Sam Carter

Silver Horizon Album Launch

Sam Carter, a Midlands-born guitarist and songwriter who has earned a reputation for vivid, heartfelt songwriting and captivating live performances, makes a welcome return to Kings Place.


Over his fifteen-year career, Sam Carter has appeared on national TV, including Later… with Jools Holland, won a BBC Folk Award, and toured the world, sharing stages with folk’s leading lights, including Richard Thompson, Eliza Carthy, Martin Simpson and Bella Hardy.

Carter released his last studio album, the acclaimed Home Waters (2020), during the pandemic. After touring extensively once the world opened up, he felt called away from the chamber folk of Home Waters. ‘My writing and listening shifted, probably due to the isolation’, explains Sam. ‘Storytelling gave way to something more impressionistic and abstract. I found hope and solace in escapism.’

This autumn, Sam Carter returns to tour his latest album, Silver Horizon, launching at Kings Place. Recorded by renowned producer Andy Bell at the remote Red Kite Studios in Wales, Silver Horizon features 11 hook-driven indie folk songs set in a captivating, dream-like sound world. Guitarist Stuart McCallum (The Breath) weaves epic reverb-drenched soundscapes around many songs. A seamless blend of the intimate and ethereal makes Silver Horizon the most remarkable album of Carter’s career.

This event will last approximately 75 minutes, without an interval
