Springtime updates: More tours, festivals, awards..

We’ve got some exciting plans for the Spring and Summer and thought we’d give you an update.

In less than a week we’ll be embarking on a quick tour through the US Midwest (Minneapolis, Chicago, Toledo, Goshen, Pontiac, Cleveland & Columbus) and Ontario (Ottawa, Kingston, Peterborough, Burnstown, Toronto, London & Hamilton) with just enough time to stop at the Juno awards where we will be up for Traditional/Roots Album of the Year! We’ve also just announced that we’ll be taking part in JUNOfest which takes place at venues around Ottawa. Our showcase is at The Live Lounge on Saturday March 31st at midnight.

Speaking of awards, there is only one week left to vote for the Sirius XM Indie Awards. If you’d like to help us win, click HERE and vote in the FOLK/ROOTS ARTIST/GROUP OR DUO OF THE YEAR category. Thanks! The awards will be given out on March 24th.

We have also announced a run of dates in the Southern US for April and May which surround 3 festivals we’ll be playing at. Merlefest in Wilkesboro, NC; Sunfest in West Palm Beach, FL; and Secret Stages in Birmingham, AL. Other shows will be in North & South Carolina, Florida, Alabama, Texas, Arkansas, Tennessee and Georgia. Click HERE for a full list of tour dates. Hope to see you there.
