On October 3, acclaimed singer-songwriters Shelby Lynne and Allison Moorer will launch the "Side By Side Tour," marking the first time these two talented, blonde sisters will tour together. Le sorelle – that's Italian for "sisters"— kick things off with an appearance at the 10th Annual Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival, held in San Francisco's Golden Gate Park. The duo will bring the tour to a close with a homecoming show at the Saenger Theatre in Mobile, Alabama on December 4, as the two grew up in nearby Frankville.
In this intimate, acoustic show, Shelby and Allison will accompany one another as they perform songs from throughout their respective careers and toss in a few surprise cover songs as well. They're giving fans a peek at their rehearsals at: http://www.shelbylynne.com/news/. Go there if you want to see what this pair looks like working together; side by side, if ya will!
Lynne will release a vinyl edition of Tears, Lies, and Alibis on October 19.
In the spring of 2010, Moorer released her critically acclaimed album Crows. The album is a refined and lyrically honest collection of songs that is a marked stylistic departure from her previous work.
