Paste Magazine Presents: Spirit Family Reunion, Hurray For The Riff Raff and special guests Deslondes (formerly The Tumbleweeds) Coming off widely celebrated performances at this summer's Newport Folk Festival, New Orleans' Hurray For The Riff Raff and New York City's Spirit Family Reunion are excited to announce a nationwide fall tour that will be presented by Paste Magazine. The tour launches appropriately at the Americana Music Conference in Nashville, TN, dips down to New Orleans, and then over to the West Coast to include stops at the inaugural Way Over Yonder Festival (presented by The Newport Folk) in Santa Monica before moving back east, ending in Spirit Family Reunion's home turf at the Music Hall of Williamsburg. Very special guests The Deslondes (formerly known as The Tumbleweeds) will support each night. The tour was initially announced onstage at the Newport Folk Festival while all three bands performed together at the close of Spirit Family Reunion's set (see video) but conceived much earlier. All three bands played together at the 2013 Heartbreaker Banquet at Willie Nelson's Ranch during SXSW in Austin, TX. As the night replaced the day, the various musicians were remarking about how much fun they were having together, and the idea of a nationwide tour was hatched. Fostering a tight musical community that covers thousands of miles, Hurray for the Riff Raff leader Alynda lee Segarra and Spirit Family Reunion's Nick Panken, Maggie Carson and Stephen Weinheimer all grew up together on the East Coast. Spirit Family Reunion's fiddle/accordion player Mat Davidson grew up with The Deslondes' Sam Doores on the West Coast. And to complete the circle, Sam Doores and Dan Cutler of The Deslondes have been longtime touring members of Hurray For The Riff Raff. Doors 7 pm | Show 8 pm
