Sam Weber, with drummer Danny Austin Manning, comes to The Séamus Ennis Arts Centre

Canadian-born artist Sam Weber spans an eclectic range of roots, americana, improvisational music and jazz influences. He has released three LPs of his own material, collaborated with Grammy winners, and contributed guitar to the 2021 Juno-winning Bahamas album, Sad Hunk. Supporting his latest release Get Free, Sam is going forth with the same intention and mantra as when he began: “Music is an emotional conduit between people and allows us the opportunity to share moments of truth and unity. In an age where the ritual of music-making can be a solitary exercise, I want to live my life to remind everyone that playing music as a communal and spontaneous practice can be healing and powerful.”  

“I’m so glad he’s writing his own songs and making his own records.” — Kathy Mattea, host NPR Music’s Mountain Stage 

 “I think the song of the year is “Ex-Lover” by Sam Weber. The guy’s a hell of a songwriter, great musician, great guitarist… he’s going to do big things” Afie Jurvanen, Bahamas  

 “[Weber] is an expert tunesmith, brimming with addictive, adventurous and confident pieces. Infused with deep wit and wisdom, Weber’s output is truly impressive. His guitar work is also killer, full of nuance, soul and a truly unique voice…. We’ll be hearing a lot more from Weber in the coming years and, more than likely, decades” Guitar Player
