Les Sampou concert

Les Sampou performs at the New Moon Coffeehouse in Haverhill on Saturday at 8 pm.

Sampou can’t be categorized. Rock, blues, country, folk — her music is a sum of them all and a genre all her own. But her themes are universal: love, heartbreak, hellos and goodbyes. Should be a great show.

The coffeehouse is located in the Universalist Unitarian Church, 16 Ashland St. Admission to the show is $20; $10 for those ages 18 and under. Tickets are available at the door starting around 6:30. Tickets may be reserved prior to the show by visiting www.newmooncoffeehouse.org or by calling 978-459-5134.
