BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards 2019 – Nominated Musician Of The Year

Following on from the critical acclaim of The Unfinished Violin, Sam Sweeney will be releasing a new album in May 2020 with an accompanying tour.

Sam is a veteran of the mighty Bellowhead, former artistic director of the National Folk Youth Ensemble, founder member of the acclaimed instrumental trio Leveret, and a superb instrumentalist at the forefront of the revival in English traditional music.

“The fiddler with the Midas touch… an English equivalent of the great Irish fiddle player Martin Hayes.” **** The Guardian

“Sweeney’s playing is unearthly at times: the singular focus of this set and the level of its performance makes this an outstanding and deeply moving experience.” ***** – Songlines
