Sam Bush has been one of acoustic music's great innovators and consummate collaborators. Sam can make lightning moves to his left or right to play neo-classical music with bass master Edgar Meyer, suit-and-tie wearing bluegrass or country with Lyle Lovett. He's played fiddle and mandolin on sessions by superstars like Garth Brooks and Alabama. Sam has also been honored with three Grammy Awards for his role in projects by Emmylou Harris, Bela Fleck, and in the O Brother, Where Art Thou? soundtrack.
By ignoring orthodoxy, Sam has done as much as anyone since Bill Monroe to shape the destiny of the diminutive mandolin, adding new power and syncopation to its percussive chop and a new harmonic vocabulary that embraces rock, reggae, Afro-pop and jazz.
Appropriate for all ages.
