Great Lake Swimmers return to Europe in April and May this year on the strength of their most recent album, A Forest Of Arms, and in support of a new EP (TBA).

This incarnation of the touring band will feature three core members: singer and songwriter Tony Dekker, banjo and guitarist Erik Arnesen, and upright bassist Bret Higgins. They will be playing music from across the catalogue with a focus on quieter songs for this intimate tour. Requests can be made at or through DM on our Facebook page.

The opening act will be harpist Mary Lattimore (Thrill Jockey).

The band is also hoping to fill a few off-days with smaller shows and house concerts.
These dates are:

April 22, 2016 (near Geneva)
April 25, 2016 (near Valencia, ES)
April 29, 2016 (near Poitiers, France)

If anyone can host the band with a house concert or venue near the above areas, please contact: Thanks!
