The year was 1979 the place was Blyth ON when Sam Malkin had one of his first gigs and appeared on the Blyth stage in Child and This Foreign Land. It was such a success that the festival had to have Sam back in 2010 for Pearl Gidley and The Killing Snow. Between those dates Sam has appeared on stages from Vancouver to Montreal, from Winnipeg to Regina. Doing a variety of shows from Greek tragedy to Canadian comedy. Shows of note were Jitters, La Cumunion Victoria Station, Eternal Hydra. Sam has also been in TV and film, ranging from: VideoDrome to Old Fashioned Thanksgiving. Much appreciation to Blyth Festival.
