Without Sam getting the ball rolling decades ago (at a fairly young age I might add), there might not be Narrows fave Crooked Still, jam banders, and others who've taken the banjo, mandolin etc. to a new level.
A 2011 Country Music Association nominee for "Musician of the Year," he's a 3-time Grammy winner and the 2010 Americana Music Association "Instrumentalist of the Year."
He was a founding member of the New Grass Revival, which is like being a Beatle for those following the genre.
The Narrows making history again with this show. Yeah, yeah, yeah!
