On Sam Amidon's self-titled album, which he produced and considers the fullest realization to date of his artistic vision, he performs radical reworkings of mostly traditional folk songs with his frequent band, multi-instrumentalist Shahzad Ismaily and drummer Chris Vatalaro, along with saxophonist and label mate Sam Gendel, guitarist Bert Cools, bassist Ruth Goller, and Amidon’s wife, Beth Orton, who adds vocals on three songs.

Singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist Sam Amidon is a contemporary folk musician who often peppers his albums with traditional tunes alongside his original compositions. (Two of his most celebrated releases, 2007's All Is Well and 2010's I See the Sign, were entirely comprised of folk standards, with the exception of one tune by R. Kelly on the latter.) Possessing a voice that's gentle but evocative, Amidon's style is usually spare and atmospheric, focusing on acoustic instruments and a style that insinuates rather than speaking boldly, though 2017's The Following Mountain found him branching out, writing all the material and working with veteran jazz musicians to create a darker and more experimental vision.

When Ancienne Belgique in Brussels, Belgium presented an exhibit honoring Harry Smith's groundbreaking collection The Anthology of American Folk Music, they invited Amidon to perform a concert devoted to songs from the set. Amidon and Shahzad Ismaily booked a two-day session in a London studio to record some of the songs they worked up for the event, resulting in a four-song EP, Fatal Flower Garden (A Tribute to Harry Smith), that was released in November 2019.
