John Spiers

John Spiers, known better in folk circles as Squeezy, has made a name for himself as one of the leading melodeon players of his generation.  Well known for his long-standing duo partnership with Jon Boden as well as being a key member of Bellowhead, the most successful folk band in recent history.  John was also a member of Eliza Carthy’s band for five years, featuring on her 2002 Mercury nominated album, Anglicana.

Mixing infectious dance tunes with incredibly sensitive and moving slow airs on a mind-boggling range of different squeezeboxes, John’s solo shows are a mixture of traditional material and his own more intricate compositions interspersed with an easy-going, humorous and informative banter.

“A blend of elegant, rhythmic and virtuoso playing and easygoing folk club banter.”
