Mike and Leo Hitting the Road in the Fall

by -

Only one date announced, but this looks promising…

Billboard.com reports:

Former Phish bassist Mike Gordon and guitar legend Leo Kottke will hit the road this fall in support of their second collaborative album, “Sixty Six Steps.” Due Aug. 23 via RCA Victor, the set blends a handful of originals with such covers as Aerosmith’s “Sweet Emotion,” Fleetwood Mac’s “Oh Well” and Pete Seeger’s “Living in the Country.”

Although the lone confirmed date at deadline is a Sept. 23 appearance at the Austin City Limits Festival, Gordon tells Billboard.com the outing will last five weeks and hit every part of the United States. And while a handful of recent shows found Gordon and Kottke backed by percussionist Neil Symonette, the fall tour will return to a duo format.

I hate to sound like a high school yearbook signing, but I’ll see you guys in the fall. Have a good summer!

    Is Neil Symonette the diminutive form of American playwright Neil Simon?

    Did you see Paul Simon’s concert in the park? No, but I did see Paul Symonette play Sound of Silence in a thimble.
