Spirit Family Reunion join Ashtonia this April; Europe tour in August/September23-02-2017
Spirit Family Reunion began singing together on the street corners of New York City in 2009. Since that time they have travelled the highways of America and Europe delivering raw, high energy, honest music. They have shared the stage with musical heroes such as Pete Seeger and Levon Helm, and have give notable performances at major festivals including Stage Coach, Austin City Limits and the legendary Newport Folk Festival three times.
Their debut European tour in 2016 led them to Tønder Festival, Open House Festivaland Misty Fields amongst many others. Straight after this first tour Tønder Festival already contracted them for this year and thus a seed was planted for a 2017 tour. Today we're happy to share the first bunch of August/September tourdates including the new Sthlm Americana festival and an appearance at London's Bush Hall. In April the Ashton Brothers transform the monumental Slot Zeist to their own Ashtonia. Think about a traveling circus from the 1930s.. clowns, fire-eaters, acrobats, musicians and trapeze acts. Very exiting to share with you that Spirit Family Reunion will be the houseband of Ashtonia! The band has self-produced and self-released two full-lenght studio album (2012's No Separation and 2015's Hands Together) along with multiple songbooks and other collections of recordings. They are currently working on a new record.
