Live at Lakeview welcomes Sam Chase & The Untraditional

The Sam Chase likes the way the ink bleeds.

Sam Chase & The Untraditional hail from San Francisco will treat Live at Lakeview concertgoers on Thursday to some “kick-ass folk” music.

The Sam Chase has performed at High Sierra Music Festival, Outside Lands, Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival, Kate Wolf Music Festival and many other West Coast festivals and events. He has been voted Best Songwriter in the SF Bay Guardian.

Sam Chase “has a voice like a nun on the lam with a mouthful of cigarettes and curse words in a lonely bar, drunkenly dancing next to a broken jukebox.” His backing band “descended from Norse warriors known as The Beserkers. Old Norse literature and historians note that Beserkers fought with an uncontrollable, trance-like fury…” Seriously, folks, this band could sing with the choir (maybe a lively, Baptist sort of choir).

Opener Patrick Walsh (4:30 p.m.)  is a prolific one-man band, hailing from Placerville and often entertaining crowds in South Lake Tahoe. If something goes wrong on stage, he has no one to blame but himself. If you hear singing, guitar, drum and cymbal, harmonica and a trumpet — but see only one dude onstage — it’s probably Walsh. He’s been playing music from a young age and doing so professionally for more than a decade. Unlike most area musicians, Walsh plays exclusively original music, which he sees as part of his draw.

“Overall, I have a lot of different sounds. But some of my more hillbilly stuff just seems to make people happy and want to dance and makes little kids dance. It seems to make people feel good,” Walsh told Tahoe Onstage.
