Sam Reid & The Riot Act

  • Down The Road Beer Co. 199 Ashland Street Everett, MA, 02149 United States (map)

Sam Reid and the Riot Act is an American roots and bluegrass band of the un-pure variety, with plenty of flatpicking and three-part harmonies punctuated by driving drums and Caribbean rhythms. The band delivers their own brand of live acoustic music influenced and continually inspired by traditional Irish/Scottish/Appalachian fiddle tunes and the rhythms of the vast Caribbean Sea. Sam grew up flatpicking bluegrass guitar outside of Boston and joined up with Johnny Ransom while the two were members of country/punk outfit Three Day Threshold. Gettysburg, PA's own John Campbell holds it all together with hypnotizing drums which make it nearly impossible not to stomp yer feet.
