About Sam Reider
Sam Reider is a pianist, accordionist, composer, and educator from San Francisco, California. His work brings together various streams of American music, from jazz and folk tunes to popular song and contemporary composition.
At Columbia University in New York City, he majored in American Studies and fell in love with folk music. Representing the U.S. Department of State as a musical ambassador, Sam has travelled to China, Laos, Cambodia, Myanmar, Vietnam, Estonia, Turkey and Azerbaijan, collaborating with international artists.
Some of Sam Reider’s albums include Too Hot to Sleep (2018) and The Human Hands EP (2020). Reider has performed and recorded with a wide range of other artists including Grammy-nominated mandolinist Sierra Hull, legendary jazz composer David Amram, classical violinist Tessa Lark, Paquito D’Rivera, Jon Batiste and Stay Human, CDZA, T-Pain, Nellie McKay, Ranger Doug, Phoebe Hunt, the Brother Brothers, and many more.
A passionate educator, Reider has led performance-based workshops for thousands of students around the world.

As part of Jazz at Lincoln Center’s Jazz for Young People program, Reider has led educational performances at K-12 public schools in New York City, New Orleans, Chicago, Washington D.C., Memphis, Nashville, and Providence. A mainstay on the faculty of the Stanford Jazz Workshop, Reider develops and teaches courses every summer for middle and high school students about composition, theory, and American music. Reider moved home to San Francisco in late 2019, where he is currently pursuing a master’s degree in composition at San Francisco State University.
About The Human Hands
The Human Hands is a “staggeringly virtuosic” (RnR Magazine) ensemble of acoustic musicians originally based in Brooklyn, NY. Irresistible melodies, fiery improvisation and otherworldly sounds collide in what Songlines Magazine dubbed a "mash-up of the Klezmatics, Quintette du Hot Club de France and the Punch Brothers.” Following the release of Too Hot to Sleep (2018), the Human Hands appeared at Jazz at Lincoln Center, the Savannah Music Festival, Celtic Connections, and live on the BBC. The Human Hands include saxophonist Eddie Barbash (Jon Batiste and Stay Human), violinist Alex Hargreaves (Turtle Island Quartet, Live From Here), mandolinist Dominick Leslie (Hawktail, Ricky Skaggs), guitarist Roy Williams, and bassist Dave Speranza.
