Sam Amidon Re-Imagines Folk With Jazz Guitarist Bill Frisell


Sam Amidon is a music recycler. He takes older songs, folk songs, and makes them into his own music thru rearrangement and sensitive performance. Originally from Vermont where his parents were folk musicians he now lives in London. Some of Sam’s re-imaginings come close to his other musical love, free jazz . He is joined on his new album Lily-O by the guitarist Bill Frisell. Both of these fine musicians are the studio today. The interaction and the conversation flows freely.
