Sam Amidon

‘Amidon is a rare Americana artist [whose] … signature banjo-strewn style … and disparate mix of influences play into a sound that is at once archaically rootsy and savvily refined.’ Wall Street Journal

‘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


Sam Amidon is a singer-fiddler-banjoist-guitarist originally hailing from Vermont, US.

He has released six solo albums on the Nonesuch and Bedroom Community labels, most recently 2017’s ‘The Following Mountain’. Amidon’s material for these albums often consists of adventurous reworkings of traditional American ballads, hymns and work songs. The albums have been deeply collaborative in nature, inviting contributions from musicians such as composer Nico Muhly, guitarist Bill Frisell, and trumpeter Kenny Wheeler.

Sam has also recorded or performed as a guest artist with musicians such as Bon Iver, Emmylou Harris, Tune-Yards, Pekka Kuusisto, and Amidon’s wife Beth Orton. He has also appeared as a soloist performing with ensembles such as the Kronos Quartet, the Australian Chamber Orchestra, and the Aurora Orchestra, among others.
