Annie Crane will head out on tour this October in support of her upcoming Jump With A Child's Heart album scheduled for release by Constant Clip Records on October 4th.
Crane will kick off the run of dates with a record release show on October 1st at NYC venue The Living Room where she will be joined by Jason Benjamin of the Red Hook Ramblers on Trumpet, Lauren Weaver on Cello, Brian Speaker on Drums, husband Eric Wolfson on Bass and Jeff Berner on Slide Guitar. Vocal harmonies will be provided by Claire Bowman of Americana duo The Bowmans.
The tour that follows will see Crane playing some intimate house shows in the same vein made recently notable by artists such as David Bazan and others.
Crane is also satisfying a folk music tradition with these shows by playing to close crowds in an environment that lets the stories in her songs shine outside of the typical club environment.
As with Bazan's living room tours, these house shows can be attended by e-mailing the address provided in order to receive directions to the performance location.
