The Revival Tour is becoming something of a tradition. Started by Hot Water Music’s Chuck Ragan in 2008, the tour has been promoting folk music ever since with a revolving cast. This year they’re coming to mainland Europe for the first time and it’s fair to say I’m spyched!

Joining Chuck will be The Gaslight Anthem’s Brian Fallon, The Loved Ones’ Dave Hause and Alkaline Trio’s Dan Andriano, all of whom will be backed up by Jon Gaunt on fiddle and Joe Ginsberg on upright bass.

If you already want to know what the shows are going to be like, there’s now an 8-song comp with two contributions from each of the players. Whether it’s the harmonica-enhanced “Bedroll Lullaby” or the lap steel guitar on Dave Hause’s “Pray For Tucson”, it’s all good!
