Dave Schools to Tour with Mickey Hart Band

The Mickey Hart Band have confirmed a 14-date late fall tour. For this outing, Hart’s band will feature vocalists Crystal Monee Hall and Tim Hockenberry, bassist Dave Schools, drummer Ian “Inx” Herman, guitarist Gawain Matthews, percussionist Sikuru Adepoju, and keyboardist Ben Yonas. The outing will kick off in Eugene, OR at the McDonald Theatre on November 30. Fan club pre-sale and VIP tickets go on sale today at, with 100% of the ticketing fees going to Music Therapy. The general on sale takes place October 1.

Hart is currently in the studio recording his new album, which will be released in the spring of 2012. The genesis of Hart’s new batch of songs stems from a series of light waves Hart sampled on The Dead’s 2009 tour. He’s since fleshed the compositions out in the studio and recruited Robert Hunter to write a fresh batch of lyrics. On October 11, 2011, Smithsonian Folkways Recordings will also release Mickey Hart Collection, which captures his world music recordings.

Is David still touring with your band this in July 2012? If by chance will the band be able to stop and play in the Arlington or Alexandria, Virginia area?
