Sam Sweeney Band

  • Level 3 Lounge
 

After embarking on a solo career, releasing his debut solo album The Unfinished Violin on Island Records and touring it to sell-out crowds on the 2019 album launch tour, Sam is releasing his highly anticipated second solo album in Spring 2020. 

Moving on from his five year connection to the First World War, which inspired his first album and captured the nation’s hearts through appearances on Antiques Roadshow and BBC Breakfast, alongside BBC Radio 2, 3, 4 and 6 Music, Sam is making music on his own terms, with three of his favorite musicians, and with a totally fresh approach and a big sound. 

Sam and his new band are putting something into English music that has never been there before.  This album has the swagger and groove of traditional English music with the huge sound, flair, energy and festival spirit of bands coming out of the Celtic and Scandinavian music scenes. 

The new album occupies a very different sound to The Unfinished Violin.  Leaving string sections, piano, and harmonium behind, the new band features acoustic and electric guitars and double bass. 

Jack Rutter – guitar (Seth Lakeman, Jackie Oates, Moore Moss Rutter)

Ben Nicholls – double bass (Seth Lakeman, Nadine Shah, Kings Of The South Seas, Wild Rose, The Full English)

Louis Campbell – electric guitar (member of National Youth Folk Ensemble 2016 – 18, BBC Introducing with Big Massive Orchestra, studying guitar at RNCM) 

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.
