Bonnie Dobson

Canadian born folk star Bonnie Dobson has lived in the UK since the late 60s and had effectively retired from the music scene (despite an appearance at Jarvis Cocker‘s Meltdown back in 2007) until she began recording a new album for Hornbeam Recordings in the summer of 2013. The album features her boys: top, young UK folk rock musicians and a mix of old and new songs, all newly recorded at the analogue east London studios of producer Sean Read.

Bonnie was a key figure in the 60s folk revival and was involved with the very Greenwich Village scene depicted in the recent Coen Bros film, Inside Llewyn Davis – playing at the Lamplight coffee house and with many of the major figures on the scene. Time magazine bracketed her together with Joan Baez and Judy Collins as the three top female folk singers in America. A new generation of fans including Pulp’s Jarvis Cocker and Microdisney’s Sean O’Hagan, influenced by her late 1960s & 1970s albums, helped raise Bonnie’s profile in the new millennium.

Press quotes: ‘Surely this is the comeback album of the year.’ The Guardian ‘Seventy-four year old Dobson’s comeback sounds, astonishingly, just like the ‘60s Greenwich Village folk rock records that made her name, but better.’ Daily Telegraph ‘… a tender and engaging listen.’ Mojo
