Since posting the first list of tour dates for Bob Dylan & the Poetry of the Blues: An Evening With Writer Michael Gray, so many have been added and announced piecemeal that it seems like time to list the whole lot again (except, obviously, for the warm-up dates already done). So here goes. Starting in the US on the last day of March, the tour also visits England, Canada and Ireland.

Not all venue tickets are on sale yet - at Stroud they won't go on sale till mid-April; in Toronto I'm told the venue's website is adding my event to their list as from today - but here it is (including new information re the US dates at Nyack NY and at Farmingdale, Long Island NY):

okay this is a crazy schedule. back and forth across the ocean!! i guess you do what you can! i'm in the DC suburbs but will be in LONDON when you are there but on the tarmack [sp]. Please advise if you will be doing anything else stateside; politics and prose in DC would be a great venue (as far as interested parties, not sure about space considerations). i hope you can make it. Cheers, Lori ( i remain anon not because i really care but because i don't wish to get a blog id at this point)
