Thanks to everyone at Capitol Hill Block Party here in Seattle and the kind folks in Calgary at the Calgary Folk Fest for an amazing weekend. We are resting up in the sunshine of Seattle today before starting back out on tour this week. We are in Revelstoke, BC this Wednesday and rolling on westward as time goes on, check out the full dates here: Tourin', Tourin', It's Never Borin'.
Tour rolls on, tonight we are back in Philadelphia, Washington tomorrow and off to NYC for a couple shows this weekend. Happy Canada Day to our countrymen and a happy Independence Day to our friends in the south. Our thoughts go out to the folks in La Ronge who after being amazing hosts were evacuated from their homes the very next day.
While were at home we stopped by the CBC Q studios to play a few songs and chat with the amazing Talia Schlanger. Here's a video they posted of us playing the song 'The Lonesome Death of Helen Betty Osborne' from our first record.

Thanks to all our friends across the prairies, tonight we are in the fine city of Edmonton then off to the Napatak Ramble. After a short break will be off to the East Coast US for a few shows. We have added a show in Revelstoke, BC as well as in Sacramento, CA. Full list of dates here
Let's be ready. Comes out tomorrow in the USA and we are kicking things off in Minneapolis tomorrow! Our friends at KCRW are streaming the entire record on their site and you can take a listen here: http://www.kcrw.com/music/shows/album-preview/the-wooden-sky-lets-be-ready
We are pleased to announce that our album 'Let's be ready' will be released in the US/UK/EU on June 16th via our friends at Nevado Records. We are also coming to a town very near you on our Swimming in Strange Waters summer tour. Check out the tour page for more details.
It feels like it's been a long cold winter in the fine city of Toronto, as the snow begins to melt inspiration can't be far behind! With that in mind we are excited to be starting up the machine again and taking this show on the road. Wooden Sky will be hitting the road starting with a few dates in Quebec and many more to follow. We also have some exciting news for our friends in the United States of America. To our friends in the EU/UK it's been too long and we're working on plans to visit your fine shores as well.
