The eleven-piece band plays traditional dance tunes, folk songs and shanties, with arrangements drawing inspiration from a wide diversity of musical styles and influences. The band includes percussion and a four-piece brass section, and is known for its energetic live performances. Bellowhead's musicians play more than 20 instruments between them with all members providing vocals.

Their third album, Hedonism, went silver (selling over 60,000 copies) and is the highest selling independently released folk album of all time.

In June 2015, Bellowhead announced via their website that they would split up following lead singer Jon Boden's departure from the band in May 2016.
