Bright Series: Sam Reider & The Human Hands

January 16 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Redefining American music on the accordion.

Irresistible melodies, fiery improvisation and otherworldly sounds collide in what Songlines Magazine has dubbed “mash-up of the Klezmatics, Quintette du Hot Club de France and the Punch Brothers.” Anchored by virtuosic accordionist Sam Reider, the band features a who’s who of contemporary roots music: Alex Hargreaves (Live From Here, Sarah Jarosz) on violin, Eddie Barbash (Jon Batiste and Stay Human) on saxophone, Dominick Leslie (Hawktail, Ricky Skaggs) on mandolin, Roy Williams (Stephane Wrembel) on guitar, and Dave Speranza (Jim Campilongo) on bass.

Before the show there will be a podcast interview with Sam for Hangin’ & Sangin’, a podcast and radio show hosted by music journalist Kelly McCartney. Hangin’ & Sangin’ offers up casual conversation and acoustic performances by some of your favorite roots artists, from Americana to folk, country, blues, bluegrass, Southern soul, and rock & roll. Come hang with us before the show for an intimate interview that promises to give you a deeper look at both the humanity and artistry of our featured performers.
