Tom McRae / September and October 2009 UK and Ireland Tour

By on Tuesday, 2nd June 2009 at 11:22 pm

Quite possibly one of the nicest and most genuine singer/songwriters in the land, Mr. Tom McRae has announced a string of UK tour dates for September and October around the UK and Ireland as part of a bigger European tour, called the “Alphabet of Hurricanes Tour”.

I’ve caught him live three times (in London each time), and he’s an amusing performer that provides a bit of lightness between his dark and brooding songs. Looks like it’s going to be a brilliant (if dark) Autumn, with new albums from Tom, The National and Tegan and Sara.

I don’t know when tickets go on sale, but expect it will be very soon.
