ZZ Ward, Delta Rae mount co-headlining run
Blues-hop artist ZZ Ward and folk rock outfit Delta Rae will join forces for a winter co-headlining run early next year.
Ward and Delta Rae will kick off the "Fire and Shine" outing with a Jan. 29 performance in Denver, followed by club gigs scattered from coast to coast through mid-March. The 22-city outing, which includes a Feb. 28 stop in Toronto, wraps up March 11 in New Orleans.
British slide guitarist Martin Harley will handle opening duties on the run.
ZZ Ward, who is in the midst of her first headlining tour, is promoting her full-length debut, "Til The Casket Drops," which dropped last month.
Delta Rae, comprised of three siblings -- Ian Holljes, Eric Holljes and Brittany Holljes -- as well as Elizabeth Hopkins, Mike McKee and Grant Emerson, unveiled their debut album, "Carry the Fire," in June via Sire Records. The band has recently performed to sold-out crowds in New York City, San Francisco, Los Angeles and their hometown of Durham, NC.
