Published Jun 18, 2014Self-branded "Balkan-klezmer-gypsy-party-punk super band" Lemon Bucket Orkestra entered the Ukrainian crisis this spring with their Lemonchiki Project, but now they are turning their attention back on Canada for a lengthy summer tour.
The outing will run throughout the whole summer, starting in the second half of June and stretching until early September. The tour is structured around festival stops, which are interspersed with various other dates. The group will be heading as far west as Vancouver Island and as far east as the Maritimes.
See the schedule below. Note that it includes a hometown send-off show at Lee's Palace in Toronto on June 26.
"Toronto has been so good to us, and we couldn't ask for a better home," said the band's Mark Marczyk in a statement. "Without the support of the Toronto community, we would never be able to share the music with the rest of the country."
