Sam Sweeney & Louis Campbell

Folk Weekend 2023

English folk fiddle player Sam Sweeney and guitarist Louis Campbell join forces for the first time as a duo, launching an EP which takes influence from traditional English repertoire whilst exploring a more cerebral soundscape.

Sam Sweeney is a veteran of the mighty Bellowhead, former and inaugural artistic director of the National Youth Folk Ensemble, founder member of the acclaimed instrumental trio Leveret, and “one of the defining English fiddle players of his generation” (Mark Radcliffe) at the forefront of the revival in English traditional music.

After meeting talented guitarist Louis Campbell as a member of the NYFE when he was just sixteen, Sam invited him to join his band to record Unearth Repeat a few years later. Louis’ electric guitar playing took Sam’s latest album Escape That into new alt pop sonic realms and this year they are releasing a duo EP exploring a more cerebral soundscape, taking influence from traditional English repertoire.

Join them for one of only two launch gigs for their EP.

This performance will last approximately 70 minutes without an interval.
