Rock House Concert featuring Sam Baker

The Rock House, 41 High Street, Reeds Spring

Once you meet him and hear him perform, you will never forget Sam Baker.  Sam is an incredibly insightful and gifted poet, with a gravely voice (think Ray Wyle Hubbard) and an intense intellect that will leave a lasting impression.  He is a man of few words.  Always beautifully chosen, and fully wrought.  Words placed like plants and objects in a Zen Garden.  His website is stark: white, black, sepia and shades of gray.  Baker turned inward, to relearn the use of his body and brain after a Peruvian train bombing almost killed him in 1986.  It’s taken years to heal.  Time to reconnect.  The road back was arduous, but it opened up new vistas in art, poetry and music.   Mercy, released in 2004, was the first in a trilogy of compelling albums with sparse instrumentation and poetic delivery.  It was followed by pretty world in 2007 and cotton in 2009.  Each piece is imprinted with a theme: everyone is at the mercy of another one’s dreams, how beautiful are these days, and talk about forgiveness.   Baker approaches life with a positive attitude – “Life is a gift.  I went through a lot of bitterness – a lot of anger.  But those things are toxic.  Gratitude for what remains is more helpful than resentment for what was lost.  Ultimately, I came to understand that these days are wicked short and terribly beautiful.  All I’ve got – no matter what I hold in my hands, drive around in, or put in the bank,- all I’ve got is this one breath, and if I’m, lucky, I get another.”

Join us for an intimate night of music. Doors open at 6:30 for a potluck dinner, b.y.o.b. social time.

Music begins at 8:00 for the listening room concert. First come, first serve on seating. Tickets are $20 and can be purchased online at https://rockhousecenterforthearts.org/calendar-tickets or at the door.

Please park across the street in the parking lot or anywhere downtown. Our backyard parking is reserved for the band and handicap parking.
