Tom is a conservationist, ornithologist, sound recordist and environmentalist. Most recently he's been working for the Institute for European Environmental Policy on the European Commission's forthcoming Pollinators Initiative and case studies highlighting conservation measures that have produced large scale improvements in the status of species and habitats in Europe.

He will be sharing his lifelong passion for birds again in 2018, leading appetite-whetting bird-song walks and introducing participants to the life of Nightingales.

Events with Sam

Mercury Prize nominated folk singer, song collector, award winning promoter, broadcaster, animateur, and naturalist.

As an artist Sam traverses many worlds, challenging and pioneering folk music in diverse places and ways. Not just an award-winning singer with two highly decorated albums to his name and a sound incomparable to his contemporaries’; his work fostering live music in the UK has been instrumental in the explosion of folk of the last decade. Sam reinvents not just the way these ancient songs should sound but how they can be sourced, exist and thrive, from conscientiously gathering them in Gypsy Traveler camps to singing them for the Hollywood big screen.

Sam’s debut album, ‘Ground of its Own’ was conceived after winning the prestigious Arts Foundation Prize in 2011 and nominated for the 2012 Mercury Music Prize. His second album, ‘The Fade in Time’ (2015) has been equally feted. At the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards 2016, Sam was presented with ‘Best Traditional Song’ for his version of the song ‘Lovely Molly’. During the ceremony, he performed the song live, backed by the 40-piece Roundhouse Choir, in front of a sold-out show at the Royal Albert Hall, London. The same week, Sam and his band of Friends were invited to perform the same song on BBC TV’s ‘Later with Jools’.
