Published Sep 16, 2011Olenka & the Autumn Lovers only just crossed Canada last month, but the hard-working folk crew are keeping their roadshow going. This fall, songwriter Olenka Krakus and her bandmates will tour their home country, playing shows from the West Coast all the way to the Maritimes.
There are 16 gigs in all, a handful of which will find Krakus playing solo. The outing includes festival dates at Rifflandia, Oh! Fest and Halifax Pop Explosion. See the itinerary below.
In a press release, Krakus said, "I'm really looking forward to performing twice at Rifflandia. I've been a fan of the festival for a while, and it's offered me the perfect excuse to visit Victoria, BC, which I haven't seen since I was 13. We're also excited about returning to the East Coast in October; it's always very uplifting and inspiring to visit that region in the autumn." An Autumn Lover indeed.
