Thursday Jams 2018 - Sam Lewis
Thursday, May 17, 2018
Abingdon Market Pavilion
The Abingdon Music Experience's goal is to create a thriving community that locals and visitors alike can enjoy and experience. The AME is designed to bring more people downtown to hear a variety of quality musical acts, eat, drink, shop and spend the night. We have 4 signature events throughout the year including: January Jams, Thursday Jams, Main Street Blues Fest and the Abingdon Crooked Road Music Fest. Look for these and new events to be added. It's always playtime in Abingdon!
- Like many before him, Sam Lewis came to Nashville to make music. But unlike the majority, Lewis managed to hop on one of the most successful tours that country music has seen as of late. He's collaborated with everyone from John Prine and Kacey Musgraves to The Wood Brothers. Chris Stapleton dubbed him "a modern Townes Van Zandt". And while he's often labeled with some form of the word 'soulful' (some have even compared his voice to molasses), Lewis' style meets at a juncture of many different genres. There's something about Sam Lewis that is indescribably different -- and with his newest project, he's discovered what most musicians spend lifetimes working for -- the place where feel-good music meets vital social commentary.
