This is for our blues fans and are we in for a treat. Hailing all the way from the West Midlands and visiting his family in Cornwall – we are delighted to host him at Top House Inn.
Sunjay is the antithesis of your typical denim-clad disheveled folk and blues musician. From his perfectly groomed hair to his spotlessly shining winkle picker boots he walks onto the stage every inch the “city slicker.” When Sunjay starts to sing and play the guitar, however, you are transported to a world where blues and country music meld seamlessly amidst humid mangrove swamps and red neck barbecues. Sunjay is, without doubt, the real deal.
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. His performances have been described as “mature and confident,” while his guitar playing has been hailed as, “superb, brilliant, experienced, intricate and faultless.” Sunjay’s style has that natural drift between folk and blues.
Sunjay has been nominated for many awards. He won 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 nominated for Emerging Blues Artist of the Year at the 2014 British Blues Awards.
Sunjay has in every sense, grown up in public, having performed regularly to ever-increasing audiences from the age of seven. Now, still only in his mid-twenties, Sunjay has become a master guitarist, who has crafted his show to perfection. He also has an encyclopedic knowledge of his music and a wicked sense of humour.
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.
