Ben Watt Announces US Summer Tour
Watt will tour the US for one week in July, starting in Philadelphia, Penn., on the 15 and making his way to San Francisco, Calif., on the 22. 'Hendra' is his first solo release in 31 years.
In addition to the release of 'Hendra,' Watt recently premiered 'Trails,' his third deep folk mixtape installment, via Spin.
"I began the deep folk mixtape series last autumn," he says. "I was in the studio fiddling with my old rotary Rane 2016 mixer and suddenly wondered what it would sound like mixing folk music through it as opposed to disco... It reflects the mood I am in at the moment."
Watt will also be in the States to promote his second book release, 'Romany and Tom,' which hits shelves on June 10.
