Songs For London @ Cecil Sharp House 3.11.16

17th October 2016

On Thursday 3rd November Sam will be performing as part of a special ‘Songs For London’ show at Cecil Sharp house, celebrating the 150th Anniversary of English Heritage’s Blue Plaques scheme. With a stellar multi artist line-up including Lisa Knapp, Stick In The Wheel and Jack Harris, the musicians will perform folk songs collected by notable London based folk song collectors as well as original and traditional songs about the city.

‘We celebrate those folk collectors memorialised with Blue Plaques, Cecil Sharp and Percy Grainger, and the enormous contribution that musicians and composers have made to the life and culture of London. This series of concerts is also the campaign launch to secure more Blue Plaques particularly for those from the folk and jazz genres.’
