Bill Frisell & Sam Amidon
To quote their own email, "singer, and multi-instrumentalist (banjo, fiddle, guitar) Sam Amidon and guitar pioneer Bill Frisell will be unveiling a new duo collaboration with a string of Northeast US Tour Dates in March." That short tour kicked off two nights ago, hit CT & VT so far, and arrives back in NYC for two unmissable shows at Le Poisson Rouge TONIGHT (3/21). Tickets are still on sale for EARLY and LATE. All dates are listed below.
These shows may be a new collaboration, but they aren't the first time these two artists have shared a stage. On May 25, 2011 they played at Ludwigsburger Schlossfestspiele in Ludwigsburg, Germany as "Sam Amidon & Bill Frisell's Beautiful Dreamers." The beautiful song "Saro" in this post was recorded at that gig. Download it above, or stream it below...
