By Gregory AdamsSince 2008, Hot Water Music member Chuck Ragan has made his Revival Tour a travelling folk extravaganza, and the annual North American event has now issued the details on the upcoming 2013 edition.
Unsurprisingly, a press release confirms that Ragan will be out on the road throughout the March-to-April run to play some solo tunes, and this year he's also roped in familiar faces like Rise Against's Tim McIlrath, the Loved Ones' Dave Hause, and Seattle acoustic-toter Rocky Votolato to appear onstage. New Jersey singer-songwriter Jenny Owen Youngs and Jenny O. will also play on selected dates.
"I've always been overwhelmed and inspired at how these collaborations and combinations of artists come together tour after tour," Ragan said in a statement.
The trip kicks off in Texas, but will hit up Toronto, Montreal and Vancouver by the end of April. You can check the show specifics down below.
"I'm looking forward to seeing and hearing yet another year of Revival and catching another incredibly unique view of what's happening within today's rising folk, Americana and independent music community," Ragan said of the bonding trip, "not to mention witnessing the joining of strangers from around the globe of all ages that unite to walk away and carry on as life-long friends."
