Phil Elverum is hitting the road! He’s got some shows coming up in May and June, and he’ll be playing new songs at those shows from an upcoming album. For the concerts in the US, it will just be him and someone else as a duo band and Phil says that they are already sounding really good together. Check out all of the tour dates here or get your tickets now!
Mount Eerie is going to Chicago and Brussels. In Chicago, he’ll be talking to Hrishikesh Hirway. And in Brussels, it’s for Harry Smith’s 100th birthday with film screenings and a talk by Elverum. His new album is Lost Wisdom Pt. 2 from 2019 which was made with Julie Doiron.
