With a relaxed and confident manner,  Sunjay walks on to 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 just 4 years old and hasn’t put it down since.

Sunjay’s style has a 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. His latest album, Black & Blues Revisited, was released in 2022.

Drawing from a rich, musical and cultural background it is hardly surprising that Sunjay has quickly become acknowledged as one of the folk scene’s rising stars. His performances have been described as “mature & confident”, while his guitar playing has been hailed as “superb, brilliant, experienced, intricate & faultless”. An evening with Sunjay is an evening of exquisite blues, country and folk music combined with a master class in guitar playing interspersed with hilarious anecdotes.
