Samuel James

Globe-hopping blues virtuoso Samuel James brings his solo, foot-stomping act to the Schoodic Arts for All Coffeehouse!

 

With a voice of grit and gravel, roots musician Samuel James sings with an authenticity lost in time. A modern guitar master, James’ skill has a depth and range that seems impossible for a man with only two hands.

An award-winning songwriter, one of the world’s most innovative guitar players, and a Moth-featured storyteller, James brings all of this to his amazing stage show. His live performance is not just a concert; it is an event.

He was born the last in a long line of performers including dancers, story tellers, choir singers, jazz pianists, and porch-stomping guitar thumpers dating back to the 1800s.

Samuel James’ songwriting has been compared to Leonard Cohen’s and his guitar skills to those of Jimi Hendrix. His 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 Toronto’s Northern Blues label has gained Samuel praise not only for carrying on great traditions, but for being a true innovator.

He has received standing ovations for his performances from Maine to California as well as Canada, England, Ireland, Wales, Scotland, Germany, France, Portugal, Spain, Norway, Belgium, Poland, Romania, Russia and Turkey.

Great Desserts and locally roasted coffee, too!
