Andrew Bird Announces Tour With a New Band

Whistle virtuoso Andrew Bird is headed on tour this summer, and he’s bringing along a new band. He’s put together “an old timey acoustic configuration” comprised of guitarist Tift Merritt, stand up bassist Alan Hampton, drummer Kevin O’Donnell and pedal steel guitarist Eric Heywood as his backing band, Hands of Glory.

The tour starts off in New York and goes strong until September with stops at a few festivals such as Bonnaroo and Ottawa Bluesfest. Check out the entire list of tour dates below.
