Sam Schuth, a familiar face for Eastport music-goers of nearly two decades, arrived home for a visit, musical friends in tow, on April 12. His April 13 recital presented a pleasing array of flavors and styles, and the near-full house clearly appreciated his efforts. In addition to performing solo renditions of Bach’s Chaconne and Misty Mazzoli’s Dissolve, O My Heart, Sam brought Portland-based musicians Max Eddington, piano, and Kinnon Church, bass, to join him for a mesmerizing rendition of Haydn’s Gypsy Trio.

After humorously serving as stage hands for the first portion of the show, Sam’s brothers, Henry and Frank Schuth got to jump in musically for a set of Schuth Faktori tunes, to the delight of audience members of all ages, but perhaps especially for those who ‘knew them back when.’
“While enjoying Sam Schuth’s concert last week the years just flew right by, back to when I watched three young boys, barely babies, play their instruments in Eastport Strings,” said Chris Grannis. “Suddenly, all worries left … How wonderful to see our children grow up to be such talented and generous adults.”

—EAC is pleased to announce that Sam will be back this summer as part of our Concert Series—on August 9! Stay tuned for details.—
