Bluegrass Wednesday’s continues March 27 with Sam Hill at the Annex of Gastro Mania in Multnomah village. 7-9PM. $5 cover.
Portland based Sam Hill was a perennial favorite amongst bluegrass music fans here in the Pacific Northwest for about a dozen years until their breakup at the beginning of 2005. Three critically acclaimed CD’s chock full of impressive, traditional sounding original songs, as well as exciting stage shows, had helped boost the group’s popularity and brought them to many of the West Coast’s major festivals. Sam Hill also performed across the United States, touring New England, making an appearance at the Telluride Bluegrass Festival, as well as showcasing at the International Bluegrass Music Association’s annual trade show in Louisville, Kentucky. This fine neo-traditional bluegrass group has reunited in 2018, featuring Jeff Smith on mandolin/vocals, Doug Sammons on guitar/vocals, Peter Schwimmer on banjo/vocals, and Chuck Davidshofer on bass/vocals. These superb pickers continue to perform high energy, traditional bluegrass music for fans young and old.
The Annex @ Gastro Mania offers a limited dinner menu of Mediterranean food and a fully stocked bar. Come to this great setting and listen to classic bluegrass and have some good food!
