Sam Lee on ylistetty laulaja ja laulunkerääjä, joka on noussut ainutlaatuiseen asemaan Brittien musiikkikentällä luodessaan uutta suuntaa englantilaiselle folk-musiikille.

Sam Lee oli ehdolla Mercury Music Award -palkinnon saajaksi jo debyyttilevyllään Ground of its Own (2012). Hänen toinen albuminsa The Fade in Time (2015) voitti puolestaan Songlines Music Award -palkinnon Euroopan kategoriassa. Vuonna 2017 ohjaaja Guy Ritchie valitsi Leen säveltämään tunnuskappaleen ‘The Devil and The Huntsman’ Hollywood-seikkailuelokuvaansa King Arthur: Legend of the Sword.

Sam Leen uusin levy ‘Old Wow’ (2020), jonka on tuottanut Barnard Butler (Suede, The Verve), tuo kitaran ja sähkökitaran ensimmäistä kertaa mukaan Leen monipuoliseen folk-musiikkikeitokseen. Levyn kantavana teemana on rakastava ja suojeleva suhde luontoon.

Tapahtuma on osa Etnosoi!-festivaalia.

Mikäli tapahtuma ei ole loppuunmyyty, keikalle myydään opiskelijalippuja ovelta hintaan 20 € / kpl. Ovilipunmyynti aloitetaan keikkapäivänä klo 18. Konsertti on ikärajaton.

“Sam Lee’s Old Wow is a spine-tingling collection of traditional songs, artfully reinterpreted for contemporary ears and concerns. It is folk music that demands to be heard in the 21st century.”

Sam Lee plays a unique role in the British music scene. A highly inventive and original singer, folk song interpreter, a passionate conservationist, committed song collector and a successful creator of live events. With his latest album, Old Wow, he’s summonsed up a truly compelling and emotional album that takes his work to yet another level.

Lee’s debut folk album, Ground of its Own was shortlisted for the 2012 Mercury Music Award. His second album The Fade in Time won the Songlines Music Awards in the Europe category. In 2017, director Guy Ritchie chose him to write the lead song ‘The Devil and The Huntsman’ for his epic Hollywood fantasy King Arthur: Legend of the Sword.

Sam Lee’s newest album ‘Old Wow’ (2020), produced by Barnard Butler, introduces a dramatic change of musical direction where, for the first time, Sam includes the instrument most notably absent from his recording career, the guitar and electric guitar. With Old Wow he has re-worked traditional songs to create what he describes as “a timeless bridge, music that can be looking both backward and forwards, and a soulful accompaniment to an urgent need to fall back in love with nature if we are to know how to protect it”.

If the event is not sold out, there will be student tickets available at the door for 20 € each (student tickets not sold online). Door ticket sales will begin at 6 pm on the day of the show.
