Over his fifteen-year career, Midlands-born guitarist and songwriter Sam Carter has earned a reputation for vivid, heartfelt songwriting and captivating live performances.

He is a highly regarded instrumentalist, renowned by many as “the finest English-style fingerpicking guitarist of his generation” (Jon Boden). This autumn, Carter returns with material from his fifth album Silver Horizon, infused with the ethereal textures and soundscapes of the slowcore and dream pop bands he was listening to at the time of writing it. “I’m still dealing with themes of love, loss, and change that have been a part of my earlier work, but at the moment, sketching events in an impressionistic way instead of documenting them in detail gives the songs more room to breathe.” It’s this seamless blend of the intimate and ethereal that makes Silver Horizon the most remarkable album of Carter’s career.

Sam has appeared on national TV, including Later… with Jools Holland, won a BBC Folk Award, and toured the world, sharing stages with folk’s leading lights, including Richard Thompson, Eliza Carthy, Martin Simpson, and Bella Hardy.
