Rachel Harrington & the Knock Outs in Europe, 4 Mar.-5 Apr. 2012

Seattle-based 'country soul' singer Rachel Harrington will be touring for a month in Europe in March and April with her new band the Knock Outs - 'some of the finest female musicians in the Northwest' - and their new album, Rachel Harrington & the Knock Outs.

Rachel Harrington won the songwriting contest at MerleFest 2011. Three advance mixes from the album can be heard on Bandcamp. The band is said to be 'dedicated to excavating the very soul of American roots music', and some of their music is clearly influenced by and compatible with bluegrass.

The tour begins on 4 March with seven dates in the Netherlands and Belgium, continues with seventeen dates in England, and concludes with six dates in Scotland. Full details are on the Rachel Harrington website.
