Got an email from Adam Trice the other day. Adam is the man behind Red Sammy:
Red Sammy is Baltimore singer/songwriter, Adam Trice. The band name is a reference to Flannery O’Connor’s short story, “A Good Man is Hard to Find,” (1955). Trice describes the music as “graveyard country,” a style that embraces the beauty in imperfection. Life, work, hard work, disappointment, love and loss are all themes entwined in his songs.
Music and arrangements are provided by Red Sammy’s ensemble, The Electric-Wire Blackbirds: John “Chesapeake” Decker (resonator guitar), Greg Humphreys (bass, electric guitar, mandolin), and Tony Calato (drums).
Seems that Red Sammy is coming to Charlottesville, “incorporating poetry from my book, In Places with Bad Lighting, into our musical performance.”
Give him a listen at redsammy.com, and if you like what you hear, here are the deets:
