Virginia based Sam Gleaves blew us away when we saw him supporting Peggy Seeger a while ago and we're delighted to be bringing him to E17.
Born and raised in southwest Virginia, Sam Gleaves performs innovative mountain music with a sense of history.
Sam carries on the ballads, dance music and storytelling he learned from numerous mentors in the Appalachian tradition including multi-instrumentalist Jim Lloyd and ballad singer Sheila Kay Adams. In 2015, Sam collaborated with producer Cathy Fink and released a debut record of original songs, titled Ain’t We Brothers, which has been featured by The Guardian, National Public Radio, No Depression, and The Bluegrass Situation.
"A stunning first album . . . I keep very few albums that I am given. This one’s a keeper." - Peggy Seeger
"One of the most beautiful albums I have heard in the last ten years . . . great songwriting, beautiful singing and brilliant musicianship." - Mike Harding
Admission £8 (£6 unwaged)
