Hannah James and Sam Sweeney

Hannah James and Sam Sweeney
Hannah James and Sam Sweeney are one of the foremost duos performing English Folk Music today. They released their second album, State and Ancientry in April 2012. Their music consists mainly of English songs and tunes on accordion and fiddle, and their live show includes Hannah’s renowned high-energy clog dancing.

Sam plays with multi-award winning folk group Bellowhead, Jon Boden and The Remnant Kings, and Fay Hield and The Hurricane Party. Hannah sings, plays and dances with BBC Folk Award nominated Lady Maisery and Maddy Prior of Steeleye Span.

“An absolutely cracking follow up! I think they’re amazing, not just as young players but as players of any age. Brilliant musicians.” - Mike Harding, BBC Radio 2.

They're on at 7.30pm this Thursday 27 June in the AtkinsonLord Street, Southport. On-line tickets.
