About the Event
Enjoy an evening listening to traditional Irish tunes performed by Sam Babineau.
Sam Babineau is a songwriter and fiddle player hailing from the South Coast of Massachusetts. She tells personal stories with her songwriting that echo traditional music blended with modern zest. Her introduction to Irish playing came with her involvement in Irish step at the age of 10 and since then, her fiddling has evolved to accompany others and herself. For songwriting inspiration she may look to artists like The Staves, or to more traditional influences such as Lady Maisery and Sam Lee.
Sam can be found in a wide variety of settings, a testament to her versatility and ability to continue expanding her craft. She often tours with singer-songwriter Grace Morrison, and has recently accompanied Grace in settings like Falcon Ridge Festival and SERFA. Sam can also be found entertaining patrons with her fiddling at King Richard’s Faire in Carver, MA. She frequently plays funk and dance tunes with the New Bedford-based band, Nothing But The Rain. She has been passing along her knowledge at Southcoast Lessons in New Bedford, MA for a year now. She is currently living in Boston, MA. You can learn more about Sam here: https://www.sambabineau.com
