This fall, Whitehorse sets out on The Sweet Disaster Tour, a music marathon that starts where it all began, in Hamilton, ON. Fittingly, Six Shooter has released a new backyard version of “Sweet Disaster” that showcases the beautiful basics, the “Gram and Emmylou” magic at the heart of Whitehorse. See Luke and Melissa strip away the bells and whistles here.
September brings a fistful of shows with Corb Lund and a return to Nashville, TN for the 2015 AmericanaFest.
In October, The Sweet Disaster Tour will cross into the Maritimes for Whitehorse’s first theatre shows in the region since the album’s release in early 2015. On this run, the duo will make stops in New Brunswick, Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island. Whitehorse’s previous visit to Nova Scotia was for two sold out shows with the Halifax Symphony Orchestra in 2014.
Leave No Bridge Unburned received praise far and wide, from Rolling Stone, NPR, Toronto Star, Guitar Player and other major publications. On only their second full-length collection, Whitehorse exploded into a full-blown rock and roll outfit, made an impressive run in the Top 5 on the Alternative Radio Chart and played to their largest crowds yet, including a return to another packed Massey Hall in the spring.
Whitehorse also reunites with Canadian tour opener Noah Gundersen for shows in the American south and up the west coast. The itinerary includes a show at the historic Fonda Theatre in LA.
