Keller Williams announces fall tour including Nov. date in Huntington
He may be in the thick of the summer festival season, but the amazing one-man band and mind-blowing multi-instrumentalist Keller Williams has just announced the release of a fall album and a tour that will stop in Huntington.
Williams, whose new CD, “Funk” will come out Nov. 12, has just announced a massive 2013 Fall Tour. Stopping in more than 40 markets through the end of the year, Keller performs his signature one-man-band solo sets and also collaborates with The Travelin’ McCourys, More Than A Little, and The Keels in select cities.
Special guests - moe.’s Al Schnier & Vinnie Amico - join for a short run in October as Floodwood, and a few co-headlining shows with fast finger ukulele composer Jake Shimabukuro will soon be released. Also announced today, Keller Williams with The Travelin’ McCourys join Mumford & Sons’ Gentleman of the Road Stopover in Guthrie, Oklahoma on Sept. 6-7.
Williams, who is in the region Sunday, July 21 with a stop at All Good Music Festival and Campout, outside of Columbus in Legend Valley, will return to the V Club, 741 6th Ave., on Saturday, Nov. 2 after a Friday night Nov. 1 stop at the Metropolitan in Morgantown. Williams is also making an August festival stop at Camp Barefoot in Bartow, W.Va.
Presale for most Fall Tour dates begin at 10 a.m. (Mountain Time) Wednesday, July 17. Pre-sale participants, lovingly dubbed SUPER FREEKS, can purchase tickets directly through kellerwilliams.net prior to the general public on sale, for the lowest service fee out there. Those who take advantage of the presale will be entered for the opportunity to enjoy a special SUPER FREEK perk: in advance of each show, two winners will be chosen at random to receive a signed tour poster and the chance to hang out with Keller backstage after the show.
Culled from recent live shows with Keller’s most recent muse - his 6-piece funk band dubbed Keller Williams with More Than A Little – “Funk’s” 10 tracks find Keller performing new, super-funky versions of Williams’ originals and an unexpected collection of cover songs that pay deep homage to the genre’s roots. FUNK pre-order will begin in September at kellerwilliams.net . Additional information, including details on Keller’s always-killer presale prize packages, will be announced soon.
Before fall, Keller Williams finishes up a busy summer season, performing a slew of festivals with each of his various projects: at Northwest String Summit, Arise Festival, Interlocken and 3 Sisters Festival with Keller & The Keels; Grey Fox, All Good, Roots N Blues N BBQ, Bristol Rhythm & Roots Reunion Festival, Rockygrass and MagFest with Keller Williams with The Travelin’ McCourys; Equifunk and Camp Barefoot with Keller Williams with More Than A Little, and some additional solo festival appearances.
