Serious Sam Barrett

With support from Plazzy Bag and Johnnie O’Hare (DJ)

Serious Sam Barrett is a hard touring, folk and country singer/songwriter from Yorkshire, playing honest, heartfelt self-penned and traditional songs on 12 string guitar and banjo.

Raised in the Dales village of Addingham, Sam began performing in and around Leeds in 2004, with word spreading further afield with the release of his 2009 debut album Close To Home. Having performed at SXSW in Austin, Texas in 2010, he has toured the US widely, usually in the company of friends and fellow skaters The Pine Hill Haints. Along the way, Sam has shared stages with the likes of Martin Carthy, Dave Burland, Katherine Tickell, Lucero, The Young Un's, Frank Fairfield, Deer Tick and Karine Polwart, and received airplay and praise plaudits from the BBC’s Bob Harris, Marc Riley, Mark Radcliffe and Mike Harding.

“The sustained brilliance of this playing is really something to behold” – Bob Harris, BBC Radio 2

"There's some real swagger to this" – Mark Radcliffe, BBC Radio 2

“Songs that rattle with the ghosts of Appalachian folk, and southern blues, yet sound emphatically English” – Uncut Magazine

“Old before his years country-folk fellow who mixes intricate John Fahey finger-picking with confessional tales of dirty old Leeds” – The Guardian
