Having already recorded and produced over 10 acclaimed records, had multiple live sessions and airplay on BBC Radio 2 and 3, and his music regularly featured on Sky Arts and Sky Sports, it’s hard to believe that 24-year-old Cornwall-based folk singer, producer and multi-instrumentalist Sam Kelly has only been performing live for 4 years.

An awe and passion for Celtic music, coupled with a love for the heavy riffs of classic rock and blues, and a voice described by Mike Harding as ‘one of my favourite voices ever' has led Sam on to produce some of the most exciting music on the British folk scene in recent years.

With an intoxicating mix of youthful exuberance and instrumental virtuosity, Sam Kelly & The Lost Boys breathe new life into traditional music, letting it rub shoulders with contemporary originals and even the occasional surprise rock cover.

Sam Kelly and the Lost Boys

Sam Kelly and the Lost Boys appearing at this event

Sam Kelly is a BBC Radio 2 Folk Award winning Cornwall-based singer, song-writer, producer, and multi-instrumentalist. As a young child, Sam spent many a night enraptured, listening to his Irish grandfather tell folk tales, sing folk songs, and play folk tunes on his melodeon. Having caught the bug, Sam has dedicated his life to rediscovering and renewing the sounds of his Gaelic heritage, and creating exciting new music that transcends the boundaries of traditional and popular music. Already known for touring as a trio with Jamie Francis (banjo) and Evan Carson (percussion), Sam now also has a six-piece band; The Lost Boys, to help his songs reach their full potential. Joining Sam, Jamie and Evan are Ciaran on fiddle and guitar, Graham on cello, and the exceptional Toby Shaer (John McCusker band, Heidi Talbot band) on flutes, whistles, and cittern. Expect to hear haunting harmonies, soaring tunes and melodies, and instrumental performances of the highest calibre, all led by Sam´s expert vocals. You´ll be sure to leave a gig with your feet tapping and face beaming!
