gruff rhys tour 2012

Gruff Rhys 2012 tour was announced today. Gruff Rhys is best known for his work with Super Furry Animals and Neon Neon, in addition to his collaborations with Gorillaz, Danger Mouse, Sparklehorse, and Simian Mobile Disco. This tour will begin on the East Coast heading towards the Midwest and ending in New Orleans. It’s his “second investigative concert tour,” after his first “saw Gruff winding his way around South America in a search for his long lost, guitar-playing, poncho-wearing uncle, Rene Griffiths, was documented by Dylan Goch in their 2010 feature film Separado!” This time around, Gruff will be searching for “his relative John Evans, who left Wales in 1792 on a quest to find a mythical tribe of Welsh speaking Native Americans. Gruff will follow the path of John Evans using film, the written word, photo-story, social media and song to create an investigative road movie and album.” (press release)
