An Evening with Sam Amidon
Friday-Saturday, November 20, 8pm (sold-out)
**Just Added** Saturday, November 20, 10pm
Curated by Matthew Lyons
In this evening of solo musical performance, Sam Amidon presents his intuitive and often radical reworkings of secular ballads, gospel, folk songs, and hymns with interludes of disjunctive storytelling, field recordings, and video. With banjo, guitar, and his gentle, eerily deadpan vocals, Amidon gives voice to the love, hardship, and heartache in these age-old songs while interjecting his own open, improvisatory impulses in narrative and song structure. Drawing from his most recent album, I See The Sign (Bedroom Community), this evening also includes projections of his own hand-drawn cartoons and short videos.
This program is made possible with the support of Jerome Foundation. Music programs at The Kitchen receive generous support from The Amphion Foundation, the Mary Flagler Cary Charitable Trust, The Aaron Copland Fund for Music, and with public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs and the New York State Council on the Arts, a state agency.
