In support of her 2020 album Saint Cloud, Katie Crutchfield (aka Waxahatchee) is returning to Dublin and Belfast.
Indie act Waxahatchee, real name Katie Crutchfield, has announced dates at Dublin's Pepper Canister Church and Black Box Belfast for April 2023.
The European and UK tour will mark the songwriter’s first time in Ireland in eight years and her first solo tour since 2015.
All dates are on sale as of today, December 2nd, and can be purchased at waxahatchee.com/shows. Her Dublin shows are promoted by Selective Memory.
Waxahatchee’s last solo record was 2020’s Saint Cloud, but the artist has since teamed up with singer-songwriter Jess Williamson as for the country project of Plains, with the album I Walked With You A Ways.
Crutchfield, previously a member of P.S. Eliot., grew up in Alabama, which inspired the moniker Waxahatchee (after the Creek of the same name).
The 33-year-old indie artist has released five albums to date: American Weekend (2012), Cerulean Salt (2013), Ivy Tripp (2015), Out in the Storm (2017) and Saint Cloud (2020).
Her latest solo album saw the eleven songs earn Crutchfield comparisons to Lucinda Williams and early Dylan, warming listeners with hard-won sunlight and unexpected peace.
The D.I.Y. fuzz that pervades the previous Waxahatchee albums—and the lo-fi punk records she made with her twin sister, Allison, under the name P.S. Eliot—has given way to the unadorned sound of an older country-blues tradition.
