Folk music has played a key role in American history, evoking communal action, carrying the stories from community to community and generation to generation, and providing the soundtrack for the great American awakening in the late 50s and 60s. Sam Baker Trio blends the traditional, enduring folk songs with up-to-date folk selections from across America, Canada, and around the world. His fresh approach keeps these traditions alive while delivering a contemporary, fun, upbeat show that is appropriate for all ages. The Trio's performances echo the traditions of the great folk groups such as The Kingston Trio, The Limelighters, and Peter, Paul & Mary. Reminiscent of Stan Rogers, Jimmy Buffett, and Gordon Lightfoot, Sam combines rich history, compelling stories, and fun music that will have the audience clapping hands and singing along.
