Project Blackbird at Barefoot Festival™ 2022

Project Blackbird - Project Blackbird is a collective of UK-based musicians, including multi-instrumentalist Jon Read, a former trumpet player for The Specials who has also toured with The Dandy Warhols.

Their debut album Endurance is a compelling soundscape that defies the constraints of genre or convention. Instrumentals, spoken word, and lyrical eloquence conspire to create a cinematic listening experience – hypnotic songcraft that cuts to the core of contemporary humanity and “connection”. As one fan suggests, “Imagine a party at Ronnie Scott’s where Sade, Björk, Jeff Beck, and David Byrne meet Portishead and then go for a late night curry to exchange ideas…sublime“.
