The Giving Tree Band announce June tour dates with Joe Purdy

Music News | May 17th, 2012

The Giving Tree Band are pleased to announce their upcoming June tour dates with celebrated singer-songwriter Joe Purdy, for whom they will also serve as backing band in addition to opening act.

Having just completed recording on their new album Vacilador, the Giving Tree Band are eager to get back on the road to showcase the new album to fans. Vacilador will be released later this fall, but as a first look and listen off the record, The Giving Tree Band have also released a music video for the song “Cold Cold Rain.”

Since the release of their most recent album The Joke, The Threat & The Obvious, The Giving Tree Band have kept busy crisscrossing the nation, playing anywhere their path takes them. Be it a road house, large scale music festival, dive bar, or the Millennium Stage at The Kennedy Center, they’ve humbly brought their music to those who would listen. On the PBS television program, Woodsongs Old-Time Radio Hour, host Michael Johnathon introduced The Giving Tree Band as “the spirit of Pete Seeger with the musical abilities of The Band and the audaciousness of The Avett Brothers” The band were labeled a band “On The Verge” by Relix Magazine, and in Acoustic Guitar magazine were described as covering a “wide swath of the classic rock pantheon-such as Neil Young, Bob Dylan, the Band, the Grateful Dead, and the Beatles-but with a fuller sound featuring quasi-orchestral instrumentation and barbershop harmonies.”
