WUMB Live At the Burren – Samantha Farrell

Our series of LIVE broadcasts from The Burren in Somerville continued last week with singer/songwriter Samantha Farrell. Sam is a local artist whose voice drips with soul and emotion…she truly draws you in with her unique sound. I got a chance to talk to her before she took the stage, and I was excited to learn more about her latest album, September Sun. Turns out she bought a quality microphone and recorded a lot of it in her shoe closet! She also told me that the album was directly inspired by autumn in New England, so it makes sense that it’s got the perfect vibe for this time of year. Sam had a bunch of killer local musicians join her on stage to recreate her new songs, and she threw in some fun tunes from her earlier albums too.

For me, it felt like another night of live radio magic…complete with a mad dash to make it to the venue on time in the traffic and the rain! Big thanks to Tom Bianchi for making things happen at The Burren, I know he’s just as excited about these live broadcasts as we are. Props to Jay Moberg for making it sound flawless back at the station, and to our engineer Grady Moates for making the technical setup so streamlined and problem-free.

We’ve got more to come!
