Joanna Newsom Announces 2016 West Coast 'Divers' Tour Dates
Indie-folk harp goddess Joanna Newsom has announced more tour dates in support of her latest album, Divers, this time across the west coast in 2016.
According to a press release, the new west coast dates, as well as a brand new show at New York City's historic Apollo Theatre, are an extension to the singer/songwriter's first organized North American tour in nearly four years.
The tour will display the true nature of multi-instrumentalism, with Newsom herself on vocals, harp, piano and keyboards; accompanied by Ryan Francesconi on guitar, tambura, banjo, kaval and flute; Mirabai Peart on violin, viola, vocals and keyboards; and Pete Newsom on drums and keyboards.
Alela Diane & Ryan Francesconi will serve as supporting acts for select (starred) dates. You can check out all of her currently scheduled dates, some of which have already been sold out, below. Newsom's newly-announced dates are bolded, tickets for which will go on sale this Friday (December 4).
Divers was released back in October via Drag City and is currently available for purchase via the label's website or download via iTunes. The singer, who is also the wife of actor/comedian Andy Samberg, has released four studio albums to date. For your amusement, you can also watch her teach Larry King how to play the harp.
