Shovels & Rope Announce Intimate “Bare Bones” Fall Tour

Acclaimed rock duo Shovels & Rope announces an intimate, acoustic fall tour titled Bare Bones. The award-winning husband & wife team of Cary Ann Hearst and Michael Trent will kick things off in their hometown of Charleston, SC with two nights at The Riviera Theater on September 29th & 30th. The 16-date run will find the band performing cozy venues in cities that include Winston-Salem, NC, Columbus, OH, Ann Arbor, MI, Kansas City, MO, Oxford, MS and Chattanooga, TN (see tour dates below).
