Sam McKinney

From August 14, 3:00 pm until 4:30 pm

Native son, Sam McKinney, is a talented singer and guitarist from Spruce Pine NC, whose repertoire includes a dynamic mix of traditional and contemporary music. His captivating voice and guitar styles immediately engage the audience and leave them wanting more (and they usually get what they ask for—more). His music is energetic and fun, sometimes quiet and unassuming. Join him on for an hour and a half of toes tapping, eyes welling, and mouth lip-syncing the words.
