Wednesday 9 November | BRISTOL St George’s 
Thursday 10 November | COVENTRY Warwick Arts Centre 
Friday 11 November | LONDON Queen Elizabeth Hall 
Saturday 12 November | MANCHESTER RNCM

The experimental folk musician has recently enjoyed success with albums The Following Mountain and Sam Amidon, which brought the fresh energy and layered textures of folk to life

Sam has developed his own strong style as a singer and multi-instrumentalist through reworkings of traditional songs, original material, and collaborations with jazz mavericks such as Bill Frisell.

‘Amidon’s spry banjo and sky-blue voice give this music a gentle centre, light on ego or affectation’
(Uncut, 8/10)

‘A delight. An ethereal, electronica-tinged journey through the traditional repertoire’
(Sunday Times, Albums of the Year)

‘Amidon, the radical recombinator of traditional folk music, has concocted a delightfully diabolical set of experiments. He transforms familiar Appalachian songs, murder ballads and novelty tunes into new weird ditties imbued with their own compelling power, characters and charm’
(★★★★★ Songlines, Albums of the Year)

Mandolinist, singer, and songwriter Chris Thile, who the Guardian calls 'that rare being: an all-round musician who can settle into any style, from bluegrass to classical' and NPR calls a 'genre-defying musical genius', is a founding member of the critically acclaimed bands Punch Brothers and Nickel Creek.
