Nonesuch Records releases Sam Amidon on October 23. The album, which Sam Amidon considers the fullest realisation to date of his artistic vision, comprises his radical reworkings of nine mostly traditional folk songs, performed by Amidon and his band of longtime friends and collaborators. Amidon produced the record, applying the sonic universe of his 2017 The Following Mountain to these beloved tunes, many of which he first learned as a child. Pretty Polly, for example, was one of the first traditional tunes he learned to play, and Time Has Made a Change is a song that his parents – singers who were on the 1977 Nonesuch recording Rivers of Delight with the Word of Mouth Chorus – sang around the house when he was young. Further details, along with pre-orders and an album track, will be available in early September.
‘A folk/bluegrass troubadour from Vermont who delves into shape-note traditions and Appalachian ballads and makes it all beguilingly his own. His guitar lines have the fancy fingerwork of a crack banjo player and his banjo lines have the tugging suspensions of a jazzer.’ Guardian
