Things are happening fast at the moment for Sam Kelly & The Lost Boys, whom the Tønder Festival audience enjoyed at the 2017 festival. They are coming again in 2018, which looks like being a very busy year for the band. In autumn 2017, they released the album Pretty Peggy, which garnered fine reviews. The British music magazine Mojo listed their album in their top ten folk releases in 2017. Prominent musical guests such as Cara Dillon and Michael McGoldrick play on the recording, and among the other musicians involved is fiddler Ciaran Algar, a frequent Tønder Festival guest. Sam Kelly is acclaimed as one of the major new names on the British folk scene. His is a voice that can grip an audience and hold their attention, whether he is singing his own songs or interpreting well-known Irish folk songs, and he does it with compelling energy.

Sam Kelly has made two EPs and an album and won a BBC Radio 2 Folk Horizon Award in 2016. With his band The Lost Boys, Sam Kelly is one of the musicians you must see at Tønder Festival 2018.
