Clonmel Junction Festival: Crash Ensemble and Sam Amidon

Saturday, 8 July 2017

For this event Crash Ensemble will be joined by American folk artist Sam Amidon, who reworks traditional folk melodies into striking new forms very much his own. Amidon is known as having introduced folk music to the indie-scene. This event is a sublime mix of Crash Ensemble’s sensibilities, together with Nico Muhly’s arrangements and Amidon’s inimitable voice. Not to be missed! He cast out demons in a strange incantation dance on stage… and was generally awesome. His voice has a brittle, smooth, American twang it’s hard not to like. Brilliant, brilliant gig. - Nialler9
