Calexico and Iron & Wine team up with Andrew Bird for The Great Summer Stroll Tour
Calexico and Iron & Wine are teaming up with Andrew Bird for The Great Summer Stroll tour this June. The coast to coast co-headline tour kicks off in Iron & Wine’s home state of North Carolina and includes stops at Red Rocks Amphitheatre with Neko Case, in Andrew’s home state of Illinois at the Ravinia Festival, and culminates at The Hollywood Bowl where Mandolin Orange joins the evening’s proceedings. Joseph will open dates on the first half of the tour.
Crossing paths at numerous festivals, sharing touring personnel, and being fans of each other’s work, a long-standing friendship has existed between Andrew Bird, Calexico and Iron & Wine over the years. The three acts first shared a bill in Boston last fall where the idea of a co-headline tour arose. As the year came to a close and with the lines of communication fresh, The Great Summer Stroll tour fell into place.
All three artists have earned praise and critical acclaim for their recent records. Calexico and Iron & Wine’s collaborative record, Years to Burn [Sub Pop] received two nominations at the 2020 Grammy Awards, the first for Best American Roots Performance and the second for Best Americana Album. Andrew Bird’s latest release, My Finest Work Yet [Loma Vista], received a nomination for Best Folk Album at the 2020 Grammy Awards.
$1 from each ticket sold will be donated to The Nature Conservancy’s Plant a Billion Trees campaign.
