Carrie Elkin announces UK tour dates

“I’m thinking Patty Griffin, Nanci Griffith and Iris DeMent…. spellbinding” So says Bob Harris about Austin-based folk-Americana singer-songwriter Carrie Elkin who has announced a May-June UK tour, accompanied by husband Danny Schmidt. The tour is in support of new solo album “The Penny Collector”.  Written in a year that was bookended by the birth of Elkin’s first child and the process of caretaking her father through the dying process, “The Penny Collector” is her own personal full circle around the human lifecycle in one single year.
