US Tour + return to Aus/NZ/UK/Canada in 2015

I’m so very excited to announce a massive US tour starting this week!

For those in Australia, NZ, Canada and the UK, I also have news about when i’ll be touring next in 2015.

Firstly though, I’m honoured to be invited on the road with a brilliant young trio called…
The Stray Birds, from Lancaster, Pennsylvania.

The Stray Birds

Named in NPRs top 10 folk albums and one of the best old time-new time bluegrass-harmony groups I’ve ever seen they are amazing!!!

We met in Glasgow, Scotland in the bitter cold of January 2014. They offered me a bed in their hotel room, and were so kind to me, twas the beginning of a new found friendship. But during a taxi ride the next day for some sight seeing to Kensington Grove it almost came to an abrupt end when my boiling hot pumpkin soup went flying over the whole band and their new shoes.

Somehow they forgave me, and here we are 9 months later getting in the van across the great expanse of America to celebrate their new album release, and continuing my international release of ‘Not Built To Last’.

I thought I’d seen so much of the USA in the last 2 years but the more you see…well, the bigger it gets! I’ll be playing my debut performances in 30 new cities opening for and collaborating with The Stray Birds.

Check out this video of The Stray Birds jamming ‘Black Diamond’ with me at a house concert in Edinburgh, Scotland just after I spilled the soup all over em!

I’ll also be zipping around for a few of my own headliners during the tour including a return to Berkeley/San Fransisco’s Freight & Salvage for a double bill with one of my favourites, Rose Cousins, from Nova Scotia, Canada. Tickets are now on sale (click HERE) and this is one for you West Coasters to not dare miss!

We  are also very excited to announce we have been invited back to play one of our favourite folk festivals in the world, Port Fairy, in Victoria in March 2015. Alongside Sinead O’Connor, John Butler Trio and Richard Thompson, tickets and info are here: http://www.portfairyfolkfestival.com/

This is just the first thing we can share with you from a string of festivals and headline shows back in Aus & NZ in Feb, March and April 2015.

We also have awesome festivals and tours slated for Canada and the UK in May-June 2015 that we’ll share with you very soon! For those in the North-West of England, we can tell ya i’ll be playing at Ireby Festival so chuck that one in the diary!
