Born and raised in Wythe County in southwest Virginia, Sam Gleaves performs innovative mountain music with a sense of history.
2016 saw him make his UK debut with his new album and single Ain’t We Brothers as well as supporting Peggy Seeger on UK dates. He made quite an impact, with BBC Folk radio support from all around the UK and he has just completed a print feature interview for the next issue of Rock n Reel magazine. Mike Harding hailed the album as “One of the most beautiful albums I have heard in the last ten years”. Rock n Reel magazine said "...as fine an album of contemporary Appalachian style folk as you will hear in many a long year"
