“Campfire Caravan” featuring The Brothers Comatose, Mipso, and The Lil Smokies hosts three of today’s foremost emerging indie Americana bands as they trek across the United States – stopping in more than 30 cities from Sept. 26 through Nov. 18, 2017. “Campfire Caravan” swings through Nashville for a sneak peak of the 15-musician road show at the 18th Annual AMERICANAFEST 2017 (Sept. 13) prior to kicking off the tour at the Pub Station in Billings, MT. Fueled by Lagunitas, “Campfire Caravan” travels to the West Coast, The Rockies, Midwest, East Coast and South before concluding the tour at The Orange Peel in Asheville, NC. A comprehensive list of tour dates is below, and interviews and hi-res photos are available upon request.

Americana, bluegrass and country music genres are in-the-midst of a renaissance. In all corners of the country, artists are making a name for themselves with remarkably refreshing takes on traditional genres; efforts that are redefining the music beyond simple categorizations. The Brothers Comatose, Mipso, and The Lil Smokies are of this ilk. Each reside in different parts of America – The Brothers Comatose from the West Coast, Mipso from North Carolina’s Triangle region, and The Lil Smokies from the Rocky Mountains. Bringing their own unique interpretations of, and inspired contributions to, the evolution of traditional American music, each act sets a new bar with their compelling live performances. Together on one stage – music fans will be treated to charismatic singers, virtuosic string-slingers, complex and nuanced songwriting and compositions, and more.

With each band quickly rising the ranks, “Campfire Caravan” is a nod to the musicians’ early days playing music, when they’d perform for friends and family in basements, living rooms, and around campfires. “Campfire Caravan” celebrates the American tradition of gathering communities around music. In an untraditional format, all three bands rotate in the lineup with no single ensemble acting as the tour headliner. A completely different show will be presented in each city with spontaneous collaborations amongst the groups taking place between sets.

“Campfire Caravan” hosts a raucous party with a wholesome spirit at premier venues across the country, including Bowery Ballroom (NYC), Crystal Ballroom (Portland, OR), Ogden Theater (Denver, CO), and 9:30 Club (Washington, DC). The Brothers Comatose tour in support of a brand-new single, “Don’t Make Me Get Up And Go” – produced by indie-rock legend John Vanderslice, in advance of AMERICANAFEST 2017 (Sept. 8, 2017). Mipso showcases their recent #3 Billboard Bluegrass Chart-ranking, Coming Down The Mountain (April 2017). The Lil Smokies release their sophomore studio album, Changing Shades, in Sept. 2017.

    Bros comatose are one of the next bands around. So fun and engaging. I used to give them some certain edible goodies when they used to play in Eugene. I haven’t seen them in awhile. I’d love to see the other bands as I always love something new.
