Friday 14th October 2016: we welcome Sunjay back to the Hinckley ACT. “Sunjay is very much the man of the moment. Not so much the flavour of the month is the flavour of the year” Living Tradition.
Drawing from a rich, musical and cultural background it is hardly surprising that Sunjay has quickly become recognised as one of the UK’s rising stars.
With special guest Mark John.

His performances have been described as “mature & confident”, while his guitar playing has been hailed as “superb, brilliant, experienced, intricate & faultless”.
Sunjay clocked over a hundred tour dates in 2013 supporting the likes of Steeleye Span, Martin Simpson, Passenger, and Terry Reid. With three albums already to his name, (‘Seems So Real’ 2011, ‘One Night Only’ 2013 and ‘Sunjay’ 2014) Sunjay has just recorded his fourth release (“Black & Blues” released 30th November 2015).
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.
“Already creating a stir with talents way beyond his years. A really soothing, natural sound and most definitely destined for bigger things.” – Maverick Magazine
