For the "Signature" project, Sam Amidon has invited a very special guest for his band. In addition to Chris Vatalaro and Shahzad Ismaily, the US avant-garde guitarist and composer Marc Ribot will also be on stage.
With him, Sam Amidon brings an "all-American original" to Monheim, who has not only played with Sam Amidon, Tom Waits and John Zorn, but has also just published a current book "Unstrung: Rants and Stories of a Noise Guitarist", about which Elvis Costello writes: "Like life itself, this book is bloody, funny, and bloody funny." Shahzad Ismaily is still well remembered: he has already inspired on "The Prequel" and also plays in Ribot's "Ceramic Dog" trio. Chris Vatalaro has already supported Sam on recordings and played with Angelique Kidjo and Brian Eno, among others. The combination promises to be a New Western and folk fest.
