Get ready, newgrass fans, SAM BUSH, the master of the mandolin, is coming back to town for a show at THE SPINNING JENNY on FRIDAY, AUGUST 10th!

It’s old news, but worth retelling every now and then how far back the Sam Bush/Horizon Records connection goes, and how super-proud of his achievements we are, and how exhilarated we are for his return to the area on August 10th for a show at The Spinning Jenny in Greer.

The voice of Sam Bush is a unique and now instantly familiar thread that is woven through an unprecedented amount and variety of great American Roots music. Starting with the genre-expanding work he did as founder/leader of the truly legendary New Grass Revival in the 1970s and 80s and all during that and onward his signature fiery fiddle and virtuosic mandolin and Kentucky inflected vocals have been on stage and adorned the recordings of an ridiculous list of artists; to name just a paltry few- Emmylou Harris, Lyle Lovett, Guy Clark, Tony Rice, Leon Russell, Yonder Mountain String Band, Bela Fleck, Jerry Douglas, Joshua Bell.

His forward looking acoustic instrumental flourishes and new grass inclinations are as strong his legit and traditional Bluegrass roots are deep.

We at Horizon Records encourage you to drop by and check out some of Sam’s tunes, and pick up your tickets for The Spinning Jenny show HERE.

The freewheeling style that Sam puts forth gleefully picks and chooses from jazz, folk, blues, reggae, country swing, and bluegrass to create a jubilant noise only classifiable as the “Sam Bush sound.” His latest album, Storyman continues Bush’s tradition of creating something completely new and fresh for each recording, this time focusing on stories from some of the most popular songsmiths of our time. Many of the songs are stories––several of them true––and the legendary mandolin player co-wrote every one of them with friends, including the late Guy Clark, Emmylou Harris, Jon Randall Stewart, Jeff Black, and members of the venerable Sam Bush Band. But that’s not all; the albums features performances by Emmylou, Deborah Holland, Donnie Sundal, Alison Krauss, Harold “Pig” Robbins & Steve Fishell.

For Bush, a lifetime of channeling his energy into his art has led to stylistic innovations that have changed the course of bluegrass and roots music alike. Bush has taken home three GRAMMY awards, received a Lifetime Achievement for Instrumentalist Award from the Americana Music Association, hosted the International Bluegrass Music Association Awards, and has been honored as Mandolin Player of the Year four times. In March 2010, Legislation passed in Kentucky, Bush’s home state, that officially named Bowling Green the “Birthplace of Newgrass,” and Sam Bush the “Father of Newgrass.”

We’ll have Storyman in-stock when Sam gets to town, along with these other tasty mando-masterworks!

  • YAMAHA NATURAL SOUND A-700 INTEGRATED STEREO AMPLIFIER

  • BOSE 901 SERIES V SPEAKERS WITH BOSE 901 SERIES V ACTIVE EQUALIZER
    The essentially crossoverless design gives the 901 an unmistakable coherence, the model’s greatest strength. Its incredibly wide dispersion comes in a close second. The Bose 901s sound great anywhere in the room, After extensive listening, the Bose 901s strike me as being damn good. They have some limitations, but don’t all $1,400 speakers? For that matter, what $10,000 speakers are perfect? They are so smooth and musical.

  • ADVENT LAUREATE Mini Tower Speakers
    amazing sound, brilliant natural refined listening experience. woofers on both speakers just completely rebuilt better than new! The Advents, both large and small, sounded pretty good and gave excellent value for the money. The company was one of a long string of companies that descended from the original Acoustic Research (AR). Advents eventually lost their enormous popularity and nearly faded away. International Jensen, a company based in the Chicago suburbs, rescued Advent and resurrected it. The Advent model we tested deserves a Ph.D. Advent appropriately names it the Laureate. The Laureate overwhelmed my skepticism that a modestly priced floor-standing loudspeaker could deliver good sound
