Sam Baker returns to Scotland on June 7, 2014 for a show at The Pleasance in Edinburgh, his first solo headline performance in the capital.

Texas-based Sam’s sell-out shows on his last two visits to Scotland emphasise his rising popularity – and this was re-inforced by the release this year of his fourth album, the glorious “Say Grace.”

His brilliant first three albums, “Pretty World,” “Mercy” and “Cotton” have been praised by the likes of BBC’s Bob Harris – and his fans in Scotland never fail to be won over by his emotional live sets.

Having survived a bomb blast in Peru, eight hours of life saving surgery followed by a series of reconstructive operations, lasting hearing difficulties and learning how to play left-handed because of the injury to his right hand, Sam has a real personal story to tell – and it comes out in his heartfelt lyrics.

Of his last gig September, 2013 in Glasgow, the Americana-UK website reviewer, Mike Ritchie, wrote: “It was one that sparkled and tugged at the heartstrings: so let there be praise for the man.”
