    The Blue of the Night with Carl Corcoran

    The Blue of the Night connects different musical landscapes - a musical journey through centuries, genres and soundscapes.

    Blue Tunes

    All this week on Blue we'll be listening to highlights from Sam Amidon's performance at the Antigel festival in Geneva last February. His fine folk pedigree, subtle interpretations of old tunes and his own beautifully crafted songs make him an artist forging a new path on the folk trail. He sings, plays banjo, guitar and fiddle and has carved out a successful career that spans the spectrum from folk to contemporary. This is a Eurosonic Partnership with the EBU Satelite Network - we'll link up for a couple of tune each night on the Blue. Sam Amidon Live nightly - starting at 10.
