Sam Amidon & Bill Frisell Perform "Blue Mountains," "Pat Do This, Pat Do That," & "Short Life"

From across the border in Brattleboro, Vermont is the young multi-instrumentalist genius who "takes traditional music and makes it his own."
    He might begin with a traditional murder ballad and then morph it into something of his own, fueled by Bill Frisell's languidly atmospheric guitar, Shahzad Ismaily's minimal but essential percussion and Amidon's own yearning voice. At other times, Amidon weaves his own new tunes into worn, weary, seemingly ageless sagas.
