Pianodrome at the Old Royal High
5-7 Regent Rd, Edinburgh, EH7 5BL
Pianodrome Event by Pianodrome


Sam is a veteran of the mighty Bellowhead, former and inaugural artistic director of the National Youth Folk Ensemble, founder member of the acclaimed instrumental trio Leveret, and “one of the defining English fiddle players of his generation” (Mark Radcliffe) at the forefront of the revival in English traditional music.

A rare chance to experience Sam playing in the glorious acoustic of the all-new Pianodrome, situated in the Old Library at the Old Royal High. We cannot wait to host Sam - this is a very special event, and one we would highly recommend getting along to.

After the release of his two critically acclaimed albums, The Unfinished Violin and Unearth Repeat, Sam is taking to the road for a few exclusive, intimate, totally acoustic solo performances, playing some of his favourite tunes.
Sam has also recorded and performed with The Full English, Eliza Carthy, Jon Boden & The Remnant Kings, Fay Hield & The Hurricane Party, Emily Portman, Martin Carthy, as well as his own critically acclaimed show Made In The Great War.

“The fiddler with the Midas touch… an English equivalent of the great Irish fiddle player Martin Hayes.” **** The Guardian

“Sweeney’s playing is unearthly at times: the singular focus of this set and the level of its performance makes this an outstanding and deeply moving experience.” ***** - Songlines
