New York folk troubadour Sam Amidon has some upcoming shows, mostly this week and in NYC. Tonight (May 7), Sam plays that super expensive St. Ann's Warehouse gala that you may have noticed in "What's Going on Monday". Tuesday, 5/8, Sam plays for the common people back at Manhattan club Rockwood Music Hall where he'll be joined by fellow Doveman band member Shahzad Ismaily "and guests". Tickets are on sale for that show, and we have two pair you can win. Details below.
Doveman's Thomas Bartlett also happens to be the musical director of the St Ann's show where Sam will be part of the pit band in addition to performing solo and with Bill Frisell and Emmylou Harris. You may remember Sam played some shows with Bill back in March. Check out a couple videos from those shows, along with all (three) dates and contest details below...
