Samuel James plans January concert at Gardiner
Guitar Man Samuel James will perform at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, January 22 at Johnson Hall, 280 Water St. in Gardiner.
With a gravel and gravel voice, roots musician Samuel James sings with timeless authenticity. A master of the modern guitar, James’ talent has a depth and breadth that seems impossible for a man with only two hands.
Award-winning songwriter, one of the world’s most innovative guitarists and storyteller Moth Mainstage, James brings it all to his incredible live performance. A live performance by James is part a theater concert, part a porch dance, and part stand-up comedy.
He was the last in a long line of performers, including dancers, storytellers, backing vocalists, jazz pianists and guitar players banging on the porch dating back to the 1800s. James’ songwriting has been compared to that of Leonard Cohen and his guitar virtuosity to that of Jimi Hendrix.
Her critically acclaimed trilogy of albums, “Songs Famed for Sorrow and Joy” (2008), “For Rosa, Maeve and Noreen” (2009), “And for the Dark Road Ahead” (2012) for the Northern Blues label of Toronto has earned him praise not only for carrying on great traditions, but for being a true innovator.
