After travelling to the UK and Europe this year to perform, as well as playing festival gigs all summer, Mo Kenney is hitting the Canadian highway with a band for her first headlining tour. The 10 dates include stops in Toronto, Hamilton, Winnipeg, Regina, Swift Current, Calgary and Saint Albert; and two shows with Joel Plaskett and Symphony Nova Scotia for Halifax Pop Explosion at the Rebecca Cohn. Mo is opening for East Coast originals Sloan in Saint Albert and sharing the stage with Rachel Sermanni in Toronto.
This tour comes after a very busy and inspiring year for Mo. Since the release of her debut recording in September 2012, she has toured the country with Joel Plaskett and The Emergency and Ron Sexsmith, selling record numbers of CDs offstage and gleaning outstanding reviews. She has played the prestigious Iceland Airwaves Festival, The Great Escape, and Green Man Festival; won the 2013 SOCAN Songwriting Prize award; was nominated for a CBC Radio 3 Bucky Award for Rookie of the Year and an ECMA for Rising Star Recording of the Year; and made the iTunes Best Singer Songwriters of 2012 list.
Be sure to check out one of these shows to hear your favourite songs and some new songs too from Mo’s next release!
