Sam Sweeney (BBC Radio 2 Folk Musician Of The Year 2015) was at the heart of the legendary Bellowhead, and Emily Portman invited him to join in the first New Meetings series in 2015. When we asked Sam in turn to choose a guest, he went for folk legend Martin Carthy – they’ll be playing together tonight for the very first time.
