Published Jun 26, 2015Olenka & the Autumn Lovers are now based in Vancouver, but leader Olenka Krakus first formed the group while in London, ON. Thanks to this cross-Canada connection, the folksy ensemble will be touring to Ontario next month to perform at London's Home County Folk Festival. Along the way, they'll be hitting up a number of other cities.
The tour lasts for two months in July, and it lands in 11 different cities. This includes a number of gigs in Ontario, plus stops across the Prairies. A note on Facebook says that a few more shows may be added to the schedule; see the itinerary, as it currently stands, below.
The group are still supporting It's Alright, a three-song digital single from 2012 that came out on 7-inch vinyl in 2013. A note on Olenka's official website confirms that a new album in is in the works.
