Kathleen Edwards Gives Away "Lame" Old Tour Banner and a Whole Lot More in Closet-Cleaning Spree

Kathleen Edwards Gives Away "Lame" Old Tour Banner and a Whole Lot More in Closet-Cleaning Spree
While it's been a long four years since Kathleen Edwards gifted us her much-acclaimed Voyageur album, the Canadian folk-rock figure is now giving her fans the chance to own some of her home-cluttering mementos. A "lame" tour banner has already been grabbed, but you can still snag other ephemera at dirt cheap prices at her coffee shop this weekend.

Via Twitter, Edwards revealed today (June 2) that she was ready to let go of a giant tour banner that she had intended to hang throughout her Voyageur tour dates. Unfortunately, the mostly black backdrop, which also features a few splotches of blue and an indigo bandanna pattern, was not up to snuff.

The musician described the custom piece as "disappointing." Apparently, it was only raised once, in Wisconsin.
 
The disgraced Voyageur banner was quickly snatched up by the organizers of Ontario's Summerfolk festival, but there's more folk rock history to be nabbed. Edwards also revealed that she'll be selling off an arsenal of old show posters, stickers, tube fridge magnets, and promo 7-inches of her "Back to Me" single for $1 each at her Quitters Coffee establishment in Stittsville, ON, this Saturday (June 4). She's also trying to find a place to donate a collection film reels.

Edwards has not issued an album since 2012's Polaris Music Prize-shortlisted Voyageur. While a few personal posts led to rumours of the songwriter retiring, she confirmed back in 2014 that she's "stalled as fuck" on writing the follow-up.
