    Amidon sounds equally curious about the songs he picked up from his parents as he is about those he picked up from the radio; so naturally, juxtaposition plays a huge role in this album.

    The track [“Weeping Mary”] isn’t as simple as it seems, yet it works nicely as just-a-folk-song, the sort of approach that Amidon’s been refining for a decade now. Bright Sunny South is full of these unhurried, easy moments, and succeeds because of it.

    What he does well here, and has always done well, is to embody traditional music; its harmony, its lyrical themes, and at the same time imbue the music with a vitality that never feels forced or disrespectful of its roots.
