Laura will be touring with Neko Case in June, and also driving herself around the UK for a string of solo dates in October.
“I get to leave the kids at home. It’s going to be a like a spa retreat,” says Veirs.
Veirs will be playing songs from her catalog of 10 records, focusing mostly on recent releases “Warp and Weft” and “July Flame.”
“It’s just me and my electric guitar,” says Veirs. “I’ll be playing around with my loop pedal and trying out some new songs, too. I can’t wait.”
