Splitting his time between being a solo artist and a member of the Hidden Cameras, Gentlemen Reg will continue to support his latest solo disc, Darby & Joan, in the traditional way: by touring. The southern Ontario singer-songwriter will hit a few of the many summer festivals in his home province, with some club dates thrown in for good measure.
After a stint at Ottawa's WestFest with Cowboy Junkies, Gentleman Reg will perform at Pride Toronto at the end of June. In July he'll hit the massive Ottawa Bluesfest, where Broken Social Scene, Peter Elkas, and k-os will also be belting it out. Last but not least comes the Hillside Festival in Guelph from July 22nd to 24th, where fans can also catch the Arcade Fire.
Gentleman Reg's third solo disc in five years, Darby & Joan appeared on shelves last year. The 13-track album has succeeding in bringing Gentleman Reg tons of attention, and is now available for digital download thanks to the nice people at Arts & Crafts Records.
