Sharon Van Etten on tour with Marissa Nadler and Junip

Having recently performed at the Pitchfork Music Festival in June, ambient folk crooner Sharon Van Etten continues her tour of the US in anticipation of her new album, Epic, out October 5 on Ba Da Bing Records.

Van Etten will play select shows in the Southeast with sophisticated dream-folk artist Marissa Nadler in September, followed by her first nationwide tour in November with indie-folk singer José Gonzalez’s new band, Junip.
