Since being named Best Newcomer at the 2010 BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards Sam Carter has been stirring audiences from Camden to Canada, via an attention grabbing appearance on ​Later… with Jools Holland and a dreams-really-do-come-true performance in a specially assembled band to back Richard Thompson at Shrewsbury Folk Festival.

Described as ‘the finest English-style finger-picking guitarist of his generation’ by Jon Boden (Remnant Kings, ex-Bellowhead),​ Sam has toured the world, equally happy to perform intimate solo shows on acoustic guitar, on electric with a full band, or to collaborate with other artists.

Sam’s third solo album ​How The City Sings ​was released in April 2016 and​ ​captured this fervently admired singer, songwriter and guitarist at his most passionate and moving,​ ​with​ The Guardian​ calling it a ‘bittersweet electric-folk concept album’ in their glowing 4-star ​review​.
