Sam Kelly & Jamie Francis

Vibrant banjo with polished voice and guitar

He tries to deny it, but there really is little doubt that Jamie Francis is the best banjo player in the world. Or if not THE best, then very close to it. Either way, Jamie’s vibrant playing is the perfect fiery decoration for the polished singing and playing of the superb Sam Kelly. Sam lies at the hub of a collection of young and hugely talented rising stars, with whom he records and performs. But you just have to see this duo – their Christmas party performance on our stage a couple of years ago was one of the most explosive nights in recent Ram history.
