LOS ANGELES (CelebrityAccess) American folk icon Joan Baez is releasing a new album “Whistle Down the Wind” on March 2nd, and has now announced a final stint of touring with a run of shows dubbed the “Fare Thee Well Tour.”
The tour kicks off on September 11th in Ithaca, NY, and wraps up in Minneapolis on October 6th.
Each ticket purchase includes a CD or digital download of “Whistle Down the Wind,” her first release since “Day After Tomorrow” in 2008.
Baez and producer Joe Henry recorded “Whistle Down The Wind” in just 10 days, alongside a core band of instrumentalists. The album includes songs written by Tom Waits, Anohni, Mary Chapin Carpenter, Josh Ritter, Eliza Gilkyson and more.
“I’m looking forward to being on the road with a beautiful new album of which I am truly proud,” Baez said in a statement. “I welcome the opportunity to share this new music as well as longtime favorites with my audiences around the world.”
