Tony Lucca and Derik Hultquist team up to hit the road together this fall// 9/28 @ClubCafé

Nashville performers Tony Lucca and Derik Hultquist are planning a 13-date tour together this fall, including stops in the Southeast, Northeast, and Midwest. (See below for full tour schedule.) The tour kicks off in Decatur, GA on September 19th and wraps in Nashville on October 7th. Tickets for these shows are on-sale now
 
Says Lucca about the planned outing: “I first saw Derik on YouTube, actually. Needless to say, I was quite impressed. We met for coffee to talk about touring and things just seemed to fall into place. Personally, I like touring with someone whose music I’m not entirely familiar with as it really is the best way to get familiar with it. I’m really looking forward to doing just that.”  
 
Says Hultquist of the tour pairing: “I can’t say enough about how excited I am to hit the road with Tony this fall. He has a stellar voice and I feel lucky to be a part of this tour. I know we’ll get a chance to share the stage a few times – I only hope I can keep up.”

About Tony Lucca:  Nashville-based singer-songwriter Tony Lucca spent last year focusing on his catalog, and he hit the road for an extensive cross-country run with Alex Dezen (of The Damnwells) and Christian Lopez, as well as an outing to the West Coast and Texas with Tyrone Wells. Lucca also celebrated the 10th anniversary of his album, Canyon Songs, with a very special show at 3rd & Lindsley in Nashville. At the show, he performed the album in its entirety track-for-track, as well as a second set of Lucca classics from over the years. Joining him onstage at this very special event were “American Idol” winner and recent tour mate David Cook, Lady Antebellum guitarist Jason “Slim” Gambill, Nick Bearden of Jamestown Revival, Tim Jones of Truth and Salvage Co., and tour mate Christian Lopez. Also in 2016, Lucca released two EPs of material from a previously recorded session at the legendary Sun Studio (in Memphis) and another session he’d done in Muscle Shoals, AL in 2006.

Prior to hitting the road with Hultquist this fall, Lucca has confirmed a residency in Nashville this summer with a series of four free shows at The Country (110 28th Avenue North, Nashville); one already took place on June 28th, and three more shows will follow on July 27th (6 p.m.), August 23rd (8 p.m.), and September 6th (8 p.m.). Billed as “Tony Lucca and Friends,” the residency is an opportunity for Lucca to work on some new material for a forthcoming album in a live setting. Confirmed special guests for these shows include Dustin Christensen, Ernie Halter, Paul Pfau, Gabe Dixon, Barrett Baber, and many more.

About Derik Hultquist:  On his new album, Southern Iron, produced by Frank Liddell (Miranda Lambert, Brandi Carlile, Aubrie Sellers, Lee Ann Womack) and Eric Masse (Mikky Ekko, Robert Ellis, Andrew Combs), Derik Hultquist offers rich portraits of reflection, anticipation, and stillness via lush rock-and-roll. This is his first length effort on Carnival Recording Company/30 Tigers, the follow-up to three EPs, Whether ReportLeaning on the Rain, and Mockingbird’s Mouth. This recent effort earned him widespread attention and opening slots for complementary heavy hitters including Sturgill Simpson, The Lone Bellow, Toad the Wet Sprocket, Joan Osborne, Jackie Greene, Bob Schneider, Matthew Logan Vasquez, Sean Hayes, Sean McConnell, Ben Sollee, as well as his own headlining tour.

The powerhouse ensemble’s hypnotic live performances have allowed them to tour alongside Santana, Dave Matthews Band, The Allman Brothers Band, Plant & Page and many others.

 

Now with their most release of The Movement, the journey continues. Rusted Root founder & front man, Michael Glabicki says, “The Movement is an extremely joyous recording with seriously deep undertones.
