Terra Lightfoot Joins Blue Rodeo Cross-Canada Tour
Fresh from tearing up the festival circuit across the country and charming listeners during a CBC q Friday Live performance, Hamilton songwriter Terra Lightfoot today announced an exciting start to her 2016 Canadian touring plans: She and her band will join Canadian alt-country icons Blue Rodeo from January 12 to 28, 2016 as they criss-cross the country in support of their upcoming release Live at Massey Hall. Tickets for the tour go on sale Friday, October 16 at 10am through livenation.com.
Lightfoot continues to bring her latest album, Every Time My Mind Runs Wild on the road, playing solo shows along the east coast supporting Whitehorse from October 8 to 17. Following that, she will join the Women’s Blues Revue at Toronto’s storied Massey Hall on November 28. All tour dates are listed below.
As a measure of her dedication to fans, Lightfoot has been making personal deliveries of pre-ordered Every Time My Mind Runs Wild vinyl albums to her fans. A force of nature onstage, the artist is every bit as entertaining offstage, as a newly released promo clip directed by Mitch Barnes reveals.
Available now via Sonic Unyon, Every Time My Mind Runs Wild is produced and mixed by Gus van Go and Werner F (Monster Truck, Said the Whale, The Trews) and mixed by Noah Mintz (Death from Above 1979, The Sheepdogs, Danko Jones). They also enlisted the talents of keyboardist Liam O’Neil (The Stills) to round out the core trio of Lightfoot (guitar, vocals), Matthew Fleming (bass) and Joel Haynes (drums). The studio sessions distil all that audiences have come to love about the performer — fluid, fiery guitar-work, powerful vocals and melodies that resonate for days. From the sad-eyed swagger of opener “All Alone” to the haunted ballad “Splinter” that closes the set, Every Time My Mind Runs Wild establishes Lightfoot as a singular talent and songwriting force.
