Interview: Sam Lee | WOMAD 2014

From RNZ Music, 4:30 pm on 15 March 2014

Kirsten Johnstone talks to Sam about the old field recordings of English folk that captured his imagination.

Sam Lee is a folk musician who has learnt in a pure folk way - straight from the source, in the aural tradition - but the way he and his musicians interpret the songs is not your run of the mill guitar picking english folk - they're accompanied with Shruti box, a jews harp and other things he's picked up on his travels.
