Jason Isbell will return to Australia in April 2014 for the first time with his full band with his latest album Southeastern receiving international acclaim and new songs to play at shows in Victoria and NSW including Boogie Festival.
Isbell, who has toured Australia in the past with Ryan Adams and Justin Townes Earle, will play selections from his catalogue of songs from Sirens of the Ditch (2007), Jason Isbell, The 400 Unit (2009), Here We Rest (2011) and Southeastern.
Supporting will be Tift Merritt showcasing songs from her sensational new album Travelling Alone. Her fans range from Patty Griffin and Rosanne Cash to Rick Moody and Nick Hornby (who devoted a chapter to Merritt in his 31 Songs book). Emmylou Harris said that Merritt “stood out like a diamond in a coal patch.”
