We’ve been looking forward to this session for some time now. London based artist Sam Brookes is also about to embark on a winter tour with the fabulous Pete Roe, Hot Feet and Emily & The Woods called ‘Because the Night’ which takes place through Decemeber so if you do get a chance to see him live then don’t miss out on this opportunity (dates on flyer below).
Sam’s musical influences are some of our favourite artists including Davy Graham, Bert Jansch, John Renbourn, Nick Drake, Nic Jones, Scott Mathews and Tim Buckley…his delivery and pitch will have you hanging on every note. For a soloist he brings incredible depth to his music which sparkles with a beautiful light recalling the Quiet Revolution..when artists such as Nick Drake played low lit late night venues with a hushed audience sat on the floor. He is quite unlike any other artist I can think of today and this session is just blissful, he’ll always have a special place on Folk Radio UK! His final cover of Nick Drakes ‘Black Eyed Dog’ is brilliant…enjoy!
