TOUR UPDATE 2021

We’re sorry to announce the postponement of our Hit The Road tour featuring Leiah Maitland, Sean Bonner and Shorthouse. But in the current Covid situation, the safety of musicians, crews, venue staff and audiences is paramount.

Along with our partner promoters and venues The Mash House, Websters & Tolbooth we’re working to reschedule the shows into early 2022, with tickets valid for new dates.
