    Watch: Sam Amidon Featured on 'PBS NewsHour Weekend'
    PBS NewsHour Weekend

    Sam Amidon was the subject of a profile on PBS NewsHour Weekend. "Amidon has developed a shining reputation for taking something very old and making it sound brand new," says host Hari Sreenivasan. Amidon talks with special correspondent Tom Casciato about his career in music, from his earliest days immersed in the music of his performer parents (both members of Word of Mouth Chorus, which recorded the album Rivers of Delight on Nonesuch Records) to his new self-titled album, released last year on Nonesuch. You can watch their conversation and a web-exclusive performance for the show of the album track "Maggie" below.
