    Mountain Man Announces March 2019 Tour, Shares "Boat" Live Performance Video

    Mountain Man continues its first US tour in six years this spring with eleven new headlining dates across the south and east, beginning March 16 in Houston through March 27 at The Barns at Wolf Trap, outside Washington, DC; the trio also plays festivals, including Big Ears and Newport Folk (more summer dates to come). The tour celebrates the acclaimed band's first album in eight years, Magic Ship, which Nonesuch released in the fall (full schedule below; tickets go on sale Friday, December 14).

    The New York Times said the album's "intimate, close-harmony songs … tap into an ageless essence of traditional ballads and lullabies as they contemplate companionship, family, love and death," and NPR called the record "a timeless space where three voices are all you need to be transported someplace wonderful." The New Yorker's Amanda Petrusich has just named Magic Ship one of the ten best albums of 2018, saying: "It’s heavy with acquired wisdom, and with vocals so haunting they’ll make you shiver."

    Magic Ship includes eleven original songs written by the trio—Amelia Meath, Alexandra Sauser-Monnig, and Molly Sarlé—as well as interpretations of Ted Lucas' "Baby Where You Are," Michael Hurley's "Blue Mountain," and the traditional hymn, "Bright Morning Stars."

    A new video, featuring Mountain Man's performance of "Boat" from Magic Ship at their recent sold-out hometown show at the Haw River Ballroom in North Carolina, debuts today and can be seen below. The intimate video is directed by is Josh Sliffe of Remedy.

    The band said, "Our hearts were warmed by how many beautiful faces we got to see and sing to across the country! A highlight of the tour was singing to all the babies who came to our all ages show at the Doug Fir in Portland. Thank you!"

    Rhiannon Giddens and Francesco Turrisi were on NPR's World Cafe to perform from the new album there is no Other and talk with host Talia Schlanger. It's "a fascinating collaboration," says Schlanger. "Both Rhiannon and Francesco are devoted students of music history whose mission is to use the past to illuminate the present and to give credit where credit’s due for the way instruments and ideas have moved over time between people. They used all that knowledge to make gorgeous music together on a new album called there is no Other." Hear the episode here.

    The latest episode of Robert Plant's new podcast series, Digging Deep, digs deep into "Bones of Saints," a song from his latest album, Carry Fire. "It's about vitality. I can't hold back the hands of time or anything like that, but I can only be in environments where people really, really mean it musically," Plant says of creating new music with his band the Sensational Space Shifters. "We have a kind of inherent capacity to start a new project and know that we have business to do ... If it gets anywhere at all, this music, it ought to be saying something, it ought to be reflecting." You can listen to the episode and watch the video for the track here.
