Passing Clouds & The Nest Collective presents an intimate Glastonbury Festival Warm-Up show with folk troubadour Sam Lee & Friends
About Sam Lee:
Mercury Prize nominated Folk singer, song collector, promoter (of BBC award winning Nest Collective) radio host, TV personality, teacher and animateur, Sam's two critically acclaimed albums place songs he has collected first hand from the Gypsy Traveller Community at their heart with inventive arrangements bringing these ancient songs to life for the 21st Century.
The Live band 'Sam Lee & Friends' perform unconventional and contemporary interpretations challenging all preconceptions of what ‘traditional folk’ should sound like. We look forward to welcoming some new musicians into the ensemble ahead of their upcoming show at Glastonbury Festival
Sam will perform two 45 minute sets downstairs from 8pm. Perfect chance to catch this rising star in the relaxed atmosphere of Passing Clouds!
