Folk Award Winner Sam Kelly To Play Newport

BBC Radio 2 Folk Award Winner 2016 Sam Kelly will play Newport’s Lyceum Folk Club next week.

As a young child, the Cornwall-based singer, song-writer, producer, and multi-instrumentalist spent many a night enraptured, listening to his Irish grandfather tell folk tales, sing folk songs, and play folk tunes on his melodeon.

Sam has since dedicated his musical talent to rediscovering and renewing the sounds of his Gaelic heritage, and creating exciting new music that transcends the boundaries of traditional and popular music.

Catch Sam Kelly at The Lyceum Folk Club on September 29. Tickets £8.00 available on the door or from Ruth on 07966 754366
