Back home and back to normal but everything is a little bit sweeter. Wyrd Fest was a ton a fun and it was so great to see everybody again.

LANTERN NORTH AMERICAN TOUR

We would love to play the south and bring our brand of blues to the place where it originated.

Weird Canada review of Lantern
Thanks for the kind words T and agreed. New Canadiana :: Lantern – Stranger I Come. Stranger I Leave.
