Tyler Childers brought his Send In The Hounds Tour to Chicago, IL on Thursday evening for a performance at The Salt Shed featuring support from Marcus King and Miles Miller.
Following the opening sets by Miller and King, Childers took the stage for a brief run of solo acoustic songs including “Shake The Frost”, “Lady May”, “Nose on the Grindstone”, and “Follow You to Virgie”. Tyler was joined next by his longtime backing band, The Food Stamps, for the remainder of the show, which featured selections from his last for LPs and beyond.
The Send In The Hounds Tour is Tyler Childers’ first full outing since his Good Look’n Tour with Sturgill Simpson was cut short by the pandemic in 2020. Since then, Childers released his acclaimed 2020 bluegrass album, Long Violent History, on which he used traditional American mountain music to make a progressive statement on racial inequality in the United States. The Kentucky native then went underground as he pursued long-term sobriety, appearing sporadically and sparingly at festivals and Red Rocks. He returned in force in September 2022 with Can I Take My Hounds To Heaven?, an ambitious, three-part album presented three distinct versions of each of its eight unique tracks.
