Sam Kelly & The Lost Boys
“A captivating performer, Sam Kelly has one of the best young male voices in British acoustic roots music” ~ Sean Lakeman
With over 10 acclaimed albums recorded, multiple live sessions broadcast on BBC radio, and music regularly featured on TV, 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 four years.
And as folk luminaries including Kate Rusby, Seth Lakeman and Cara Dillon line up to wax lyrical about Sam’s live set, it seems fitting that he was awarded the prestigious Horizon Award for emerging artists at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards 2016.
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.
Expect to hear haunting harmonies, soaring tunes and melodies, charming anecdotes and instrumental performances of the highest calibre, all led by Sam’s unmistakable vocals. This is a show not to be missed.
