Fall touring begins!

As the summer heat begins to fade and the leaves begin to turn, there is nothing like getting in a van and criss-crossing the country. Birds of Chicago, Mandolin Orange and Michaela Anne are all following that game-plan over the next few months. 

Birds of Chicago's tour will take them from eastern Ontario to California, and many places in between. Upcoming show highlights include a set at the Freshgrass Festival at Mass MOCA alongside a headlining date at the Great American Music Hall in San Francisco. 

Mandolin Orange has some big plays this fall, including an appearance at the Austin City Limits Music Festival and a Mountain Stage taping in Grand Marias, MN, but it's possibly even more exciting that they'll be doing their first headlining European tour in November.

Michaela's touring will be a bit more centralized along the east coast. Notable gigs include headlining sets at the Living Room and Club Passim along with a songwriter showcase at the Bluebird Cafe. 

As if everyone wasn't busy enough, there is plenty of new music in the works! Michaela is wrapping up a new record that's going to be something special (see some shots from the studio here!), the Birds are putting the finishing touches on Real Midnight, and Farewell Milwaukee is gearing up to head into the studio next month.
