SAM LEE AND FRIENDS.
Sam is a young curator of music from the travelling community. His first album ‘Ground of its Own’ was nominated for the 2012 Mercury Music Award which indicates his style of music has a broader appeal than traditional folk. Sam is supported by his band to bring a modern and original accompaniment to Sam’s distinctive baritone voice. Expect to hear jaws harp, Mongolian dulcimer and hand pans in addition to more conventional fiddle and guitars, all connected to fancy electronica. “The rising star of traditional English folksong”. The Daily Telegraph. “One of the most promising folk singers to emerge from the London scene this decade”. The Independent. “An extremely natural and charismatic performer. His modern, often trancelike arrangements of traditional songs never fail to still a room.” Time Out.
