Bristol based folk singer, producer and multi-instrumentalist Sam Kelly along with his Lost Boys will be appearing at the Old Bakery in Truro on March 7.

Even though he has recorded and produced over ten records, been the subject of multiple live sessions on BBC Radio 2 and 3 and had his music featured on Sky Arts and Sky Sports, 25-year-old Sam has only been performing on the folk scene for five years.

But in that time he has won himself some high profile fans including Kate Rusby, Seth Lakeman, and Cara Dillon who have all raved about Sam’s live set with his dynamic trio, comprising Jamie Francis on banjo and Evan Carson on drums.

For their first album, The Lost Boys, Sam enlisted the talents of Ciaran Algar on fiddle and Graham Coe on cello to help his songs reach their full potential, which seemed to work - as Sam was awarded the Horizon Award for emerging artists at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards 2016 at The Royal Albert Hall.

The boys then came together with the added talents of Toby Shaer on flutes and whistles and Archie Churchill-Moss on melodeon to record their first album as a full band, which was released in November 2017 to a storm of rave reviews and radio play.

With an at times hilarious mix of youthful exuberance and instrumental virtuosity, The Lost Boys breathe new life into traditional music, letting it rub shoulders with contemporary originals and even the occasional surprise rock cover, and have quickly become one of the most popular festival bands on the UK folk festival scene.

Expect to hear haunting harmonies, soaring tunes and melodies, ridiculous anecdotes and instrumental performances of the highest calibre, all lead by Sam´s expert vocals.
