Johnny Dowd has just announced the first bunch of dates of his European tour to promote his new album Family Picnic:

I had to dig pretty deep for this one. Not sure how many more tunes I have in me. Tick tock. This record took an unexpected turn to the past — my past. It’s kind of like Wrong Side of Memphis 30 years down the road. Surprisingly little has changed for me (emotionally, that is). I’m still drawn to the same themes — unrequited love, murder, general foolishness. Waltzes and shuffles and boom chuck beats abound. Ice cream chord changes. Plus Kim Sherwood-Caso - and Mike Edmondson. What’s not to like? An Americana classic, if I do say so myself.

Family Picnic will be released in March. More dates TBA.
