My Darling Clementine – On the road again / new MWK solo album

25 Mar, 2022

Hi friends,

Well, Spring is here. The sun is out (for now) and the open road beckons for us.

The recent UK and Euro shows have been a joy and we are ready for more.

Thanks to all who have come to see us so far this year, in England, and across Germany, Holland and France. We know these are still uncertain times and we do greatly value you coming out.

A few pictures from the recent shows;

Next up, it is the north of England this weekend, and then America in April, followed by more UK shows in April and May and then back to Europe.

All the upcoming tour dates , with ticket links can be found here.

As ever, if you can, please book in advance.


A few words now about Michael’s new solo album, THE STRUGGLE

It is his first solo album in 10 years and has already had been picking up some amazing reviews.

This Thursday, March 24th, there will be an intimate launch show in Liverpool.
A few tickets are still available here.

Watch, and also read an interview with Michael about the song and the album at Americana-UK.

The wonderful video was made by David M Dalglish.

The Struggle is released April 1 on Cherry Red Records. Pre-order here or via Amazon.


Also via CHERRY RED RECORDS, Michael’s former band The Good Sons have their 4 studio albums (from 1995 – 2001) released onto streaming services for the first time.

So, if you wish to hear what MWK was doing BL (before Lou), here is the Spotify link.You can also read more via the All Music site.


Any new music from My Darling Clementine you maybe asking?

Well, not yet, the next few months will be all about playing live and sharing the Country Darkness songs which we have worked so hard on.

But, writing is forever on-going, and we hope to be back in the studio sometime in the summer to start work on the next, original MDC album.

We will leave you with a recap of the upcoming tour dates, and we look forwards to seeing you at a show in the very near future.

As ever, thanks for your support,
L & M


Updated MDC Tour Schedule

14 Feb, 2022

So the vagaries of playing live continue unabated it seems. Here is an update of our touring schedule for the next 3 months.

 

Good news is we have some new additions. Not so good news, we have some re-arranged shows and a postponement (with the new date still TBC)

So sincere apologies to friends in Sheffield. We were looking forward to coming back to what has become second home for us. But The Greystones show will happen. This one, along with Settle Victioria Hall from Feb 4th is being re-scheduled for the Autumn.

On the plus side, new MDC shows just announced in Cambridge, Liverpool and Aberdeen.

Also announced, an intimate MWK solo show, also in Liverpool to launch the new album, The Struggle. Limited numbers available for this.

In Europe, the first 3 German shows of tour have been moved back to May to go alongside a newly announced show in Solothurn in Switzerland.

Friends in America, the east coast tour starts in Rochester, NY now, not Wheeling WV. Our first show in West Virgnina, that too will be for another time.
