PREPARATION

Currently, Erin is preparing for the tour by recording a new album of original songs over the winter, filming a music video to promote the tour, and preparing for the cycling aspect of the journey by going on as many rides as possible this winter! She is also really excited to be joining her bandmates Gabrielle Louise and Kendra McKinley (touring as Inglish, Louise & McKinley) in February and March of 2013 before the Earth * Bike * Banjo tour begins.

TOUR ROUTE

For April, Erin's approximate tour route and more is already up on her webpage (www.erininglish.com/EarthBikeBanjoTour2013) and her progress will be updated on her blog as more develops. More to come soon!

SEE YOU ON THE ROAD!

~ ABOUT ERIN ~

ERIN INGLISH, a native of the California Central Coast, plays solid Scruggs-style banjo, and her unique presentation of voice and banjo is reminiscent of the sounds of John Hartford. Erin has lived in India, Madagascar, Bulgaria and Serbia, and her songwriting reflects her worldly travels and grounding passion for sustainability and art. From the conscientious messages in her songwriting and performing, to her consulting work as an energy efficiency and sustainability specialist, Erin is a consummate, humanistic storyteller.

Risks and challenges

Well, an obvious risk is the physical demands of riding 1000 miles on a heavily-loaded bicycle! Also, public displays of banjo tolerance has become gradually more acceptable, but there are still parts of California where this is risky business! But the good news is that Erin Inglish is ready to face both challenges, and cannot wait to make this dream of creating an album of original songs and touring by bicycle in celebration of music, sustainability, and the natural beauty of California!

After the project is funded, potential setbacks include flat tires, broken strings, rain, poor road conditions, waking up to find five additional banjos strapped to her bicycle...the list goes on. But Erin is ready to face it all! Will you back her?!
