Over the last couple years, Ray LaMontagne has been staging Just Passing Through tour, an acoustic run where the songwriter has been performing stripped-down sets that have gotten rave reviews: “His face was barely visible, shadowed under his newsie cap and a bright white light that shone down to a dark stage,” one read. “From the moment LaMontagne began to sing until his very last note, the audience was held captive by his voice.”

Today, the songwriter announced 30 more dates, beginning October 11th at Providence’ Rhode Island’s Providence Performance Arts Center.

LaMontagne won’t be entirely by himself onstage: My Morning Jacket guitarist Carl Broemel will accompany him. Kacy & Clayton, a Canadian folk duo, will open. Their new album Carrying On, produced by Jeff Tweedy, is out October 4th.

LaMontagne has been highly productive in the last few years. Last year, he released his most recent album, Part of the Light. Other recent releases included 2016’s Ouroboros, produced by Jim James, and 2014’s Supernova, produced by Dan Auerbach. It’s all been part of a creative journey that LaMontagne says is entirely for himself: “I’ve never cared what people’s perceptions of me are,” he’s told RS, “and I really don’t give a flying fuck.”
