Sylvester Manor Concert Series presents two Shows- Sam Reider & the Human Hands

 

2019 SYLVESTER MANOR CONCERT SERIES

Sam Reider and the Human Hands brings jazz/bluegrass fusion music to Shelter Island

 

Date:                     Saturday, May 11, 2019 - 6:00 and 8:00 pm (two shows)

Location:              Sylvester Manor Music Room, 80 North Ferry Road, Shelter Island, NY

 

Shelter Island, NY: On Saturday May 11, 2019 the Sylvester Manor Educational Farm will proudly present the third edition of their 2019 concert series with Sam Reider and the Human Hands, who will perform two shows in the intimate setting of the Music Room of the historic Manor House.

 

The Human Hands is an ensemble of talented musicians based in Brooklyn, led by composer, accordionist and pianist Sam Reider. Since the release of their debut album “Too Hot to Sleep” in early 2018, the band has appeared at major festivals throughout the US, performed live on the BBC and completed a ten-day tour of the UK. Their 2019 season includes headline performances at the Savannah Music Festival and Jazz at Lincoln Center and of course, the Music Room at Sylvester Manor!

 

Irresistible melodies, fiery improvisation and otherworldly sounds collide in what Songlines Magazine has dubbed “a mash-up of the Klezmatics, Quintette du Hot Club de France and the Punch Brothers.” This “staggeringly virtuosic band” (RnR Magazine) includes Alex Hargreaves (Live From Here, Sarah Jarosz) on violin, Eddie Barbash (Jon Batiste and Stay Human) on saxophone, Dominic Leslie (Hawktail, Ricky Skaggs) on mandolin, Grant Gordy (David Grisman Quintet) on guitar and Dave Speranza (Jim Campilongo) on bass. Listen to the band performing by visiting https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4cYOuAWFqGI.

 

Tickets for Sam Reider & The Human Hands are $30 in advance and $35 at the door. This is a limited-seating event, so buying tickets early is recommended.  Visit https://www.sylvestermanor.org/music to purchase tickets or call the Manor at (631) 749-0626.

 

About Sylvester Manor Educational Farm: Once a Native American hunting and fishing ground, Sylvester Manor has since 1652 been home to eleven generations of its original European settler family. Over time, the place has been transformed from a slaveholding provisioning plantation to an Enlightenment-era farm, then to a pioneering food industrialist’s estate and today to an organic educational farm responsive to, and supported by, our neighbors and friends worldwide. In light of this history, we envision a farm, a community, and a world where people celebrate food, arts, and inventiveness in the everyday, with a spirit of fairness and joy.

2019 Sylvester Manor Concert Series Presents "Quebec's Les Poules a Colin"

 

2019 SYLVESTER MANOR CONCERT SERIES

Les Poules à Colin brings modern Quebecois folk music to Shelter Island

 

Date:                     Saturday, April 13, 2019 - 6:00 and 8:00 pm (two shows)

Location:              Sylvester Manor Music Room, 80 North Ferry Road, Shelter Island, NY

 

Shelter Island, NY: On Saturday April 13, 2019 the Sylvester Manor Educational Farm will proudly present the second edition of their 2019 concert series with Quebec’s Les Poules à Colin, who will perform two shows in the intimate setting of the Music Room of the historic Manor House.

 

Taking their name from a traditional song, Les Poules à Colin were raised behind the scenes at folk festivals and kitchen parties amongst some of Quebec’s finest traditional musicians that included their parents. They have been playing together for nine years, performing in Canada, the U.S., Europe, the U.K., Australia and Africa. 

 

Their cohesiveness shows in the complicity of their songs, their captivating stage presence and contagious pleasure in performance. The group’s sound is a seamless blend of their Quebecois upbringing and North American influences that range from old-time to jazz, with a mixed repertoire of original and traditional pieces in both French and English. Their adaptations of traditional songs from Quebec, Brittany or Louisiana speak eloquently to their generation while retaining the beauty of timeless music. Fiddle, guitar, lap-steel, banjo, mandolin, piano, bass and foot percussion are used by Les Poules à Colin to reveal a unique and modern perspective on traditional Quebec culture.

 

Les Poules à Colin is – Colin Savoie-Levac, Marie Savoie-Levac, Eleonore Pitre, Beatrix Methe and Sarah Marchand 

 

“Get ready world, this group is already really, really good and on its way to greatness!”

-Edinburgh Fringe Festival

 

”Hailing from top traditional musical stock, what especially elevates this group is the musicians’ conscious modernity; the sum of its parts is very 21st century.” 

-Songlines Magazine

 

Tickets for Les Poules a Colin are $30 in advance and $35 at the door. This is a limited-seating event, so buying tickets early is recommended.  Visit https://www.sylvestermanor.org/music to purchase tickets or call the Manor at (631) 749-0626.
