Coming To A Town Near You: The 2013 Revival Tour

Videos by American Songwriter

Five years ago, Chuck Ragan took a short break from Hot Water Music to launch the Revival Tour, an annual acoustic tour featuring performances by a rotating group of Americana artists, indie-folksters and punk-rockers. Like a stripped-down, tattooed version of the Rolling Thunder Revue, the Revival Tour allowed performers to jump onstage with one another, resulting in something that didn’t resemble a concert as much as an old-school hootenanny, with spontaneous jams occurring every night.

What began as a collaboration between friends has since grown into something bigger, and the 2013 Revival Tour — featuring Ragan, The Loved Ones’ Dave Hause, Rise Against’s Tim McIlrath, Rocky Votolato, Jenny Owen Youngs, Jenny O., and other special guests — will launch on March 15th in Corpus Christi, Texas.

“I’m always excited to venture out on another Revival Tour, to say the least,” Ragan tells American Songwriter. “The lineup always changes, the songs are always captivating, the people are genuine and it always moves, breathes, and evolves. Seeing and hearing a group of players and singers that I admire enter the bus and stage as strangers and leave as life-long friends is nothing short of a modern-day miracle to me. Not to mention the memorable collaborations, recordings, and one of kind moments that folks leave behind while sharing good music with good people along the way. I’m thrilled, honored and genuinely anxious to see what will unfold with this group of songwriters in 2013!”
