Sam Kelly and the Lost Boys Hotly Anticipated New Album

Aug 8, 2021

One of the most exciting bands to have entered the UK folk scene in the past twenty years, The Lost Boys is the brainchild of BBC Radio 2 Folk Award winning singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and producer Sam Kelly. The Lost Boys Band has gained a reputation as one of the best live acts in the UK and they have packed out festival tents and venues the world over since they started in 2016. 

With the virtuosic talents of Jamie Francis (banjo), Graham Coe (cello), Toby Shaer (whistles/fiddle), Archie Moss (melodeon) and Evan Carson (drums), The Lost Boys have become known for their eclectic and innovative reworking of traditional songs and tunes from England, Scotland, Ireland and the USA, as well as stunning original music and the occasional surprise classic rock cover. 

Described by Seth Lakeman as ‘one of the best bands on the scene’ and by broadcaster Mark Radcliffe as ‘amazing, thrilling music’, expect to hear uplifting melodies, soaring harmonies and high-octane instrumental performances of the highest calibre – all lead by Sam’s stunning vocals and tempered with a dash of cheeky humour. After the critically acclaimed album ‘Pretty Peggy’ saw them nominated for best group at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards in 2018, The Lost Boys have finished a hotly anticipated new album of brand new material, recorded at Kate Rusby’s legendary Pure Records and due for release on 27th August 2021.

Here’s a sneak of the boys performing Guiding Light taken from the upcoming Wishing Tree Album:
