Mercury Prize nominated folk singer, radio host, TV personality, teacher and animateur, Sam's debut album 'Ground Of Its Own' is comprised of songs learned first hand from the Gypsy Traveller community and won the FRoots album of the year in 2012. The recording is a new musical manifesto, reflecting Sam's unique artistic journey. Winner of the 2011 Arts Foundation Award, he is fast becoming accepted as a new pioneer, defining the sound, sight and texture of folksong today. Likewise, his band performs unconventional and contemporary interpretations challenging all preconceptions of 'traditional folk'.
