    Sam Amidon: Sept 29th - Oct 5th 

    He draws on the traditional but he is decidedly contemporary. Vermont born folk singer Sam Amidon has a new album out this week.  “Lily-O” features the innovative jazz guitarist  Bill Frisell – hear tracks from it along with some of  his back catalogue. Sam is our Blue Tunes artist this week – nightly at 10.
