Today, the Chris Robinson Brotherhood have announced the first leg of their “Barefoot In The Head” U.S. tour, corresponding with the late-summer release of their new studio album of the same name. The official release date of Barefoot In The Head will be announced in the near future.
The 17-date summer run will head up the East Coast, stopping in North Carolina, Virginia, Maryland, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, New Jersey, Massachusetts, Pennsylcania, New York, D.C., and Georgia. The band will also make two additional festival appearances: at the Oregon Country Fair in Veneta, OR on July 7 and the inaugural Bourbon & Beyond Festival in Louisville, KY on Sept. 23.
Barefoot In The Head will arrive on the heels of the band’s new live album, Betty’s Blends, Vol. 3: Self-Rising, Southern Blends, which is set for a May 5th release. The 3-LP set compiles performances from Chris Robinson Brotherhood’s Southern U.S. tour in 2015 recorded, mixed and hand-selected by legendary recording engineer and Grateful Dead archivist Betty Cantor-Jackson.
