Sam Amidon Australian Tour January 2012

Written by Brayden Darke on December 1, 2011

Sam Amidon has announced an Australian tour in January on the back of his support shows with Beth Oroton and Sydney Festival appearance. Bringing a calm vocal to his work, along with a vast collection of instrumental talent, Sam puts folk classics in a new light.

Born and raised in Brattleboro, Vermont by folk musicians Peter and Mary Alice Amidon, he has released three albums of radically re-worked folksongs: But This Chicken Proved Falsehearted, in 2006; All Is Well in 2008; and, most recently, I See The Sign in 2010, recorded in Iceland with producer Valgeir Sigurðsson.

Sam Amidon is currently London-based and finishing work on a new album.
