The Deep Dark Woods (solo) Europe tour starts this weekend17-08-2021
A message from The Deep Dark Woods:
"Hello everybody - well, we’ve got some sad news. Due to Norway’s Covid regulations, Canadians are still not able to get into the country, so we have to cancel all of our Norwegian shows. Because of these cancelations, it’s become logistically impossible to bring the full band on tour, so Ryan Boldt will be playing a solo Deep Dark Woods set for the remaining shows. It breaks our hearts to have to do this. The band was so excited to be back together after two years of being apart, but unfortunately we will have to wait a little longer. On a brighter note, Ryan has been added to a tour in Sweden. All the new dates are below. We hope to see you soon!"
On Changing Faces, The Deep Dark Woods’ sixth album, Boldt works through the complications, unique to him and recognizable to many, of leaving one place for the next .
This record will surprise you by how gradual yet complete a turn The Deep Dark Woods have made from cabin cozy jam band to pan-Atlantic folk revivalist collective . Boldt’s delicate melodies and metallic-stringed bite rattle centuries-old folkloric ghosts and personal demons alike. The Deep Dark Woods, a band with few fixed members, is a vessel for Boldt, keyboard wonder Geoff Hilhorst and frequent collaborators, Kacy & Clayton and Evan Cheadle, among others, to find their own vocabulary for translating traditional folk forms – Irish waltzes, Broadside Ballads, ominous lullabies – to contemporary electric terms .
