Sam Leopold: A Troubadour Survives in the Age of Spin by Frank Beacham It is perhaps fitting that I first saw Sam Leopold on stage in a small club on Bleecker Street in New York City's Greenwich Village. It being the first decade of the 21st century, Leopold's performance that night was about as close as I could get to reliving the glory days of the troubadours who played on these same streets during the folk music revival of the 1960s. Yet, from the first moment Leopold hit the stage, it was clear that this was no oldies revival. Here is a performer who commands attention. He projects a force field of fierce independence. I felt it in the first sounds from his guitar-a subtext of prickly attitude that tells you this is a man who is serious about his music and incapable of subservience to the whims of commercial fashion. This night on Bleecker Street I had plugged into the grand tradition of the troubadour, a resilient musical genre that dates back to the 13th century and shows no signs of losing it's relevance in a musical culture increasingly driven by synthesized pop diversions. The troubadour survives through the deliverance of timeless stories that reflect the human condition. As with the best of his predecessors, Sam Leopold is a seeker whose songs are derived from the wellspring of his own life and experiences. His songs cover every topic, from love and war, to supermarkets and an old canoe. (Not to mention an amazing crowd pleaser about nothing...that's right, nothing at all.) Leopold's performances on Bleecker Street are as relevant and fresh in 2005 as were those in 1962 of one of his great influences, Bob Dylan. Of course, the powerful aura of the singer-songwriter-a healer of hearts-is a tradition as old as humans. However, it's not a profession for the faint of heart. Those who truly move us through this solitary art form go far beyond the simple telling of stories in song. They are the visionaries who dig deep into their own lives and experiences to create the metaphors that help us bring perspective to our own lives. Sam Leopold is such a visionary. A deep diver of the human soul, he's learned to create a huge metaphorical mirror that reflects our hidden needs and desires in ways we often can detect in the hurly-burly of modern life. Though he was born in Philadelphia and raised in the blues tradition of Chicago, Leopold is truly a man of the world. He has lived and performed on the streets and in the nightclubs of many of the countries of Europe and in Israel. In later years, he lived in Japan and Australia before returning to his current home near New York City. Given his first guitar at age 11, Leopold's earliest musical encounters came from the random choices of his mother after she made a monthly six record commitment to the mail order Columbia Record Club. "My mother didn't know music, so she would just close her eyes and randomly check off records," he recalled, noting that Columbia introduced him to the likes of Frank Sinatra, Eddie Duchin, Benny Goodman and his first taste of jazz. One record, Louis Armstrong's Satch Plays Fats: The Music of Fats Waller became a lifelong favorite. But it was his older sister's boyfriend, a blues fan, that set the young Leopold on fire. "He turned me on to Big Bill Broonzy and I became a fanatic. I spent hours listening to Broonzy records. There was such joy in his singing. He could sing the blues, yet make you so happy at the same time. That led me to Blind Willie McTell, Mance Lipscom, Merle Travis, Charlie Paton, Lemon Jefferson, and Blind Blake...guitar players with a syncopated thumb. I copied their playing through sheer repetition. If I could make my thumb bounce over the bass strings a million times or more I figured it would start to work by itself so I could concentrate on my other fingers." At 13, another creative explosion hit Leopold: the release of Bob Dylan's first album. The realization hit that he, like Dylan, could write and perform his own songs. And, just as Dylan himself had discovered a few years earlier from the same influences, making one's o
