Blowzabella was formed in Whitechapel, east London in 1978 by Bill O'Toole (bagpipes, flutes) from Sydney and Jon Swayne (bagpipes, flutes) from Glastonbury, both students of musical instrument making at the London College of Furniture in London. The band's name was taken from an English jig (and bawdy drinking song), "Blowzabella My Bouncing Doxie", popular in the late 17th century and early 18th century. In 1984 the band recorded album Tam Lin with Frankie Armstrong and Brian Pearson, and the album Bobbityshooty with Dave Armitage, Paul James, Dave Roberts, Dave Shepherd, Cliff Stapleton and Jon Swayne.

Blowzabella: English band who play bagpipes, hurdy-gurdy and an array of acoustic instruments to produce a driving, drone-based sound influenced by British and European traditional dance music. Many of their tunes have become standards in the modern folk repertoire. Bands who experiment with the boundaries of folk music often cite Blowzabella as a major influence.
