“Campfire Caravan” featuring The Brothers Comatose, Mipso, and The Lil Smokies hosts three of today’s foremost emerging indie Americana bands as they trek across the United States – stopping in more than 30 cities from Sept. 26 through Nov. 18, 2017.

Americana, bluegrass and country music genres are in-the- midst of a renaissance. In all corners of the country, artists are making a name for themselves with remarkably refreshing takes on traditional genres; efforts that are redefining the music beyond simple categorizations. The Brothers Comatose, Mipso, and The Lil Smokies are of this ilk. Each reside in different parts of America – The Brothers Comatose from the West Coast, Mipso from North Carolina’s Triangle region, and The Lil Smokies from the Rocky Mountains. Bringing their own unique interpretations of, and inspired contributions to, the evolution of traditional American music, each act sets a new bar with their compelling live performances. Together on one stage –music fans will be treated to charismatic singers, virtuosic string-slingers, complex and nuanced songwriting and compositions, and more.

With each band quickly rising the ranks, “Campfire Caravan” is a nod to the musicians’ early days playing music, when they’d perform for friends and family in basements, living rooms, and around campfires. “Campfire Caravan” celebrates the American tradition of gathering communities around music. In an untraditional format, all three bands rotate in the lineup with no single ensemble acting as the tour headliner. A completely different show will be presented in each city with spontaneous collaborations amongst the groups taking place between sets.

“Campfire Caravan” hosts a raucous party with a wholesome spirit at premier venues across the country, including Bowery Ballroom (NYC), Crystal Ballroom (Portland, OR), Ogden Theater (Denver, CO), and 9:30 Club (Washington, DC). The Brothers Comatose tour in support of a brand-new single, “Don’t Make Me Get Up And Go” – produced by indie-rock legend John Vanderslice, in advance of AMERICANAFEST 2017 (Sept. 8, 2017). Mipso showcases their recent #3 Billboard Bluegrass Chart-ranking, Coming Down The Mountain (April 2017). The Lil Smokies release their sophomore studio album, Changing Shades, in Sept. 2017.

The Brothers Comatose
Literal brothers, Alex (banjo and vocals) and Ben Morrison (guitar and vocals) of The Brothers Comatose grew up in a house that was known for its music parties. “The Morrison house was a gathering place for local musicians – everyone would bring an instrument, call out tunes, call out changes, and just play for hours” says Brothers Comatose bassist and Morrison music party goer, Gio Benedetti. “I learned more in that living room than in any class I ever took.” The brothers took this generous, inclusive and rowdy attitude and brought it to stages all over San Francisco. With the addition of members Philip Brezina (fiddle) and Ryan Avellone (mandolin) the string quintet brings their original string music and the feel of an intimate music party to audiences all across the United States.

    This sounds amazing! This is my favorite kind of music, and this setting sounds extremely cool. I would absolutely love to go – I just had a birthday (yesterday!) and this would make a perfect delayed celebration. Thank you!

    I have fibromyalgia and chronic pain.I am currently unemployed and poor. My husband makes $15 and we live in public housing. I am looking for a good job to change our lives, but nothing has happened yet. I have no money to go to the grocery store for us, much less going to a concert. We live in public housing. . Music is the only way I can heal and it creates a healing portal for my illness. I would be so grateful, from my heart, to go to this. THIS WOULD MEAN SO MUCH TO ME. Thanks Pipeline.
