British Virgin Islands tour with John Blood, supporting John Legend and UB40

Smoke Feathers will be heading out to the beautiful British Virgin Islands at the end of November with our good friend John Blood for a very special mini-tour, including a prime time slot supporting U.S. soul star John Legend and UB40's Ali Campbell at the 50th anniversary celebrations of the BVI National Parks Trust. We are going to be playing a variety of stripped-back acoustic and full band gigs across the islands between November 19th and November 27th, with charity fundraisers for Sailability and the BVI Special Olympics team and guest spots at some of the best venues in the territories including Leverick Bay Resort and Marina and Captain Mulligan's. The tour builds up to an all-day Smoke Feathers beach party at Big D's in the top surfers' resort of Josiah's Bay on November 27th. Here's the agenda:

19 Nov - Captain Mulligan's, Tortola
20 Nov - BVI Special Olympics Fundraiser, Fat Virgin Cafe, Virgin Gorda 
20 Nov - Leverick Bay Resort and Marina, Virgin Gorda
23 Nov - Sailability Fundraiser, The Boat House, Tortola
26 Nov - w/John Legend & Ali Campbell, National Parks Trust Concert
27 Nov - Smoke Feathers On The Beach, Big D's, Josiah's Bay, Tortola

With Stu away playing bass for Dodgy on their UK tour, the mightily talented singer-songwriter John Blood has kindly stepped in to fill his shoes for the BVI trip. Alongside material from our forthcoming debut album Liberation and a load of other Feathers favourites, we have managed to persuade John to play some of his finest works in a first of its kind Feathers-Blood mash-up. A camera crew and photographer will be following us around out there to record our adventures, so stay tuned for updates.
