Human Hands' band leader Sam Reider is an accordionist, pianist and composer based in Brooklyn. His Human Hands is essentially a Folk Orchestra - a collective of young, virtuoso acoustic musicians who have developed a cultish following and a reputation for mind-bending sets of high-energy, improvised music.
The group has toured throughout the US and UK, appearing at major venues and festivals such as Jazz at Lincoln Center, Celtic Connections, and the Savannah Music Festival. Their most recent release, “The Human Hands EP” features 6 original compositions recorded and filmed live-to-tape in Brooklyn. These pieces feature several styles of music written for various ensembles: a solo piano prelude, a trio for accordion, violin, and octave-mandolin, and folk-infused compositions for 6 and 7-piece ensemble.
With: Sam Reider - accordion; Alex Hargreaves - violin; Roy Williams - guitar and Dave Speranza - bass.
