Richmond Fontaine Duo in Ireland & Norway
Willy and Dan couldn’t be happier to get back to two of their favorite places in the world! These will be their only European dates of 2013, as Willy is busy working on a new project (stay tuned for more news) and finishing a new novel, and RF is hoping to get another record in the pipeline as well.
First stop is Roscrea, Ireland at Leap Castle. This is a must see gig as Leap Castle is known by many to be the most haunted Castle in the world! Then the boys are off to Listowel Writers’ Week where Willy is excited to see favorites Colum McCann, Colm Tóibín, and Peter Murphy. Willy will read as well as play a full gig with Dan.
Next stop is the Working Class Hero Festival in Drammen, Norway for a reading and a gig with our pal Dave Harding and the great Felice Brothers. Then on to a gig in Oslo at one of RF’s favorite clubs, MONO.
Hope to see you there and thanks for supporting Richmond Fontaine all these years!
