Sam Lardner's Bio

Sam Lardner & Barcelona is everything that a cross-cultural musical experience should be: artists from different traditions meeting in a place where everyone shines brighter. And the world needs this sort of collaboration now more than ever. At 43 years old, Sam is a seasoned veteran of the American folk and acoustic tradition. He has performed throughout the U.S. as a solo act, and he has led a smoking hot country band around Europe for the past 7 years. His voice and writing are reminiscent of James Taylor in the most intimate moments, although he is often compared to John Denver when he allows his voice to soar and electrify. Sam’s guitar playing is power driven and provides the energy and pulse around which his band, Barcelona, revolves.

Barcelona is artist by artist a brilliant group. Guitarist, Pedro Javier Hermosilla, is a Spanish top 40 artist in his own right. Javier Martin is considered the best flamenco bass player of his generation, famous for his virtuosity and soloing ability. Juan Flores is the popular favorite of every crowd with his deep intensity on percussion, and his final cajon solo on “When Morning Comes” is quite possibly the most eagerly awaited moment of every live show. Sandra Ortega and Yasmina Azlor add richness, depth and authenticity with their syncopated hand clapping and beautiful vocal harmonies. Spanish fans wonder at Sam’s ability to slide in and out of traditional flamenco structures in the same way that American audiences are wowed by Barcelona’s ability to jump back and forth between latin rhythms and pure funk. This is an all-star act!
