Sam Roberts brings classical, Canadian rock to the Tractor

SamRobertsBy Chris Kornelis / Special to The Seattle Times

When Sam Roberts turned 4, his parents gave him an ultimatum: you have to play a musical instrument, but you can pick which one. He chose the violin.

While many students put down their bows as they gravitate to rock and roll, Roberts kept at it, even as his eponymous band became a going concern in his home country of Canada. He got married, had children, spent a substantial portion of his time on the road. Through it all, he continued to take lessons from the same teacher, Hratchia Sevadjian. He never really stopped.
