The Sylvester Manor Educational Farm will once again host their third edition of their 2019 concert series on Saturday, May 11. Headliners Sam Reider and the Human Hands will perform two shows in the intimate setting of the Music Room of the historic Shelter Island Manor House.

The Human Hands is an ensemble of talented musicians based in Brooklyn, led by composer, accordionist and pianist Sam Reider. Since the release of their debut album Too Hot to Sleep in early 2018, the band has appeared at major festivals throughout the US, performed live on the BBC and completed a ten-day tour of the UK. Their 2019 season includes headline performances at the Savannah Music Festival and Jazz at Lincoln Center and of course, the Music Room at Sylvester Manor.

The evening will feature irresistible melodies, fiery improvisation and otherworldly sounds. Songlines Magazine has dubbed the band "a mash-up of the Klezmatics, Quintette du Hot Club de France and the Punch Brothers." This "staggeringly virtuosic band" (RnR Magazine) includes Alex Hargreaves on violin, Eddie Barbash on saxophone, Dominic Leslie on mandolin, Grant Gordy on guitar and Dave Speranza on bass. Listen to the band performing by visiting www.youtube.com.

Tickets to Sam Reider & The Human Hands are $30 in advance and $35 at the door. This is a limited-seating event, so buying tickets early is recommended. Concerts will take place at 6 p.m. and 8 p.m.

Sylvester Manor Education Farm is located at 80 North Ferry Road on Shelter Island. For more information and to purchase tickets call 631-749-0626 or visit www.sylvestermanor.org.
