Sam Carter Wednesday 15 November 2017 at Carrington folk club

Sam Carter has been described as “one of the most gifted acoustic guitarists of his generation” by Mike Harding, but those of us who saw him open ’50 years from the Summer of Love’ at Southwell with Cream’s “ Sunshine of Your Love”, know his wide range of expertise. His vocal and guitar style draws comparison with John Martyn and lyrically his perspective is closer to Richard Thompson. We expect Sam’s sets to include the 12 songs he wrote for ‘How the City Sings’ his fourth CD released a year ago, which are at times affectingly intimate and at others brimming with righteous rage. Sam said “I’m writing about my own life but also trying to give voice to the lives of others.”
