SAM AMIDON (US)
Thursday 05.07.12 - 19:45 - Gloria
The American song treasury is a chest loaded with rubies, jewels and pure gold.
With ukulele and acoustic guitar as the only accompaniment, Sam Amidon interprets and renews old folk songs and hymns. Only occasionally you get to hear songs by artists such as R. Kelly or Tears For Fears. This New Yorker has promoted a rich music heritage to a new generation.
Experience how rustic songs with the right interpreter can quiver of longing, loneliness and raw wisdom of life as if the ink in the songbook was still wet.

Band schedule is ready in May
Roskilde Festival releases the time schedule in May, if everything works out at least somewhat according to plan.
We don’t do it until then to make the best schedule possible for our audience. When we, for various reasons, are forced to make changes late in the process, we have a better chance at putting together a programme that considers both the spreading of genres, the performer's touring plans and safety at the festival.
