Kenyan-born folk singer J.S. Ondara put on one of the best sets we saw at SXSW, and he's in the midst of wrapping up a sold-out US tour. Now he has announced many more North American dates, including some larger venues than he played last time around. The tour surrounds appearances at Newport Folk Festival and NJ's XPoNential Festival.

The newly-added includes include Brooklyn's Music Hall of Williamsburg on November 2. Tickets for that show go on sale Friday (4/5) at 10 AM with an AmEx presale starting Wednesday (4/3) at noon. All dates are listed below.

Watch J.S. Ondara start a crowd singalong to "Saying Goodbye" (off his great debut album Tales of America) at the BrooklynVegan SXSW day party, below.
