Singer/songwriter Kathleen Edwards has begun setting up tour dates in support of her forthcoming Zoe/Rounder album, “Back to Me.” A handful of shows in her native Canada open Feb. 22 in Peterborough, Ont., with a smattering of U.S. shows set in March and May.
The night of the album’s release, Edwards will play New York’s Canal Room and appear on CBS’ “The Late Show With David Letterman.” A March 22 show is also set in Los Angeles. Judging by a steady stream of roadwork in support of her critically acclaimed 2003 debut, “Failer,” many more dates are likely to follow.
“Failer” debuted at No. 20 on Billboard’s Heatseekers chart and has sold 76,000 copies in the United States, according to Nielsen SoundScan.
Here are Edwards’ confirmed dates:
Feb. 22: Peterborough, Ont. (Gordon Best Theatre)
Feb. 23: Hamilton, Ont. (The Casbah)
Feb. 25-26: Wakefield, Quebec (The Black Sheep Inn)
March 1: New York (Canal Room)
March 22: Los Angeles (Knitting Factory)
May 10: Boston (Paradise)
May 11: Philadelphia (Theatre of Living Arts)
