Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Born in 1981 and raised in Vermont by folk-musician parents, Sam Amidon's albums are Solo Fiddle (2001), But This Chicken Proved Falsehearted (2007), All Is Well (2008) and I See The Sign (2010). About I See The Sign, Pitchfork magazine said "He has managed to meld the rural and the urban, the organic and the synthetic, the oral tradition and the written score;" and in response to All Is Well Rolling Stone said that "In an era of overheated Nick Drake comparisons, Amidon is eerily close to the real thing." Sam frequently collaborates with producer Valgeir Sigurdsson, Thomas Bartlett, Shahzad Ismaily, Beth Orton and Nico Muhly, for whom Sam premiered the piece Two Sisters at Carnegie Hall in 2009. Having been based in New York for the last 10 years, he went through a phase of itinerancy and now spends a lot of time in London. His last NYC appearance was his November '10 solo show "Home Alone Inside My Head" at The Kitchen. Whenever it gets to be around October, Sam misses Vermont - maybe he'll get to go back there next Autumn, that would be nice!
