Our favourite song-troubadour-de-luxe’s 6th visit to AB
19:00 doors - DJ Een Gevogeld Bekdier
21:00 Sam Amidon
Laucan - the support act - were the best surprise of the night. Soothing, haunting, gentle mix from this South London trio. Lovely cello and slide guitar... and the most extraordinary vocals. Loved "Off the Old Kent Road" and the sweet birdsong woven into another number. Good luck to all three for the future and go see them another time if you missed them on Saturday! ...and Sam Amidon's rich American mix was great fun too of course!
Geweldig concert van een authentiek artiest, met een indrukwekkende muzikale bagage en zonder kapsones. Overigens nooit gedacht dat ik Nick Drake nog een keer life zou mogen meemaken... in sommige nummers komen de stem en de open tunings van Sam heel dicht bij hem. Er zijn slechtere voorbeelden... Als hij nog een keer langs komt, wij ook!
‘It is my first album of original music, but is still linked to the Appalachian music I love, as well as improvisation, beats, Don Cherry, Vermont, London.’ says Sam Amidon of his brand new album ‘The Following Mountain’. Just as with his two previous releases, he received the support of the famous Nonesuch label that took the likes of Fleet Foxes and Liana Lahavas under their wing.

IN THE PRESS
‘What distinguishes Amidon from the pack of folk revivalists is that he not only has an impressively deep knowledge of traditional song forms, but takes liberties with the country's past in order to document his own personal present.’ (Pitchfork)
Sam Amidon was, just like Ben Frost and Nico Muhly, a part of the Icelandic ‘Bedroom Community’ collective. They appeared together on stage in AB in 2009.
