Arts in Action, in association with the James Hardiman Library, welcomes the Mercury Prize nominated English folk singer and song collector, Sam Lee, to give an illustrated lecture & performance at NUI Galway.

Since bursting on to the folk scene, Londoner Sam Lee has blazed a dizzying trail as a singer and song collector. With a rich and resonant voice, Sam is also the founder and driving force behind the eclectic, award-winning folk club The Nest Collective, which has brought traditional music to new stages and audiences.

Sam’s debut album, ‘Ground of its Own’ was conceived after winning the prestigious Arts Foundation Prize in 2011 and nominated for the 2012 Mercury Music Prize. His second album, ‘The Fade in Time’ (2015) has been equally feted. At the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards 2016, Sam was presented with ‘Best Traditional Song’ for his version of the song ‘Lovely Molly’.
