SAM AMIDON TOUR DATES ANNOUNCED 

THE FOLLOWING MOUNTAIN OUT NOW ON NONESUCH RECORDS

New York, NY — August 8, 2017 — Experimental folk artist and composer Sam Amidon has announced new tour dates in support of his latest album, The Following Mountain. The tour is Amidon’s first in the US since 2015 and begins in Seattle on September 23 with additional stops in San Francisco, Los Angeles, Chicago, Toronto, Washington, D.C. and more before culminating in New York City on October 10. The US tour is followed soon-after by a European leg that includes performances in Stockholm, Copenhagen, Berlin, Paris, Dublin, Amsterdam and more, as well as Amidon’s first headlining performance at London’s Union Chapel on October 26. See below for complete tour details.

Out now on Nonesuch Records, The Following Mountain represents a new approach for Amidon. He shifts here from his previous norm of re-working traditional folk songs and presents nine wholly original compositions, with some lyrics drawing on traditional sources. Created with producer Leo Abrahams (Brian Eno, Regina Spektor) and Amidon’s frequent collaborator Shahzad Ismaily, the album features guest appearances by drummer Milford Graves, percussionist Juma 
Sultan and saxophonist Sam Gendel. It is Amidon’s sixth album and follows Lily-O, his 2014 Nonesuch Records collaboration with Bill Frisell.
