Crooked Still to reunite for November concerts

, Staff

After a three-year hiatus, Crooked Still have announced plans to reunite for a special weekend of concerts in New England. The veteran Massachusetts-based Americana favorites will deliver a homecoming performance at The Sinclair in Cambridge on Saturday, November 29. Tickets for the show will go on sale Friday at noon through Ticketmaster for $25.

Crooked Still will kick off the weekend of shows in Maine with a performance at the Strand Theatre in Rockland on Friday, November 28. They’ll conclude the series with a performance at the Academy of Music Theater in Northampton on Sunday, November 30. The show will serve as a celebration of the 20th anniversary of Signature Sounds, the band’s Northampton-based record label.

After a decade of constant activity, the members of Crooked Still decided to take a break from touring in 2012 in order to pursue other projects and recharge creatively. One year quickly became three as Aoife O’Donovan released her debut solo album (2013’s Fossils), Greg Liszt toured and recorded with his band the Deadly Gentlemen, and Corey DiMario, Brittany Haas, and Tristan Clarridge all collaborated with a long list of various artists.

Crooked Still’s last offering of all new material was 2010’s Some Strange Country.

In related news, O’Donovan will perform a solo set at the Newport Folk Festival at Fort Adams State Park in Rhode Island on Saturday, July 26.
