About Sam Bush
Raised on a farm just outside of Bowling Green, Kentucky, Bush grew up plowing tobacco fields in the Southern summer heat alongside his family. He started playing mandolin when he was 11 years old. “I believe growing up on a farm probably helped me channel my energy into learning music and being so interested in it,” he says. For Bush, a lifetime of channeling his energy has led to stylistic innovations that have changed the course of bluegrass and roots music alike.
Bush took about four years to record the latest installment in his legacy. Recorded partially at Neptone Recording Studios in Destin, Florida, and Bush’s longtime go-to the Sound Emporium in Nashville, "Storyman" sounds like the best of friends swapping tales and jamming for the sake of jamming because that’s exactly what it is.
The Father of Newgrass and King of Telluride has long since established himself as roots royalty. He has soaked up honors such as an Americana Music Association Lifetime Achievement Award and a suite of Grammys and International Bluegrass Music Association trophies, but Bush still strives relentlessly to create something new. Win a chance to see this Americana legend perform live at The Bluebird!
