Canadian songstresses Carolyn Mark and Lederhosen Lucil are joining forces to bring their music to Eastern Canada, on what they have dubbed as the "Stopping and Shopping" tour. According to Lucil's web site, they're planning to stop in antique shops and used clothing stores along their tour path, hence the name.
The singers have a total of 10 cities lined-up in their sights, with the first hit being Toronto on March 1st. Their final shows will see the singer/songwriters play the Maritimes, with two gigs in New Brunswick and one in Nova Scotia; the location of their very last show is up in the air at the moment, though it looks like it will be in Quebec City.
Carolyn Mark leaves her home of Victoria for the wilds of the East in order to promote her latest album 'The Pros and Cons of Collaboration', which saw release through Mint Records. The entirety of the record is up for listening at www.newmusiccanada.com, for those who are so inclined. Kingston's Lederhosen Lucil's last album was 'Tales From The Pantry, which was released in 2003. Before the "Stopping and Shopping" tour commences, Lucil (real name Krista Muir) will explore the lands of Australia and New Zealand.
