in The Broadway Charts. What a moment!
Lockdown has seen no let up in Radio Coverage. Bluebyrd have been played on over 35 local and national radio stations including the BBC, Blues and Roots Radio, Stafford FM, Brum Radio, Northern Quarter Radio, Cambridge FM, Deal Radio, and internationally renowned shows such as The Readifolk Radio Show, Acoustic Routes, Strummers and Dreamers, The Invisible Folk Club and Classic Folk.
We've also managed to record a special stripped down version of our debut album Uneven Ground called 'Uneven and Unplugged'. We love it! We’re sure you will! If you haven’t got it already click below to get your own copy, or head over to our 'Merch' page to order your copy. For those in our FB group, it’s absolutely free.
There’s been no letting up on the writing and recording front. Chris has been busy writing and by the magic of the internet and prayers for faster broadband, we’ve been able to record a good few brand new songs! We’re excited! We can wait to share them with you!
We’ve been rehearsing, albeit 'virtually' and are up and ready for gigs as soon as we’re all allowed out. WE CAN'T WAIT!
