Sam Reider and the Human Hands

Sam Reider and the Human Hands
Jazz/Bluegrass | Saturday, September 15th, 2018

Jazz pianist turned roots musician, Sam Reider is redefining American music on the accordion. He’s been featured at Lincoln Center and on NPR, and performed alongside pop stars, jazz and folk musicians ranging from Jon Batiste and Stay Human, Bluegrass mandolin prodigy Sierra Hull to Venezuelan cuatro virtuoso Jorge Glem. For his debut record as bandleader, Too Hot To Sleep, Reider has assembled a “staggeringly virtuosic band” (RnR Magazine) of young bluegrass and jazz musicians called The Human Hands. Irresistible melodies, fiery improvisation and otherworldly sounds collide in what Songlines Magazine has dubbed “mash-up of the the Klezmatics, Quintette du Hot Club de France and the Punch Brothers.”

The Human Hands are a collective of virtuoso jazz and bluegrass musicians from Brooklyn, NY. Along with Reider, they include violinist Alex Hargreaves (Turtle Island Quartet, Sarah Jarosz, Béla Fleck), saxophonist Eddie Barbash (Late Night with Stephen Colbert, Jon Batiste and Stay Human), guitarist Grant Gordy (David Grisman, Darol Anger, Aoife O’Donovan), mandolinist Dominick Leslie (Michael Daves, Tony Trischka, The Deadly Gentlemen), guitarist Roy Williams (Stephane Wrembel), and bassist Dave Speranza (Jim Campilongo)

Decorating Table Rules:

We encourage everyone to decorate tables as sometimes prizes will be given away for “Best Decoration”, “Most Creative”, etc.

Table decorations may begin no earlier than 5:30pm.

Decorations may not obstruct views of those behind your table. If you are requested to move an object, the judges will still count that piece toward your total table decorations.

Alcohol:
Due to GA Law: Bringing your own alcoholic beverages is strictly prohibited, wine and local craft beer will be available for purchase for your convenience and in a commitment to being accessible for the community.

Rain:

This event will be “Rain or Shine” and there is no rain date set for this show. We rarely cancel a performance prior to showtime. If guests leave of their own volition and the show is not cancelled, no rain checks will be given. Tents will not be allowed as they will obstruct views for other guests.

Please note that all sales are final.

About the Lantern Series:

The Lantern Series is about conversations and community at its core. While world class performances will be taking place, the community as a whole will be able to come and converse. This series will strive to introduce new music, ideas, and cultures, that aren’t typical for the community. We hope that this venture will grow into building more, deeper, and authentic moments with you involved.
