The Wooden Sky : Cross-Canada Tour Dates

The Wooden Sky is the sound of collective will; a group of individuals coming together to forge something bigger. With a new record and new friends to help them play it, the Wooden Sky are poised to push “folk rock” into something new, exciting, and earnest. And they're aiming to spread their 'don't call it alt-country' sounds across Canada by touring through central Canada on their way to performing at the Vancouver Olympics in February. And really, I dare to to listen to the immensely addictive and satisfying single "Oh My God (It Still Means A Lot To Me)" without humming the refrain for the remainder of the day.

After a VERY successful 2009 that included the release of the critically acclaimed If I Don't Come Home, You'll Know I'm Gone, a cross-Canada Bedrooms and Backstreets alternative spaces tour, a North American tour with Elliott Brood, and 'A Documentary in Pieces', a series of short films documenting their aforementioned B&B tour, the band has no intention of letting up in 2010. Their latest release topped numerous 'best of 2009' lists, which will hopefully keep them warm as the trek across the snowy terrain of the North. The tour starts January 22nd in Kingston at the Grad Club, heads out east, and then cuts all the way Nationwide and wraps up at the Olympic Village in Vancouver on February 25th.
