About Serious Sam Barrett

There's nothing contrived or forced about the music he makes. Everything has it's place. It's all very natural. Marc Riley Show (BBC Radio 6)

Serious Sam Barrett, from Addingham, splendid folk blues from the West Yorkshire hills Gideon Coe show.(BBC Radio 6)


Songs that rattle with the ghosts of Appalachian folk, and southern blues, yet sound emphatically English.
UNCUT MAGAZINE

Old before his years country-folk fellow who mixes intricate John Fahey fingerpicking with confessional tales of dirty old Leeds-THE GUARDIAN (PICK OF THE WEEK)

“Yorkshirecana bluegrass brilliance from Serious Sam. He plays a mean 12 string resonator, mixing songs about his home county with traditional southern folk stompers. There’s authenticity, there’s soul - someone to get very excited about.”- ARTROCKER

(ARTROCKER MAGAZINE voted his first album NUMBER 27 in the top 100 albums of 2009 (not bad for a 500 limited pressing) http://artrocker.com/node/19662)

“Deliciously home-grown, this is a rewarding collection of songs that could well renew your faith in underground folk scenes. This stripped down and raw album is riddled with the gritty reality of this artist's Northern life and makes no apologies” ACOUSTIC MAGAZINE

“An endlessly playable delight from beginning to end”- VINTAGE GUITAR MAGAZINE (USA)
