The Sam Kelly Trio Tour Dates

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.

Sam's debut EP, entitled 'Your Way Home', was released in March 2013, featuring Beth Porter (Eliza Carthy Band) on cello. This created a buzz of interest in the folk scene for Sam's music, being described by Bright Young Folk as a 'captivating introduction to a name we'll be sure not to forget' and gaining him support slots with the likes of Cara Dillon, Jim Moray and Kathryn Roberts & Sean Lakeman. Sam followed this up with the release of the widely acclaimed 'Spokes' EP.

His love for Irish Gaelic led Sam to explore other largely forgotten languages, particularly Cornish (one of the most endangered languages in the world). He co-formed the Cornwall-based collective The Changing Room along with song-writer Tanya Brittain in 2014. Sam currently appears with several different line-ups - in a duo with Jamie Francis, in a trio with Jamie and Evan Carson, and in a five-piece called Sam Kelly & the Lost Boys which also includes Ciaran Algar and Graham Coe. The 'Lost Boys' album is out now.

'Sam has such a beautiful voice and sings with so much soul. I've seen him perform live a few times and he's amazing' Cara Dillon.

'A captivating performer, Sam Kelly has one of the best young male voices in British acoustic roots music. Seriously...Check him out!' Sean Lakeman.

The Sam Kelly Trio tour dates listed on since May 2014.
