We hope you’ve all been enjoying the sunshine. We have a brilliant exclusive for you this month from guitarist and songwriter extraordinaire Sam Carter. Sam has shared with us a wonderful live recording from his gig at The Green Note and two videos for you to enjoy! Don’t forget you can download the audio on Bandcamp and check out the videos over on the club portal.
Over the course of his fifteen-year career, Sam Carter has earned a reputation for vivid, narrative-driven songwriting ‘as penetrating as Richard Thompson’s best work’ (Uncut). A highly regarded instrumentalist to boot, Sam is renowned by many as ‘the finest English-style fingerpicking guitarist of his generation’ (Jon Boden) and has been described as having a ‘killer voice’ by Ivor Novello- winning musician Nitin Sawhney. Sam has appeared on national TV, won a BBC Folk Award, and toured the world, sharing stages with some of folk’s leading lights, including Richard Thompson, Eliza Carthy, Martin Simpson and Nancy Kerr.
Recorded in spring 2022 on the album launch tour for his latest studio release Home Waters, Live At The Green Note captures Sam’s return to a favourite London venue for this intimate solo performance.
