Stop Press – Sunjay has been added to the bill.

Anyone who’s seen him perform at Gate To Southwell before will relish the opportunity of catching this fine 22 year old guitarist once again. Standing in for Johnny Dickinson who has had to withdraw through illness, Sunjay’s style has that natural drift between folk and blues and both camps have recognised his obvious flair. There have been a clutch of award nominations, including winning the Wath Festival Young Performers Award. He also made the final selection for the BBC’s Young Folk Award in 2012, had three nominations at the Exposure Music Awards 2014 and was also recognised by the 2014 British Blues Awards. With a relaxed and confident manner, vocal style and mastery of his instrument, Sunjay addresses the audience as though he is sitting down playing music with close friends; a completely natural approach for a young man who picked up the guitar when he was just 4 years old and hasn’t put it down since.
