Kathleen Edwards Gives Away "Lame" Old Tour Banner and a Whole Lot More in Closet-Cleaning Spree
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.
I'm giving away my very disappointing backdrop I had made for my voyageur tour. It's firecode and unused. Who wants? pic.twitter.com/6oBnVmdkgk— Kathleen Edwards (@kittythefool) June 2, 2016
We hung it the first night of our tour in Milwaukee. We never hung it again if memory serves.— Kathleen Edwards (@kittythefool) June 2, 2016
Also who the fuck approved this !?!? (Probably me not realizing how lame it would look once printed )— Kathleen Edwards (@kittythefool) June 2, 2016
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.
