Folk at Cast: Serious Sam Barrett and Katie Spencer Live Stream

Join us for another brilliant live stream from Folk at Cast, featuring Serious Sam Barrett and Katie Spencer.

Serious Sam Barrett

Serious Sam Barrett is a hard touring, folk and country singer/songwriter from Otley, West Yorkshire. Playing honest, heartfelt self penned and traditional songs on 12 string guitar and banjo.

“The sustained brilliance of this playing is really something to behold.” Bob Harris, BBC Radio 2

“Old before his years country-folk fellow who mixes intricate John Fahey finger-picking with confessional tales of dirty old Leeds” The Guardian.

“His well crafted original songs are accompanied by his own sparkling clawhammer banjo or dextrous 12 srtring guitar picking.” Froots magazine.


Katie Spencer

At just 23 years old Spencer has built up an extremely respected profile within the national acoustic music scene, sharing the stage with musicians of outstanding calibre such as Danny Thompson and Ted McKenna, and continuing to receive glowing reviews of both her live performances and recorded works. 

“Katie’s guitar playing has echoes of my dear friend the late great Bert Jansch. Like a musical weaver she threads her poetic lyrics through the guitar’s strings and produces little tapestries of song” Ralph McTell 

“The way Katie plays is never contrived, showy or imitative; it sounds true … a world-class folk guitarist” – fRoots 

“Great discoveries are always a pleasure and Katie Spencer’s debut album Weather Beaten is a grand pleasure” – RnR Magazine
