This is what happens when folks go into the bedroom together…
Sam Amidon, Valgeir Sigurðsson and Crash Ensemble perform a late night concert as part of Sounds from a Safe Harbour, a festival curated by The National’s Bryce Dessner.
Sam Amidon has released four solo albums, and also lent his talents to New York-based indie-rock bands Doveman and Stars Like Fleas. After a seven-year stint in New York City, Amidon has been fully itinerant since 2008, touring and collaborating with a roster of renowned musicians, including Shahzad Ismaily, Nico Muhly, Thomas Bartlett, Ben Frost, and Valgeir Sigurðsson.
The Vermont multi-instrumentalist is also a talented video artist and comic drawer; rising to acclaim as a fiddler and since gliding through an unlikely set of genres from traditional folk to free jazz. His work has shown in the galleries Kuhturm in Leipzig, Audio Visual Arts in New York City, and in a multimedia performance at New York’s Museum of Art and Design.
