Host: Jamie Francis

For 5 string finger-picking banjo players. An introduction to playing melodies and tunes on the banjo.

Jamie is a UK based banjo player, guitarist and songwriter. He started gigging at the age of 12, and grew up surrounded by both the blues music popular in his home town of Maryport, and the Irish folk music played by his father. His playing and song-writing styles reflect these varied influences.


Jamie attended the Brighton Institute of Modern Music where he received a 1st Class BA Hons in Music Performance. At University he met his long time musical collaborator Sam Kelly, whose band Sam Kelly and the Lost Boys has won a BBC Folk Award and seen Jamie play all over the world. As well as the international gigging, Jamie has played live sessions on BBC Radio 2 and 3, played in Seth Lakeman's band and supported numerous folk legends such as Cara Dillon and Sean Lakeman & Kathryn Roberts.
