Funk bassist Freekbass is joining forces with acclaimed blues guitarist and singer Kelly Richey to record a new album. The two are currently in the studio with drummer Jyn Yates working on a record that is set for release in March 2013. After finishing up the album, the trio will then embark on a tour through the U.S. and Canada under the moniker The Kelly Richey Band. The group will kick things off in Mishawaka, IN on January 5 before making stops in the Midwest and Florida over the next few months. The band will then head to Canada for a two-night run at the Blues Can in Calgary, AB and a six-night run at the Blues on Whyte in Edmonton, AB. The full list of tour dates can be viewed below.
