Watch the video for Sam Lee's 'The Ballad Of George Collins', taken from his Mercury Prize nominated  'Ground Of Its Own' album.

The debut album by the folk musician saw him undertake to learn traditional songs directly from traveller and gypsy communities and has been hailed for his work with The Nest Collective in regenerating interest in live folk music.

The winner of the 2012 Mercury Prize will be announced on 1st November. Good luck Sam.
