We're back from a great trip to Tel Aviv and London (including an appearance on Later... with Jools Holland, which you can watch here), and we're now about to embark on a run of Midwest dates. These include a return to Bonnaroo, as well as headline shows at the Beachland Ballroom in Cleveland on June 3rd, Magic Stick in Detroit on June 4th, and The Palladium in Carmel, IN on June 6th. Lera Lynn will open the three headline dates.
Also coming up very quickly is the second installation of the Noam & Friends' Beat The Devil and Carry A Rail album release tour (featuring Chris Eldridge and Aoife O'Donovan), with a trio of California dates starting TOMORROW at the Freight & Salvage in Berkeley on the 23rd followed by Grass Valley Center for the Arts in Grass Valley, CA on the 25th and Strawberry Music Festival in Yosemite on the 27th. Noam & Friends will also play a few dates in July in the Tri-State area, including a FREE show in NYC at Madison Square Park on July 4th, as well as a set at Grey Fox and RockyGrass festivals (where Punch Brothers will also perform). Visit noampikelny.com for details.
Europe, we're coming back your way in July for several festivals (including Hard Rock Calling in London on July 15th) and a pair of headlining dates in Paris and Dublin. As we've mentioned, we will head to Australia in August. Tickets for our headline show at The Basement in Sydney are on-sale now HERE.
A couple big announcements further out on the horizon... First, we're quite pleased to join the stellar lineup at Austin City Limits Music Festival on October 13th. And early next year, we're setting sail with some other great artists on the Mountain Song At Sea cruise which embarks from Miami on February 1st to Great Stirrup Cay in the Bahamas. You can book a cabin now here.
We'll leave you with a short video for your enjoyment. We stopped by Garden & Gun's offices while in Charleston and filmed a Levon Helm song for their Back Porch Sessions. You can watch our performance of "The Weight" HERE.
