SeepeopleS has announced a run of tourdates along the East Coast, starting this coming weekend, with two festival appearances.
First, the band will play Dog Stock in Malvern, Kansas on Friday. The festival will raise money for the Akita Adoption and Rescue Foundation. Other acts include Leon Russell, Jacob Fred Jazz Odyssey, Papa Mali and many more.
The band will then play Bele Chere, in their hometown of Asheville, NC, Saturday July 28. This year's Bele Chere has a solid line-up that includes Rusted Root, Karl Denson Trio, Gin Blossoms, JJ Grey and Mofro, and Perpetual Groove.
Later in the evening SeepeopleS and Perpetual Groove will join up for a private acoustic taping of a joint live performance at Echo Mountain Studios (for future release), located at the heart of downtown Asheville. Tickets are not available to the public, but rumors abound of a very special Will Bradford and Friends performance with "very" special guests at Hannah Flanagan's Outdoor Stage in Asheville the very next day, Sunday July 29 at 6pm.
Please visit the SeepeopleS message board at www.seepeoples.com to catch wind of more info for this very special weekend.
Following this weekend, SeepeopleS continues their East Coast Tour in Raleigh, NC, at the Pour House on August 22. The Run will take them back to New England, where the band was formed in 2000, with shows throughout the Northeast.
In additional news, preceding the tour, SeepeopleS' frontman and main songwriter Will Bradford will open two shows for Tim Reynolds, August 17 at the Visulite Theatre in Charlotte, NC, and August 18 at the Handlebar in Greenville, SC.
