Sam Lee & Friends – The Fade In Time
London Folk artist Sam Lee returns with ‘The Fade In Time’, a follow up to 2012’s Ground Of Its Own – which was nominated for the Mercury Music Prize. Sam takes a 21st Century view on Folk traditions from the UK and around the world – re-imagining the British folk tradition through the eyes of the wider world.
The music takes a path from Gypsy Traveller songs, through Japanese court music to wedding marches from Tajikistan – a truly global journey, with English folk song at its heart. Sam’s 5 piece band recorded the album with Arthur Jeffes (of Penguin Cafe Orchestra) and Jamie Orchard-Lisle.
Sam has said about the new album “It’s been an incredible learning journey making it along with ‘The Friends’; joyful, challenging, but always a privilege and the songs are, in my opinion, fresh, unique and unlike any other traditional folk album. I can’t wait for you all to hear it.”
