Irresistible melodies, joyful improvisation, and otherworldly sounds collide in what Songlines Magazine has dubbed a “mash-up of the Klezmatics, Quintette du Hot Club de France, and the Punch Brothers.” 

Led by Latin Grammy-nominated accordionist, pianist, and composer Sam Reider, The Human Hands features some of the brightest names in bluegrass and jazz. 

This summer, the group returns to the Spiegeltent to perform music from their new album, The Golem and Other Tales (released June 2024), which combines elements of gypsy jazz, bluegrass, and chamber music. The album features an original suite of music based on the medieval Jewish legend of the golem, a magical clay man who is brought to life.
