Baltimore’s favorite sons, The Bridge, head out for a 30-city, coast-to-coast, U.S tour this month that stretches through the end of February. The band begins with dates in the mid-Atlantic region before heading south for shows in Alabama, Louisiana and Texas, next making a full run up the West Coast to Washington before winding down to Colorado. The Bridge are touring behind Blind Man’s Hill, their brand new album on Hyena Records.
The 12-track collection hit number seven this week on Americana Radio chart, while the six piece unit is coming off a sold out New Year’s Eve show with the Rebirth Brass Band in Baltimore. After playing numerous summer festivals last year, as well as dates with Mike Gordon, Little Feat and Dark Star Orchestra, The Bridge have a growing word-of-mouth buzz based on word of their incendiary live performances. But while The Bridge’s sets are often laced with fierce improvisations that touch on numerous corners of American roots music, it’s the songwriting of founding members Cris Jacobs and Kenny Liner, resonating with odes to honey bees, poison wine and lives born to ramble, that is the cornerstone to their antique charm.
