New Northwest and Northeast Shows in July

Adored Mailing List Recipients,

This July, we will work our way across the continent from the Northwest to Northeast and we can now announce some more tour dates on both ends of the run.

We’ve added a second night at Edgefield in Troutdale, OR followed by Britt Pavilion in Jacksonville, OR, Idaho Botanical Garden in Boise, and Marymoor Park in Redmond, WA. Calexico will join us to open up these dates.

Then, after heading east through Canada (and playing five shows along the way), we’ll visit New Haven, CT and Portland, ME – sandwiched between the previously announced stops in Cooperstown, NY and Shelburne, VT. We’re also excited to announce we’ll be headlining Newport Folk Festival on Saturday, July 25.

Limited pre-sale tickets for these new dates will go on sale starting tomorrow, April 15th, at 10am local time at

You can find the full list of dates on the tour page and join us on Facebook or Twitter for more updates.

We stopped by Q on CBC while we were in Toronto a few weeks back for an interview and stripped-down performances of “Make You Better” and “The Wrong Year.”

All the best,

The Decemberists
