Punch Brothers have announced the return of their American Acoustic tour, set to travel the United States this summer. The entirety of the tour will feature Watchhouse, with Sarah Jarosz on select dates.
First debuted in 2017, the American Acoustic tour sees Punch Brothers share the stage and two large condenser microphones with other artists for an evening of collaborative music. The tradition began following a 2016 engagement at Washington, D.C.’s Kennedy Center curated by Punch Brothers mandolinist and former Live From Here host Chris Thile. This will mark the first edition of the American Acoustic tour since 2017, when Punch Brothers hit the road with I’m With Her featuring special guest Julian Lage.
The tour will begin on July 27th in Bonner, MT before moving westward with stops in Salt Lake City, UT (7/28); Portland, OR (7/31); Seattle, WA (8/1); and Jacksonville, OR (8/3). Following a run of California dates in Saratoga (8/5), Rohnert Park (8/6), and Los Angeles (8/7), the American Acoustic tour will head to the Northeast for the final two shows in New Haven, CT (8/18) and lastly Manchester, VT (8/20).
Tickets for the Seattle and Vermont shows are on sale now. All other tickets go on sale on Friday at 10 a.m. local venue time except L.A. and Rohnert Park, which go up on April 19th at 10 a.m. PT and April 28th at 10 a.m. PT respectively.
