“Summer Is The Champion” Free on Google Play

You may have heard that Google has consolidated its Android market and music stores. Now they are consolidating the seasons: Spring hasn’t yet arrived in North America (or has it?) but Laura Veirs’ “Summer is The Champion” is served up on Google Play through the weekend for a free download. Whichever the case, it’s a cause for celebration!

ps. If you haven’t yet heard July Flame in its entirety, do yourself a favor and pick up, or download a copy.

Upcoming UK and US Tours, Videos

Laura here. It’s a dark and stormy night and I’m writing to express my thanks for your ongoing support over the years. Tim Young and Alex Guy and I are headed out on a tour (the last one for quite some time as I’m digging into songwriting in the coming months) and we’d love to see you! We are going to the UK on Saturday, and after that we’ll be playing a few select shows throughout the US.  On most days be doing a matinee family show and a ‘normal’ show at night featuring some new original songs as well as many of the old faves.  Please spread the word about these shows to your friends — we rely a lot on word of mouth. THANK YOU!

I had the amazing experience of singing on stage with Peter of Peter, Paul and Mary last week! Here’s some footage from our show in Portland, OR. It was an incredibly uplifting show! – Laura

Super XX Man & Son’s Ode To Laura’s “The Fox”

Performing “The Fox” in their adopted home of Melbourne Australia, former neighbor and musician Scott Garred (Super XX Man) and son Cy deliver a charming tribute.

Cy knew all the words, had to correct me and everything. I came home from work one night and he said, “Daddy, I have a new favorite song and it’s by Laura Veirs.”

Laura with Peter: “Puff The Magic Dragon”

Laura will be guest starring at Peter Yarrow’s show at Alberta Theater on Friday Jan 20. Laura and Peter will sing “Puff the Magic Dragon” together as well as “The Fox.” Classic stuff!
