LAST year’s Bri­tain’s Got Tal­ent fi­nal­ist, Sam Kelly, is set to per­form at the Uxbridge Folk Club.

The 21-year-old from Nor­folk will be at the club in Long Lane, Hilling­don, on Thurs­day, Novem­ber 13, when a large crowd is ex­pected.

Peter Slavid from the club said: “We hope he will bring in a good crowd.”

He added that he hoped Sam would en­cour­age more peo­ple to start lis­ten­ing to folk mu­sic.

Sam has been singing Gaelic folk songs from a young age and is de­ter­mined to con­tinue with the fam­ily tra­di­tion.

Since fin­ish­ing Bri­tain’s Got Tal­ent, he has been tour­ing the UK with his band, in­clud­ing Jamie Fran­cis on banjo and Evan Car­son on bodhran – the Ir­ish drum.

The mu­sic will be­gin at 8pm, with tick­ets priced at £8 for gen­eral ad­mis­sion, £3 for stu­dents and free for those un­der 18.

With de­mand ex­pected to be high, tick­ets must be bought on­line, at http://www. we­gottick­ event/29678.
