The newly announced shows mainly will take place in September in various Western U.S. cities, although the group also has added a November 11 concert in Philadelphia to its itinerary.

Among the new September gigs include performances in Sacramento and Fresno, California; Tempe and Tucson, Arizona; Las Vegas; Salt Lake City; Portland, Oregon; and Seattle. The Magpie Salute also will play California’s Kaaboo Del Mar Festival and Colorado’s Telluride Blues & Brews Festival.

The band’s 2017 U.S. trek gets underway July 26 in Indianapolis, and the group also has a number of European concerts lined up in June and July.

As previously reported, The Magpie Salute’s debut album features 10 tracks — one new original studio recording called “Omission” and nine live performances captured in front of an audience in Woodstock, New York. The live tracks include renditions of The Black Crowes’ “What Is Home” and “Wiser Time,” as well as covers of songs by Delaney and Bonnie, War, Pink Floyd, The Faces and Bob Marley.
