Great Lake Swimmers – 2008 Tour Dates

Great Lake Swimmers

Canadian folkies Great Lake Swimmers had a busy summer. They’ve been touring since May, mostly north of the border, including one date when they opened for Robert Plant and Alison Krauss in GLS’s hometown of Toronto. They performed at charity concerts and focused on building community. But when Tony Dekker wasn’t busy scoring a documentary, paying homeage to Canadian concrete, or playing drill sergeant in folk boot camp, Great Lake Swimmers began creating new material. Nettwerk just announced the anticipated release of the band’s fourth album, set for early Spring 2009. [Paste]
