Emmylou Harris and The Low Anthem Announce Fall US Tour
Nonesuch label mates Emmylou Harris and The Low Anthem are coming together to tour the US East Coast this fall. Starting at the Byham Theater in Pittsburgh on November 9 and concluding at the Peace Center in Greenville, South Carolina, on November 21, The Low Anthem will open for Harris, with stops along the way in Buffalo and Albany, New York; Northampton, Massachusetts; Wilmington, Delaware; Roanoke and Charlottesville, Virginia; and Frederick, Maryland.
For Harris, the November tour follows a series of September tour dates that begin with an appearance at the Americana Honors & Awards Show in Nashville, where another fellow Nonesuch group, the Carolina Chocolate Drops, are also due to perform and are up for Duo Group of the Year. Harris will also participate in the All for the Hall Los Angeles event to benefit the Country Music Hall of Fame & Museum.
The Low Anthem continues its summer tour through Europe in mid-September with several more dates scheduled in the UK. "The tour is going well," reports band member Jeff Prystowsky. "We're having a blast trampsing through the ports of Scandinavia to the beaches in Italy." On the band's site, he writes of the forthcoming tour: "We will be going on tour supporting one of the heroines of folk and country music, the great Emmylou Harris."
