Red & Shorty's is honored to welcome back, Sam Baker.
Sam Baker’s music and story have been shared by some of the most prestigious media outlets in the world-NPR’s Fresh Air with Terry Gross, Rolling Stone Magazine, The Wall Street Journal, and numerous others. He is a true artist in every way, sharing amazing life experiences through music, story, and art.
Baker’s story includes surviving devastating injuries from a terrorist bomb on a bus bound for Machu Picchu, Peru in 1986. Most of the passengers were killed, including the German family that he had befriended. His injuries required him to relearn how to walk, move, and speak. Many years and over 15 operations later, Baker sees beauty in everything around him and expresses his new-found life every day, sometimes with paint and canvas, or a camera, and sometimes with a guitar and song.
