John K. Samson & The Provincial Band launch Canadian Tour

In support of his upcoming solo album Provincial, out January 24th, 2012, John K. Samson announces a Canadian Tour. These shows will feature songs from the new album backed by The Provincial Band, comprised of Shotgun Jimmie on guitar (Jimmie will also open the shows), Doug Friesen (Pete Elkas, Bidiniband) on electric and upright bass and Doug MacGregor (Constantines) on drums. John will also perform a selection of solo renditions of material spanning his 20 years as a songwriter.
Traveling four routes woven into the prairie landscape, Provincial, the first solo album by The Weakerthans singer/songwriter John K. Samson, finds familiar landmarks and forgotten ones; shivers through long winters and uncertain memories; works its way home.

This Spring fans can experience this journey with John K. Samson & The Provincial Band.
