 Sam Lemann and His Trio

Join Sam Leman & His Trio for a selection of sweet sounds from the pre-amplified days, featuring the ukulele, mandolin and vintage jazz guitar.

Sam Leman & His Trio will perform at the Grainger Museum in conjunction with Instrument of Change: Visions of the Guitar in the Early Twentieth Century. This exhibition delves into the guitar’s varied contexts, from the BMG (Banjo, Mandolin, Guitar) movement of the late Victorian era to Hispanic, Pacific and North American guitar traditions up to the 1930s. It reveals how Percy Grainger engaged with the guitar through these traditions, embracing the instrument as both performer and composer. The exhibition also includes some rare and beautiful instruments on-loan from a private collection.
