This is an early shout out, because exciting things are happening in September. One of my favourite current singer-songwriters Jeremy Quentin aka Small Houses from Philadelphia (originally Flint, Michigan) will be touring in Europe this September/October and the tour schedule includes four shows in Finland (+ in-store performance at 8raita record store) with the wonderful local group Ochre Room. I couldn’t be any happier. Wonderful American troubadour touring with a Finnish band that I love dearly. More about this closer to the tour, but this is the schedule at the moment, so you can already mark your calendars.

11.9. Klubi, Tampere (with Ochre Room)

And here are couple of great recent Small Houses videos that I haven’t posted before. Excellent new song Old Habits first and then great live version of I Saw Santa Fe from his great 2013 album Exactly Where I Wanted To Be (Yer Bird Records). I Saw Santa Fe is a video from Halfway House Sessions at SXSW.
And here’s Don’t Try by the excellent Ochre Room.
Update 23.7.2013: Added Kahvila Soppi, Rauma to the tour schedule.
