Peter + Sam Linnane


The Farewells are Peter and Sam Linnane, an acoustic duo in Boxborough, MA formed in 2001. They write songs that invoke the spirit of the forests and open spaces of their home, intertwined with heartache and the happy/sad poetry of life. Elements of old-time country, folk, Americana and pop form the backbone of strong melodies drenched with rich harmonic vocals, The Farewells strive to paint pictures of bright summers with a dark underbelly.

Peter Linnane is an accomplished and inventive producer, classically trained pianist, and recording engineer, mastering engineer and composer, appearing over the years on many albums including Peter Bruntnell, Don Lennon, The Willard Grant Conspiracy, and The Sheila Divine among others. He plays guitar, banjo, concertina, piano, accordion, pump organ, and bass.

Sam Linnane plays guitar and mandolin and is a painter with a studio at ArtSpace in Maynard, MA
