What's On

With support from The Brothers Gillespie

The Fade in Time

The Fade in Time is the stunning second album from singer and intrepid traditional song-collector Sam Lee. Drawn from his travels around the UK to seek out ancient songs, his though is very much 21st century music. His distinctive croon, that drops words gently into the air, reaches out to original arrangements and eclectic influences including Japanese court music and Tajikistani wedding marches.

The Daily Mirror described the album as ‘stunning rearrangements of traditional songs feature ravishing instrumentation, archive samples and incisive, spirit-awakening vocal performances from Lee himself.’
