Sam Pointer “Fallen Heroes 2016”
Birmingham favorite Sam Pointer performs a tribute to some of the great musical artists we lost in 2016!. From pop superstars like Prince and David Bowie, to acoustic masters like Leonard Cohen, Ralph Stanley, and Guy Clark, to behind-the-scenes geniuses like Scotty Moore (Elvis’ guitarist) and Sir George Martin (the Beatles’ producer), Sam weaves their contributions into a fascinating and entertaining look at the American musical landscape. He will also be premiering a new song written especially to honor these legends.
Singer/songwriter/guitarist/multi-instrumentalist Sam Pointer is a one-man-band whose music stretches across many genres: rock to bluegrass, blues to pop, singer-songwriter to Celtic. He has recorded with Grammy winners the Temptations and Emmy winner Christopher Hedge, has played coast to coast as a solo artist and as lead guitarist with New Potato Caboose, and has won awards at MerleFest and the Telluride Bluegrass Festival. His previous performances at the Moonlight have included his popular “Acoustic Christmas” and “John Hartford Tribute” shows. This solo show will showcase his flatpicked and fingerstyle guitar and other stringed instruments, plus (on certain songs) his mesmerizing looping of multiple guitar and percussion parts … all in the name of honoring these fallen music heroes!
