Music in the Nave Starts Saturday

KENT—Music in the Nave opens its season Saturday with Sam Reider & the Human Hands, a group of young bluegrass, jazz, and acoustic musicians that The New York Times described as “Modern folk music with saxophone and accordion.” 

Reider is a pianist, accordionist, composer and educator from San Francisco, Calif. His work brings together various streams of American music, from jazz and folk tunes to popular song and contemporary composition. 

He has appeared as a bandleader and soloist at major festivals and venues around the world and his performances and original compositions have been featured on NPR, PBS and the BBC. Reider has performed, recorded and collaborated with a range of artists including Jon Batiste, Jorge Glem, Sierra Hull, Laurie Lewis and Paquito d’Rivera. 

His 2022 solo piano record of original music, Petrichor, received four stars and made the Best of 2022 in Downbeat Magazine. Reider and Glem’s album, Brooklyn-Cumaná, is currently nominated for Best Instrumental Album in the 2023 Latin GRAMMY Awards, which take place Nov. 16. 

The Music in the Nave concert will be presented Saturday at 8 p.m. at St. Andrew’s Parish, 1 North Main St. Tickets are $20 and are available on Eventbrite and at the door.
