Jimmy Rankin to Celebrate the Holidays with Festive Canadian Tour

Jimmy Rankin to Celebrate the Holidays with Festive Canadian Tour
Jimmy Rankin didn't release an album in 2013, but last year's holiday-themed Tinsel Town LP will soon be seasonally appropriate once again, as Rankin will be making his way through Canada on tour this November and December on a "holiday tour."

The outing kicks off in the Maritimes in November. From there, Rankin will play a number of East Coast dates before heading out to the Prairies in early December. He will then backtrack to Ontario to play a number of gigs, ultimately wrapping up in Windsor on December 21.

A press release promises that these shows will offer "a classic mix of holiday songs and fan favourites that celebrates Christmas — East Coast style." See the schedule below.

Meanwhile, Rankin is currently working with returning producer Bill Bell (Danko Jones, Tom Cochrane) on a new solo album, which is due out in April 2014.
