Spirit Family Reunion announce European tour in August/September

05-04-2016

Years ago - before their raw, rowdy reboot of old-timey folk music landed them tours with Americana heavyweights like Levon Helm and the Alabama Shakes - Spirit Family Reunion played their earliest gigs on street corners, subway platforms and farmer's market stands across New York City. The point was to avoid anything that could suck the life out of the music .. including traditional stages. Without lightning cues or monitor mixes, Spirit Family Reunion built up an audience the simple way: by kicking up plenty of dust and bringing down the house.

For their newest album "Hands Together", the group headed to Coney Island during the off-season. There, within stumblin distance of the Cyclone roller coaster, they recorded the album over the course of several months mixing everything we've come to expect of them. String-band twang, gospel harmonies and the countrified, half-crazed sweep of an old-school tent revival - with newer additions like tape-delay machine and portable electric organs.

We're very happy to have the band over this August and September, playing various festivals and clubs throughout Ireland, UK, Denmark and Benelux. Find all freshly announced dates here:
