Local singer-songwriter Sam Creigh is the featured performer for the November 15th edition of Stage 33 Live’s series “Third Thursdays @ 33”. He’ll be performing original music from his albums Green Mountain Flyer and Wanted Man, and will be offering free signed copies of both CDs to interested audience members.
No cover charge, but there will be a tip jar for Sam, and freewill donations to help Stage 33 Live keep going are gratefully accepted.
Sam grew up in the country; his family owned a cattle ranch in Nebraska, and feed lots in Kansas and Arizona. Musical roots took hold in Tucson in the ’70s, where he played guitar and bass in country rock and Western swing bands. In 1976 he moved to Los Angeles, joined the Shire Brothers trio, and ran an 8-track demo studio on Hollywood Boulevard. Sam and his wife Vivian moved to a small farm in rural Vermont in 1987 to raise their family, where he picked up his Martin and began a solo career. He has honed his skills on the stages of festivals, taverns, ski lodges, and farmer’s markets throughout Vermont, New Hampshire, and Minnesota.
