Help us welcome Sam Robbins for the first time to our ACMA stage! Sam Robbins is often described as an “old soul singer songwriter.” A Nashville based musician whose music evokes classic 70’s singer songwriters like James Taylor and Neil Young, Sam adds a modern, upbeat edge to the storyteller troubadour persona. An avid performer, he has gained recognition from extensive touring and as one of the six 2021 winners in the Kerrville Folk Festival New Folk competition, one of the largest and most prestigious songwriting competitions in the country.
Sam released his debut album, Finally Feeling Young, on May 14th, 2021. The album is reminiscent of his 70’s singer-songwriter heroes, with a modern perspective. On the heels of the award winning opening single, ‘Remind Me”, Finally Feeling Young has already garnered radio airplay and critical acclaim. Two album tracks, Remind Me and Saying Amen, won him a place as one of the six Kerrville Folk Festival New Folk winners. Americana Highways writes: “He writes of subjects that others don’t explore. Saying Amen has Robbins touching that special place Leonard Cohen went. This is brilliance.” Fateau Magazine in the UK writes “One of the most promising new songwriters of his generation”.
Sam is a full time troubadour, playing over 150 shows a year across the country, including the MainStage at the Kerrville Folk Festival, Dripping Springs Songwriter’s Festival, and as one of the “‘Most Wanted to Return” artists in the 2023 Falcon Ridge Folk Festival.
Sam considers himself a student of songwriting, constantly searching and learning about why songs have the impact they do. A 2019 graduate of Berklee College of Music’s songwriting department, he has hosted many songwriting workshops and masterclasses, including at the Harvard Music Department and the Boys & Girls Club of Boston. In his performances and workshops, Sam explores the magic behind the craft of songwriting, and tries to help others express themselves through the unique and powerful medium of songwriting.

ACMA member, singer/songwriter and board member, Bob Williams will open for Sam Robbins. Bob started writing songs at an early age and never stopped. He has released four solo albums since 2015. He plays regularly in Southwest Florida and in Western North Carolina. He performs and writes Americana Music, a mix of Roots, Folk, Country, Bluegrass, Blues and all the good stuff in-between.
Always eager to share amusing stories behind his lyrics, Bob’s songs are personal, irreverent, funny, sad, and most important, true to his heart. Bob’s songs and performance have recently been described by the local paper in Fort Myers as a mix of Neil Young and Crazy Horse, and solo acoustic Bruce Springsteen. That may be a stretch, but Bob does perform and writes with all his heart. All of Bob’s music is on his web site and available to listen or download for free at:
