Two years after the release of the triumphant Black Swan, legendary folkie Bert Jansch is once again making a rare trip to North America. This summer, the UK songwriter will hit up several U.S. cities and swing though a few Canadian ones, including Vancouver, Victoria, Montreal and Toronto.

The dates come as the Drag City-signed Jansch celebrates the re-release of his three albums recorded for the Charisma imprint in the '70s: the seminal LA Turnaround, Santa Barbara Honeymoon and A Rare Conundrum. All have been long out-of-print and all will be pressed on CD for the first time on June 15. Along with being remastered under Jansch's supervision, each will also include a selection of newly added bonus material - much of which is previously unreleased, including a previously unseen 13-minute film made during the recordings of LA Turnaround - and feature the original artwork, alongside some new photos and liner notes.
