Sam Barrett
From: Leeds, UK

Sam Barrett - guitar, vocals.

Sounds like: Damn fine down-home Delta Blues.

Think Robert Johnson. Sam plays American folk tunes, English country songs, old spirituals and original songs in the style. It's easy to forget how connected various musical genres are, but of course the American folk tradition came out of the English countryside, and it's great to hear them all played together. And when's the last time you heard a 12-string played right?

Favorite song: Tongue Tied Blues
