Colum Sands at Forest Folk Club

1st October 2017


Colum Sands has performed in over thirty countries around the world, confirming the universal appeal for the songs and stories with which he observes the minute and often humorous details of life.  A member of the internationally renowned Sands Family from County Down, Colum established his reputation as a songwriter with the release of his first solo album, Unapproved Road in 1981. Songs like Whatever you say, say nothing, and Almost every Circumstance were soon in the repertoire of artists from Billy Connolly to Maddy Prior and June Tabor. His work in radio and studio production earned him the Living Tradition Award for services to Folk and Traditional Music. Colum has also produced countless albums for traditional singers and songwriters, he also produced four tracks on the Sound Neighbours CD released by the Smithsonian Institute in Washington, an album which was short listed for a Grammy Nomination.  In 2012, Colum took time out from touring and his weekly radio programme to write and record his ninth album, Turn the Corner.  The album was released during the  2013  Fiddler’s Green International Festival and since then many of the ten original songs including   “Annie I owe you”, “Lazy Hill”,  “The Glassmaker’s Hand” “Two Angry Dogs” and the title track, have become firm favourites with audiences around the world.
