While many of us saw out the darker days of lockdown in the company of banana bread and Netflix, award-winning folk artist Sam Lee was far from idle. Following the release of Old Wow in 2020, the musician and conservationist is hitting the road again with the Old Wow+ tour, offering fans an updated and reimagined version of the album, featuring six bonus tracks.

Performing at Gosforth Civic Theatre on Thursday 25th November, the show will give audiences the opportunity to experience the best of Lee’s evocative and engaging style. Known for his conservation work and involvement with Extinction Rebellion, it’s not surprising that the environment is central to his work. With previous career credits including music direction for Let Nature Sing, which saw birdsong enter the UK Top 20 chart, Lee’s drive to raise awareness of the climate crisis is at the heart of Old Wow+, acting as a compelling call to action.

Building a reputation as a game-changer in the British folk and acoustic scene, Lee artfully combines his trademark intimate sound with a powerful passion for activism and the natural world.
