Folk guitarist and vocalist Sam Carter performs some of his works including 'Yellow Sign' and 'Dreams are Made of Money' live on In Tune ahead of his concert at Kings Place, London.

Since winning Best Newcomer at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards in 2010, midlands-born singer, guitarist and songwriter Sam Carter has been more in demand than ever. From performances at the Royal Festival Hall for Richard Thompson’s Meltdown to sharing the stage with the great Nic Jones alongside Chris Wood, Martin Simpson and Jon Boden at Sidmouth Folk Week, Sam continues to impress audiences and fellow artists alike.

Armed with a ‘killer voice’ (Nitin Sawhney) and the ability to play his guitar ‘like a harp’ (Time Out), as well as an unerring ability to put his personal experiences into a wider perspective, the east London-based songsmith made his mark with his debut album ‘Keepsakes’ released August 2009. 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, Riz MC (actor Riz Ahmed), Nathan ‘Flutebox’ Lee and the London Philharmonic Orchestra.

More recently Sam has participated in the British Council’s ‘Shifting Sands’ project, a cross-cultural collaboration between English and Middle Eastern traditional musicians led by Bellowhead trumpeter Andy Mellon. This exciting international initiative has seen the group performing in Kuwait and Bahrain, as well as peformances at the Glasgow Royal Concert Hall at Celtic Connections 2011.
