Dan Mangan Announces North American Fall Tour Dates With Very Special Guests, The Rural Alberta Advantage As Well As East Coast Canadian Dates in Halifax and St. John’s

 

Double Juno Award Winner From Vancouver Continues To Wow Summer Music Festival Audiences Across Canada & Prepares To Head To Europe In August.

On September 27 2011, Dan Mangan’s third album Oh Fortune came out to widespread critical acclaim. After almost eight straight months of touring North America, Europe & Australia, to capacity filled churches, halls, clubs and theatres, the 2012 JUNO Award winner for Best New Artist & Alternative Album Of The Year, has been on the road again hitting summer festivals in Canada and preparing for a European tour in August. Today, fresh off a mesmerizing headlining show at The Vancouver Folk Music Festival, Dan Mangan announces North American fall tour dates with The Rural Alberta Advantage as well as East Coast dates that include a very special show with Symphony Nova Scotia in Halifax. All tour dates are listed below.

 

Oh Fortune

Oh Fortune

Canadian acoustic troubadour invents post-folk…a great artistic leap…Mangan serves up the welcome alternative” Q Magazine

Packed with grandiose Grizzly Bear harmonies (highlight – ‘Rows of Houses’) and slow-building, orchestral touches (‘How Darwinian’), Oh Fortune spans a wider spectrum than its folky core might imply, adding a grandeur and a refreshing cerebral spin to proceedings.” NME

Oh Fortune is not only going to blow plenty of minds when it hits the streets, it’s going to be remembered as one of the best, most daring records of the year.” The Georgia Straight

Oh Fortune is an excellent record, expansive in scope yet efficiently delivered and both musically and lyrically rich. Oh Fortune confirms Mangan as one of this country’s best new songwriters.” Chromewaves

This is a perspective that strikes, simply, as wise, a fact that is really what separates Mangan from similarly scruffy singer-songwriters, to say nothing of pop musicians in general: Oh Fortune is one of the rare albums that is a kind of education in how to be human in a strange and – as its namesake amply demonstrates – harsh world.“  The National Post — Album Of The Week
