Monday Music: Sam Amidon “Climbing High Mountains.”

seesignIt’s been a while since we’ve done a Monday Music post. Sorry about that! We’ll have them back up and running now.

It’s cloudy today in Arkansas, and this song from Sam Amidon seems perfect for this late afternoon.  It’s track 9 off his recently released fourth album, I See the Sign.

Amidon is known for his deconstruction of old folk songs, pasting the pieces together like a mosaic. This album is no exception. For this album he explores the music of Bessie Smith, among many others.
