The Brooklyn quartet has launched an invitation to teachers and educators, offering them to bring their students on their upcoming American tour.
A few months after announcing the dates of their tour, the four musicians created a surprise by offering American students the opportunity to attend the soundchecks of their concerts in the United States. Adrianne Lenker and her gang seek to “bring an educational component to the touring process”. The quartet explains: “We hope that students can attend the soundchecks, ask questions and participate in a discussion about creativity, music, concerts, songwriting.”
This unprecedented initiative aims to make accessible to the younger generations, who probably have some fans of the group in their ranks, the reverse side of organizing a tour, but also the creative process specific to the members of Big Thief. The latter go so far as to invite teachers to take part in the visits by formulating their own ideas and proposals.
The message ends with the email address at which teachers are invited to contact the group to organize these events.
An upcoming world tour
The first part of this tour, in support of the album Dragon New Warm Mountain I Believe in You, which we were talking about here when it released in February 2022, is set to debut on January 31, 2023 in Burlington, Vermont. After Philadelphia, Nashville or New York at Radio City Music Hall on March 2, it will continue in England and Europe, where the group will stop in Belgium and the Netherlands, but unfortunately not in France.
The initiative seems to be receiving great success from their followers, as evidenced by the comments “please do this in [Tel Aviv, Scotland, UK …]” which follow one another under the post. And it inspires. “Please, do this in Europe!”
