Never miss another 'Sam Lee' show
See all events for Brighton Festival
Brighton Festival: Sam Lee + Thomas McCarthy
Sam Lee is taking Folk back to its roots, and is redefining contemporary folksong in the process.
Both a singer and a collector of songs, he has spent years searching the country for the Roma, Gypsy and Traveller communities, who have passed their songs down the generations for centuries – and gathered the songs that they have sung for him. This collection formed the basis for his Mercury Music Prize- nominated debut album Ground of Its Own last year.
Follow him on a journey through the ancient songs of the British Isles and prepare to challenge your preconceptions of what ‘traditional folk’ should sound like.
Sam Lee is a folk singer, promoter and animateur. A naturally gifted voice, Sam is fast becoming accepted as a new pioneer, defining the sound, sight and texture of contemporary folksong. With his live band, Sam Lee and Friends, he carves a new acoustic with homemade and mongrelised instrumentation using unconventional and contemporary arrangements that challenging preconceptions of what 'traditional folk' should sound like.
