Sam Sweeney Band on Sunday 9th May 2021
This event has been rescheduled from the previously listed Thursday 14 May 2020
Sam’s profile has never been higher, carving a unique path and creating a sound in English music. Since his Bellowhead days, Sam has inspired a whole new generation of young folk musicians, as the inaugural Artistic Director of the National Youth Folk Ensemble (2016-19), as well as embarking on his own solo career, releasing a debut solo album The Unfinished Violin on Island Records and touring it to sell-out crowds on the 2019 album launch tour.
Free to fully realise his creative ambition, as well as continuing to demonstrate his remarkable ability to communicate with an audience through his fiddle playing, Sam’s new band are putting something into English music that has never been there before. This album has the swagger and groove of traditional English music with the huge sound, flare, energy and festival spirit of bands coming out of the Celtic and Scandinavian music scenes.
‘The fiddler with the Midas touch… an English equivalent of the great Irish fiddle player Martin Hayes.’ – The Guardian
