I'm a retired photographer and have worked several events where Sam Hawkins played. Sometimes he was accompanied by another musician, other times it was just Sam and his guitar. All of those events were at the Executive Mansion in Frankfort over the last 10 years. Sam comes from a musical family and has been playing since he was a kid. He is an experienced player. Moreover, he has a welcoming personality and does well with everyone he meets, because it comes naturally to him.
Mr. Hawkins is a distinguished instrumental guitarist, a person of highest professional standards and a outstanding person.
You will not be disappointed when hiring Sam Hawkins for your next event. His beautiful music entertained everyone and at the same time blended right in with the atmosphere of the event. Thank you, Sam Hawkins!
The man can play! Very accomplished guitarist and his skills are unmatched.
I have heard Sam play many times, including memorial services honoring crime victims. Sam is extremely talented! Always a great pleasure to hear his music!
I first met Sam when we worked together. I brought in my Jumbo Epiphone acoustic, he played so well I nearly gave up guitar. He has a long history as a musician, a prominent band from my era to his credit. I recommend him highly. Professional, courteous, a sure fire hit.
As a vocalist it is very difficult to find a skilled accompanist. Sam is not only an outstanding solo instrumentalist, he is a top notch accompanist.
