Winner of an astonIshing five BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards, Jim Moray sees pop, rock and folk all as parts of the same musical landscape. After five ground-breaking albums including his debut, 2003 BBC Folk Award-winning album ‘Sweet England‘, and ‘Low Culture’ ,2008: fRoots Critics Poll Best Album Award-winner and Mojo Folk Album of the Year, he now finds himself at the forefront of a new folk revival in the UK, and hailed as a pivotal influence by a new generation of folk musicians.

.

Moray’s career has been a continuous avowal of folk’s relevance to contemporary life and its total indivisibility from the impulses which shape the very best rock and pop. In 2013 he celebrated both 10 years since his landmark debut album Sweet England and the success of his 2012 career best Skulk. Now he brings material from his forthcoming album of traditional ballads out on the road for an evening of storytelling music at its best.
