Sam 'n Ash
Accordionist Samantha Harvey and mandolinist Ashley Hoyer bring new life to their traditional folk instruments. The duo met in Ventura, California, where they formed their distinct style performing at festivals, concerts, and wineries. An accessible and sought-after blend of genres, their music has been featured on the wildly popular podcast “Welcome to Night Vale.”
Their first full-length album Echo Summit explores the outer reaches of the duo’s sonic possibilities. Although they may bring classic melodies to the table, their treatment of them is anything but traditional. Where this duo really shines is in its original writing. Both Sam and Ash come from backgrounds of time-honored folk styles; however, their original work is an amalgamation of their influences as 21st century folk musicians.
