The BKA are thrilled to report that one of our Kodály Spring Course 2016 Performers has been nominated for two awards at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards 2016.
Sam Lee is no stranger to award nominations. His debut album Ground of its Own was shortlisted for the Mercury Prize for Album of the Year in 2012.
…a beautiful voice: a rich, sweet, rousing baritone with a soft grain and a tough edge that does justice to the sorrow and graft in these ballads. Crucially he makes the songs his own, delivering Scots, Welsh and Irish lyrics with straight-up English diction and subtly original inflections… The Guardian
The 2016 BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards see him nominated in two categories. Best Folk Singer and Best Traditional Track for Lovely Molly. He will also be performing at the awards ceremony at the Royal Albert Hall.
Congratulations Sam! We can’t wait to meet you and your songs on Tuesday 29th March.
If you would like to come and see Sam you can book a residential or day place at the Spring Course here.
