Chris Thile & Michael Daves to Tour UK and Ireland in September
Chris Thile and Michael Daves are set to tour the UK and Ireland in September in support of their Nonesuch Records debut album, Sleep with One Eye Open, released in May to widespread critical acclaim. The tour begins in London on September 13 and includes concerts in Dublin, Cork, Liverpool, and Sheffield. Tickets for the Cork show go on sale on August 3. All other tickets are on sale now. See below for all the dates.
Thile will also join fellow Nonesuch artist Brad Mehldau in a special concert at London’s Wigmore Hall on September 16, where they will perform as a duo. The concert is the penultimate in the Hall's Jazz Series curated by Mehldau.
Before then, Thile and Daves have a few duo performances scheduled in the States, starting with this Sunday's performance at the Newport Folk Festival; Thile joins his fellow Punch Brothers on tour in North America as well.
