Sam Hill returns
January 18 @ 6:00 pm - 7:45 pm$5 – $10
Portland based Sam Hill was a perennial favorite amongst bluegrass music fans here in the Pacific Northwest for about a dozen years until their breakup at the beginning of 2005. Three critically acclaimed CD’s chock full of impressive, traditional sounding original songs, as well as exciting stage shows, had helped boost the group’s popularity and brought them to many of the West Coast’s major festivals. Sam Hill also performed across the United States, touring New England, making an appearance at the Telluride Bluegrass Festival, as well as showcasing at the International Bluegrass Music Association’s annual trade show in Louisville, Kentucky. This fine neo-traditional bluegrass group has recently reunited, and will be performing this debut show with the new lineup…featuring original members Jeff Smith on mandolin/vocals and Doug Sammons on guitar/vocals, with Peter Schwimmer on banjo/vocals, Amy Hakanson on fiddle/vocals, and Chuck Davidshofer on bass/vocals. These superb pickers continue to perform high energy, traditional bluegrass music for fans young and old.
