Tift Merritt continues "Traveling" tour
Singer/songwriter Tift Merritt has a late summer outing on her hands, as well as an extended version of her latest effort, "Traveling Alone," preparing to hit shelves.
The North Carolina native starts the roadwork Sunday (7/14) with an appearance at Forecastle Festival in Louisville, KY. The outing then heads west for a few dates before skipping across the nation for a mix of festival gigs, theater shows and an Aug. 6 performance at L.A.'s Grammy Museum.
In October, Merritt will hit a few major U.S markets supporting Over the Rhine, as well as a handful of European cities with Josh Ritter.
Merritt will release an expanded version of last fall's "Traveling Alone" Sept. 17, according to a press release. The deluxe collection will feature the 10-track acoustic "Traveling Companion," as well as a postcard set and hardbound lyric book.
