Folk singers are interested in honouring the music, but also in taking it forward, and that’s just what Sam Lee is doing.

He’s perhaps best-known for the award-winning The Magpie’s Nest folk night in London, now called ‘The Nest Collective.’

But it’s through his work as a performer that I’ve become really interested in what he’s doing with Folk.

2012 will see the release of a Sam Lee album called ‘Ground Of Its Own.’


It’s been a long time in the making, and has now been mixed by John Wood, who knows a thing or two about folk singers having worked with Sandy Denny during his illustrious career as producer and engineer.

Though it’s not commerically available yet, you can hear Sam’s album of folk tunes via Soundcloud.

To my ears, he’s an intruiging, original talent.

He’s also playing a few ‘live’ dates starting in a few weeks time, and I would recommend you check him out if you get the chance.

As you will see, Sam’s website is a treasure trove of information and content about his commitment to Folk, so dive in.

Once I hear when the album is ‘in the shops,’ I’ll tweet and post with the details.
