Southern Tenant Folk Union Tour Dates

“What would you give for a leader with soul?” the five piece Southern Tenant Folk Union ask on their recently released EP, which acts as a taster for the  upcoming album “Join Forces”.  They’ve made a collection of stirring and questioning political songs – and they’re now taking them out for the approval of the nation. It’s the sound of the times – disaffected but wryly witty.  Vote with your feet and get along to any one of their dates through September and October and into November – the reward you’ll get is a driving blend of bluegrass and folk, with powerful and uplifting playing.

Sure, I could climb high in a tree, or go to Skye on my holiday. I could be happy. All I really want is the excitement of first hearing The Byrds, the amazement of decades of Dylan's music, or the thrill of seeing a band like The Long Ryders live. That's not much to ask, is it?
