Blues and beyond, and nimble fingers on guitar.
We are delighted to welcome Sunjay to the Ryburn Folk Club on Wednesday 30 May. Sunjay’s music drifts between folk and blues with huge flair and he is recognised for his talent in both: he made the final selection for the BBC Young Folk Award in 2012, had three nominations at the Exposure Music Awards 2014 and was also recognised by the 2014 British Blues Awards.
Sunjay started playing the guitar when he was 4 years old. His style is relaxed and he plays with a confident vocal style and mastery of his instrument. His performances have been described as “mature and confident”, while his guitar playing has been hailed as “superb, brilliant, experienced, intricate and faultless”. Sunjay has four albums to his name: ‘Seems So Real’ 2011, ‘One Night Only’ 2013, ‘Sunjay’ 2014), and “Black & Blues” 2015.
