Folk & World


Part of New Music Biennial

Discover Hull’s history of vernacular folk song through a collection of songs from in and around the city, assembled by Mercury Prize-nominated Sam Lee. Lee is the driving force behind eclectic folk club The Nest Collective.

Drawing on recorded testimonials that capture the oral traditions still sustained by residents of the region, Lee creates a rich sonic triptych.

Combining found sounds and arranged accompaniment, Hullucination paints a musical portrait of the city and its manifold characters and characteristics.

Presented in association with the PRS Foundation
