Date: Friday 13th April 2018
Since being named Best Newcomer at the 2010 BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards Sam Carter has been stirring audiences from Camden to Canada, via an attention grabbing appearance on Later… with Jools Holland and a dreams-really-do-come-true performance in a specially assembled band to back Richard Thompson at Shrewsbury Folk Festival.
Described as ‘the finest English-style finger-picking guitarist of his generation’ by Bellowhead’s Jon Boden, Sam has toured the world, equally happy to perform intimate solo shows on acoustic guitar, on electric with a full band, or to collaborate with other artists.
In 2014, Sam teamed with Jim Moray to form False Lights, a band with the stated aim of updating the template of folk rock and making a joyful racket. Their 2016 BBC Radio 2 Folk Award nominated album Salvor, was praised from all corners – proving that people really were ready for traditional English songs played in a style that owed as much to Radiohead as it did to Fairport Convention.
Spring 2018 sees Sam embark on a solo tour playing songs from his acclaimed third studio album, How The City Sings.
‘Sam Carter is a brilliant guitarist and singer who combines the observational with social comment and personal reflection’ Songlines
