Sam Amidon returns to New York City to perform with a super special & most powerful Album Release concert at Le Poisson Rouge on May 16. He will be celebrating his Nonesuch debut, “Bright Sunny South,” which is released on May 14. He will be joined by the multi-instrumentalist band of clandestine itinerants with whom he recorded the album (Thomas Bartlett, Shahzad Ismaily, Chris Vatalaro) as well as certain top-secret & special guests. This is his first full-scale band performance in New York City since the release of his previous album I See The Sign in 2010, although he has recently graced NYC stages as part of Doveman’s Burgundy Stain sessions, in duo with Bill Frisell, and in collaboration with Nico Muhly, Beth Orton and others. He can’t wait. Check it-

Vermont-born singer and fiddle/banjo/guitar player Sam Amidon re-imagines traditional songs from the public domain, as well as the occasional contemporary pop song, and rearranges them into his own unique and mesmerizing compositions. Blending elements of folk, bluegrass, jazz, Americana and more, Amidon’s “highly personal approach opens a window on the American past and lets us feel it like nothing else around.” (NPR).
