Published May 18, 2012Baby Dee's 2011 disc Regifted Light was crafted on an old Steinway piano given to her by Andrew W.K., but the campy performer will leave the eighty-eights at home on her upcoming North American tour.
A press release explains that a string of shows taking place between June and July will have her travelling with her trusty, slightly more compact harp instead of the stately Steinway. Though chances are if there's a piano in the house, she'll tickle those ivories too.
A good chunk of the dates take place in the U.S., but Dee will travel up north for four Canadian stops. She'll play Winnipeg's Park Theatre June 19, stop by Calgary for a couple of shows at Sled Island, and head to Vancouver's Waldorf Hotel on June 24 before getting back on the other side of the border.
