Album Notes
Seven Stars is a mixture of Sam Patten's arrangement of traditional songs and tunes along with self penned songs written in his own traditional style.
Sam combines a percussive and very rhythmical bouzouki playing style with tender moments to create music that is both involving and lifting. From the opening track you can here the commitment to the integrity of the song's origin, bringing alive the feeling of being in the room with him. Even the self penned songs will slip by almost unnoticed, such is the tradition of the music so instilled in Sam's playing.
The arraignments were carefully constructed to feature the voice, the Bouzouki and his faithful stomp box, reflecting the way many have enjoyed his performances.
If you love traditional music then this one not to miss. If however, you are not familiar with the joys of traditional Folk music, then I suggest you get some ale in, turn up the music and see what you have been missing.

maybe another bouzouki
The approach is ambient alehouse folk. I get that and he is definitely in the room, across the table etc Sam has an unaffected vocal delivery and a strong rhythmic approach on the bouzouki. The songs are a great selection and fit easily into this style. As a fellow bouzouki player I have to say the solo bouzouki is always a tad thin however, no matter well its played. I grabbed my Yairi and a capo and played some notework over the tracks and it sounded like Planxty (in all modesty). Am happy to try that live Sam!
