"The spirit of Bob Dylan's Rolling Thunder Revue is alive and well in the form of The Revival Tour." – American Songwriter
"Folk music was born from a rich tradition of giving and openness - and no one has done more to bring that original spirit back to the genre in recent years than Chuck Ragan has with The Revival Tour." – Flavorpill
Celebrating its sixth year fostering the rich folk tradition of giving and openness and propelled by an innate need to tell a story in its naked acoustic state, 2013's edition of The Revival Tour will kick off in March, featuring Dave Hause of Loved Ones, Rise Against frontman Tim McIlrath, LA's Jenny O., Americana singer/songwriter and original tour organizer Chuck Ragan, Seattle-based singer/songwriter Rocky Votolato, NJ-based singer/songwriter Jenny Owen Youngs with additional artists to be announced.
Starting its five-week trek around the US in Corpus Christi on March 15th (and a rousing return at Austin's SxSW the following night), The Revival Tour will bring the much-celebrated camaraderie that it's based on and the collaborations that are bred from its essence. "We're proud to say that we're embarking on the 6th year of The Revival Tour and we're honored to be kicking off in the great state of Texas," said Ragan. "I've always been overwhelmed and inspired at how these collaborations and combinations of artists come together tour after tour." Adds Owen Youngs, "I'm most excited to throw down with some incredible songwriters and give a good time to the folks who come out to the shows."
