Tony Dekker Unveils New Video, Maps Out Summer Tour with Great Lake Swimmers
Great Lake Swimmers' live schedule isn't so much a full-blown tour as it is a steady smattering of gigs over a month and a half from early July to late August. They have nine stops in all, stretching from coast-to-coast and including a few festivals and a Massey Hall date in Toronto with the Rural Alberta Advantage. See the itinerary below.
Scroll past that to watch the video for the folksy "Talking in Your Sleep." It's a low-key affair, showing Dekker strumming while illuminated by candles and glittery faux-starlight.
07/08 Toronto, ON - Massey Hall *
07/12 Gravenhurst, ON - Peter's Players
07/18-19 Vancouver, BC - Vancouver Folk Music Festival
07/22 Kelowna, BC - Habitat

08/03 Pelee Island, ON - The Island Unplugged
