Sunday Jan 17th   SAM CARTER and EWAN McLENNAN   £8adv/£9

Sam Carter is a precocious young singer and guitarist from Rutland, East Midlands. Since moving to London in 2004 Sam has studied guitar with Martin Simpson and supported Bellowhead on tour, which led Bellowhead lead singer Jon Boden to hail him as 'the finest English-style finger-picking guitarist of his generation'.
In addition to this, Sam is a former Emerging Artist In Residence at the Southbank Centre, where he collaborated with a wealth of talented musicians and artists including Nitin Sawhney and the London Philharmonic Orchestra.
Sam went down exceptionally well when he supported Martin Simpson at TwickFolk in Oct 2008 and has just been accorded a 'Horizon Award' nomination in the 2010 BBC Folk Awards. Sam is an independent artist and has two releases to date, both self-released - Here In The Ground EP (2008) and Keepsakes (2009)

Ewan McLennan grew up in Edinburgh and the influences of Scottish culture and Scottish traditional repertoire are clear within his music today. Hesitantly picking up the guitar Ewan could be heard repetitively playing and keenly admiring the early, more socially-aware songs of the great Bob Dylan. This led, gradually, to a broad exploration of English-language folksong, as well as a fascination in how radical ideas of a social and political nature had been, and could be. expressed through music. Ewan later studied music at Leeds University School of Music where he found himself paying particular attention to the vast repertoire of industrial folksong. Today, Ewan's singing and playing covers the broad range folk music has to offer; from traditional ballads sung unaccompanied, to dance tunes or melancholic airs arranged for the guitar, and his own contemporary songwriting, following firmly in the folk tradition. His first CD has been well received and been played on Mike Harding's Radio 2 show.
