We are stoked to announce our exclusive Record Store Day LP, Live Harvest. We closed out the touring for the VII album in Portland with two shows at the Doug Fir Lounge where we performed Neil Young’s Harvest album in its entirety. The shows were recorded and will be released as a limited edition LP on Record Store Day.

To celebrate this release, we will be playing Neil Young’s Harvest in its entirety along with additional faves from our own catalog at the City Winery locations in New York City, Chicago and Nashville. The other shows on the tour will be traditional BT performances with a few select tunes from Harvest sprinkled into the set. A full list of dates can be found here - come out and see us.
