Mercury Music Prize nominee Sam Lee is a traditional song collector and singer. His second album ‘The Fade In Time’ was released this year to great acclaim and features his unique and inventive interpretations of the ancient songs of gypsy traveller singers. Sam Lee and his band comprise cellist Francesca Ter-Berg, trumpeter Steve Chadwick, violinist Flora Curzon, percussionist Josh Green and koto player Jonah Brody.  “This Mercury prize nominee continues to shake up the folk scene with this second album packed with drama and surprise. Sam Lee again concentrates on traditional songs he learned from Gypsy travellers; they are performed in no-nonsense, almost crooned style, but with startlingly original settings…Surely one of the albums of the year.”  (Robin Denselow, 5*, The Guardian, March 13, 2015 (UK)
