Tift Merritt: North American Headlining Dates


Tift Merritt
Having recently performed at the Americana Music Association Conference in Nashville, Tift Merritt is touring North America in support of her Yep Roc Records label debut Traveling Alone (out now). Dates include a fall tour with Justin Townes Earle before a February headlining tour throughout the east coast and southeast. Please see below for a list of shows.

Traveling Alone was recorded in Brooklyn with Tucker Martine (The Decemberists, My Morning Jacket, Spoon) and features a guest appearance by Andrew Bird as well as performances by Marc Ribot, Rob Burger (Lucinda Williams, Iron & Wine, Rufus Wainwright), John Convertino (Calexico), Eric Heywood (The Jayhawks, Son Volt, Alejandro Escovedo) and Merritt’s longtime collaborator Jay Brown.

“I really wanted to make a record that was real and raw,” notes Merritt. “I wanted to put together my dream cast and see if I could hold my own with them.” She goes on, “To me, Traveling Alone is about the roads on the inside—those places that are hard to see and not easy to send postcards from.”
