LSO St Luke's
Sam Amidon has been recording for over a decade and playing music for twenty years before that, despite only being 32. Raised in Vermont, but now based in London, Amidon has collaborated with composer Nico Muhly and Beth Orton, toured with New York pianist Thomas Barlett (aka Doveman) and embarked on a series of live shows with guitarist Bill Frisell.
He is presenting his Nonesuch release Bright Sunny South, which he describes as a ‘lonesome record’ and in which he reworks classic folk songs, country ballads and shape-note hymns. A fearless singer and multi-instrumentalist, he also takes on pop hits by the likes of Mariah Carey and Tim McGraw, challenging what folk can be.
Benjamin Clementine will open the evening. He replaces Tiny Ruins, who is no longer supporting.
