The Show

BBC Radio 2 Young Folk Award nominee 2012.

British Blues Awards nominee 2014.

With talents way beyond his years, Derby-born Sunjay is an extremely talented blues-folk guitarist and singer/songwriter reminiscent of Ralph McTell, John Martyn and early Tim Buckley. Well known on the UK folk scene, Sunjay is an artist with a rare mix of youth (he has just turned 25), combined with a superb, experienced and intricate acoustic guitar style.

Sunjay is pretty much the antithesis of your typical denim clad dishevelled folk and blues musician. From his perfectly groomed hair to his spotlessly shining winkle picker boots he is every inch the ‘city slicker’. With a relaxed and confident manner, exquisite vocal style, mastery of his instrument and entertaining and often hilarious stories and anecdotes, he walks onto a stage and addresses the audience as though he is sitting down to play music with a group of close friends; a completely natural approach for a young man who picked up the guitar when he was just four years old and hasn’t put it down
