By Alex HudsonEast Coast folkie Ben Caplan has already embarked on a number of Canadian tours in recent months, but that isn't stopping him from getting ready to do it all over again.
Following some UK and European gigs this month, the Haligonian songwriter will return to these shores in June for a number of shows in the eastern half of the country. He will then head back to Europe for a tour of the Netherlands in September. See the schedule below.
A press release notes that Caplan is working on a new album. There's no word as to when it will arrive, but when it does, it will be the follow-up to last year's In the Time of the Great Remembering.
