Joseph Arthur Announces Dates With Rodrigo & Gabriela

JOSEPH ARTHUR TO SUPPORT RODRIGO & GABRIELA FOR RUN OF SHOWS IN AUGUST 
 
PERFORMING AT WOMAD FESTIVAL & IN LONDON THIS WEEKEND

July 26, 2017 – After completing a U.S. tour earlier this month in support of the 15th Anniversary of his classic album Redemption's Son, Joseph Arthur will now join Rodrigo & Gabriela on the road for a series of shows in the U.S. during August.  Tickets for all shows are on sale now.
 
Joseph will also head to London for his only European performance of Redemption's Son in its entirety at the Borderline on Saturday July 29th.  Tickets are on sale now: http://www.ticketweb.co.uk/event/YGB2907Z ;
 
He will also be appearing at this year's edition of the WOMAD Festival on July 28th: http://womad.co.uk/artist/joseph-arthur/
 
On June 23rd, Real World Records, re-issued the original album (with its original artwork) along with nine bonus tracks all of which have been previously unreleased.  Redemption’s Son 15th Anniversary Edition is available on 180-gram double LP, double CD, and digitally.  It is the first time the album is available on vinyl ever.
 
The nine previously unreleased songs now form a “lost album” which Arthur has named Morning Star.
 
“We decided to turn these tracks into their own album called 'Morning Star' rather than a collection of this that and the other thing,” Arthur remarked.  “It's a great feeling when the past burps up a gift. Things forgotten and submerged by the vortex of time which reveals its illusions thru a process such as this. First listens of old things are a lot like taking the wrapping paper off a gift. That excited smile comes over you (hopefully) and it's kinda wonderful. But soon you get transported back to the time these things were new and then they become fresh elements to work with. No more a gift but a responsibility. Like if you got a dog for Christmas. What they say about a work of art being never finished but abandoned is accurate. And I learned here that you can essentially un-abandon them. We took these old things and we set out to make something current.”
