In the decades which book-ended the turn of our century, Sam Allison embraced the music over which he had obsessed since his childhood. He dwelled in the cradles of their conception and birth. The Carolinas, the Mississippi Valley, West Virginia, Kentucky, Scotland, Wales, England and Ireland fed him the sounds of tradition that helped to form his musical life.
Sam has been nominated for the Canadian Folk Music Award and JUNO for his work as producer of records for Sheesham and Lotus, Lotus Wight and Jenny Whiteley as well as music for television and film.
When Sam was a young child, he puzzled his parents by speaking in a broad Brooklyn accent until the age of six years old.
