Sam Amidon considers his self-titled album the fullest realization to date of his artistic vision. The album comprises of his radical reworkings of nine mostly traditional folk songs, performed with his band of longtime friends and collaborators. Amidon produced the record, applying the sonic universe of his 2017 release 'The Following Mountain' to these beloved tunes, many of which he first learned as a child. 'Pretty Polly,' for example, was one of the first traditional tunes he learned to play, and 'Time Has Made A Change' is a song that his parents - singers who were on the 1977 Nonesuch recording 'Rivers of Delight' with the Word of Mouth Chorus - sang around the house when he was young.
