Summer tour update: shows added in MI, ME, NYC
My next tour on the east coast has come together in superb fashion–and thanks for the recent adds to the schedule in Michigan, Maine and New York City. I’m still hoping to add a show or two in the mid-Atlantic the week of July 1-6, so stay tuned.
And from the “hope we can make this happen” file: I am hoping to land a New England show with dear old friend and longtime touring partner Andrew McKnight. With our travel schedules colliding there it’s just too tempting. So if you’re in CT or MA and you’d like to host a house concert on Saturday July 27 we could provide a memorable joint performance in your living room or community center–I can assure you special things tend to happen when Andrew and I are in the same zip code.
And of course, I’ll be bringing my bike, so any ideas on good rides along the way are welcome. Here is the schedule so far, see my Calendar page for details; TBA means there is either a date to still fill with a show or “The Bike Awaits:

Autumn finds guitarist/composer Michael DeLalla back in Colorado after a summer tour in the mid-Atlantic. Performances were in a variety of settings: solo concerts to celebrate his new release This Is How I Disappear, a show with his longtime partners in Celtic music The Unfortunate Rakes, a concert with National Autoharp Champion Bonnie Phipps, and a two-week guitar workshop. Check back frequently for newly added shows.
Michael DeLalla: Home again, keeping it local for a (little) while
Six weeks. 8711 miles. I don’t think I’ve ever played a more gratifying tour–great venues that let the music sparkle, great audiences to soak it up. I can’t thank enough the wonderful radio and press along the way. And all the extras: plenty of sightings of old friends, lots of new friends, great regional food (I love this part of the job!), plenty of opportunity to soak up the varied cultures that comprise us. Thank you.
Back in Colorado now, with a slate of shows close to home–a great opportunity to connect with my Front Range friends. Check the Events sidebar for updates and more details.
