Derby Cathedral welcome Sam Callahan.

Sam is a 24 year old singer/songwriter from Essex. 

 He’s been performing since he was eight and he started writing his own music when he was just twelve. Intent, even then, on pursuing a career in the music industry.

 In 2013 Sam made it through to the live finals of the UK's X Factor and after getting to the final six he earned his place on the X Factor Arena Tour. 

 Sam says “The X Factor was an incredible experience but it wasn’t an entirely true representation of who I really am. Now I need to show the world what I’m really about and who I am as an artist in today's music industry”.

 Since then, Sam has been performing as an artist non-stop to packed venues all around the world. 

 Sam says, "My music comes straight from the heart, all written and composed by myself, there couldn't be a better representation of myself as an artist.”

 Planning to release new music after selling out Headline gig in London in November 2018, Sam's had a busy holiday season and has big things planned for 2019.

La Vaghezza is a dynamic group of internationally award winning young musicians who have quickly become one of the most sought after chamber ensembles in the international festival scene. Join them for a transformative experience full of luscious sounds from the 1600's, music from another world. 

The programme is inspired by a pivotal icon in Western culture and spirituality – the Virgin Mary. Michaelangelo’s sculpture known as La Pietà is an unforgettable rendering of the Madonna – holding her dying son in her arms, this single infinite gesture of maternal love shows her bowing to destiny. It is through the words hidden behind her silence that the music of this programme is born, recreating the singular relationship between mother and son, full of love and suffering. 

Tickets £15 / £10  available from
