Third Man Records is excited to announce that Lillie Mae has confirmed her first tour dates for 2017. These dates include a headline show in Birmingham, AL, which is on sale now, an appearance at Luck Reunion at Willie Nelson’s Luck, Texas Ranch during SXSW, and shows supporting Ben Harper. The Nashville-based singer-songwriter-musician will be releasing her debut solo album produced by Jack White in the Spring. The complete itinerary is below.
Lillie Mae released her first Third Man single, “Nobody’s” b/w “The Same Eyes,” in 2014 as part of their ongoing Blue Series. Discovered by the legendary Cowboy Jack Clement when playing with her family band The Rische’s (formerly Jypsi), comprised of sisters Amber-Dawn, Scarlett, and Grace, and brother Frank, the country outfit can often still be heard at the historic Layla’s Bluegrass Inn in Nashville.
Lillie Mae has also spent considerable time as a member of White’s crack touring and recording combo,playing fiddle and mandolin while also lending vocals to such tracks as “Temporary Ground,” from 2014’s LAZARETTO. She also joined White on fiddle and backing vocals for a special acoustic performance on A Prairie Home Companion with Chris Thile last October.
