Bellowhead were an English contemporary folk band. The eleven-piece act played traditional dance tunes, folk songs and shanties, with arrangements drawing inspiration from a wide diversity of musical styles and influences. The band included percussion and a four-piece brass section, and was known for its energetic live performances.

All independently successful musicians in their own right, Bellowhead's former bandmembers play more than 20 instruments between them; whilst all performers provided vocals.

Their third album, Hedonism, is the highest selling independently released folk album of all time, having sold over 60,000 copies and earning the band a silver disk.

In June 2015, Bellowhead announced via their website their intention to split following lead singer Jon Boden's intended departure from the band in May 2016.
