The tour, which begins on May 31 in Chicago, treats the audiences to an evening of music, poetry, readings and storytelling.
The tour supports the June 5 release of KIN, Songs by Mary Karr and Rodney Crowell (Vanguard Records). The album, produced by Joe Henry, is a combination of two storytellers from different worlds, seamlessly blending verse, melody and poetry.
Karr is an award-winning poet and best selling memoirist who has taught at Harvard and Syracuse University, where she still holds a chair in literature. She is the recipient of numerous fellowships and awards, including a Guggenheim, a Radcliffe Bunting Fellowship, The Whiting Writer’s Award, and a Pushcart Prize.
Last year, Crowell released his memoir Chinaberry Sidewalks (Knopf/Random House).
