Matt Andersen Expands North American Tour, Wins Maple Blues Award
Continuing to gear up for the release of his new record Honest Man, New Brunswick blues guitarist Matt Andersen has expanded his upcoming North American tour to include over 50 dates that will keep him on the road from mid-February to deep into May.

In support of the record, Andersen will be making his way through Canada and the United States alongside fellow Canadian songwriter and Juno Award nominee Donovan Woods. A press release reveals that the two are no strangers to each other, with Woods having earned co-writing credits on two tracks that will appear on Honest Man.

On top of the tour extension, Andersen was also named Male Vocalist of the Year as part of the Maple Blues Awards for the second year in a row, bringing his total amount of Maple Blues Awards to four.

Honest Man is set to arrive on February 26 via True North Records. Scroll down to look through Andersen's complete tour listings below.
