Elaine Samuels began her singing / song writing and performing career as a solo artist back in the early '90s and still enjoys performing solo.
As well as having given plenty of interviews on the radio, Elaine has also performed on television a number of times. She performed live on Wire TV at the Bentalls Centre in Kingston, came second on a televised talent contest called "Live at The Y" at Leicester's Y Theatre (she was the only solo act out of a show where the other performers were all rock bands). She was also filmed for HTV, as part of an environmental series, on top of Glastonbury Tor, where she sang one of her own songs, "Blue Skies".
Elaine formed the first incarnation of the "Kindred Spirit Band" back in the '90s and, like "Fairport Convention" there have been many incarnations since!
