BTV Hosts Artosphere Festival Performance: Sam Reider and The Human Hands
Tuesday, June 11 | 2pm
Butterfield Trail Village is pleased to host an exclusive performance from Walton Arts Center’s 2019 Artosphere: Arkansas’ Arts + Nature Festival – Sam Reider and The Human Hands! The Human Hands is a Brooklyn-based ensemble of acoustic musicians led by jazz pianist turned roots musician Reider, who is redefining American music with the accordion. Since the release of the debut record Too Hot To Sleep in 2018, The Human Hands has appeared at major festivals throughout the nation, performed live on the BBC, and completed a ten-day tour of the United Kingdom. Called “staggeringly virtuosic” by RnR Magazine, the band includes musicians Alex Hargreaves on violin, Eddie Barbash on saxophone, Dominick Leslie on mandolin, Roy Williams on guitar, and Dave Speranza on bass. As part of WAC’s Artosphere Festival, Reider and The Hands will perform at Thorncrown Chapel in Eureka Springs, Mildred B. Cooper Memorial Chapel in Bella Vista — and now at Butterfield’s own state-of-the-art Performance Hall.
