Carter Sampson burst onto the European Americana scene with the release of her album ‘Wilder Side’ in 2016 and the six follow up tours within the year of release. She’s making that seven now with the release of her album ‘Lucky’ last year (which we gave a glowing 9 to, describing it as “Sampson’s best album to date, and one of the best Americana albums of the year so far”) preceding a tour this autumn which will take her to the Netherlands, England and Scotland.
This will be the first tour where she will be bringing two of her US band members. Kyle Reid and Jason Scott will be backing her up on various string instruments and backing vocals.
Especially for the occasion Carter and her 2 tour companions have recorded new trio versions of 4 originals and a cover, all standards in Carter’s live sets, now in the setting they will sound in on European stages in October and November. You can hear them below. Here are the dates!
