Sam Amidon

released September 30, 2014

Lily-O, an album of reimagined folk songs by singer/fiddler/banjoist/guitarist Sam Amidon, was produced by Valgeir SigurĂ°sson and features jazz guitarist/composer Bill Frisell, a longtime hero of Amidon’s, along with Amidon’s other frequent collaborators, bassist Shahzad Ismaily and drummer Chris Vatalaro. The album “showcases his ability to transform music,” says NPR. “Every little unexpected twist shimmers with originality … His highly personal approach opens a window on the American past and lets us feel it like nothing else around.” The New York Times calls it “hauntingly beautiful.” MusicOMH calls it “gorgeous.”
