The rumors are true, after a short hiatus from touring Ani DiFranco is easing back onto the road with select festival and theater dates. This year, the touring will be a little different, with Ani focusing on smaller, more intimate venues in general. April finds the Little Folksinger at the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival on Friday the 28, after shows in Columbia, MO; Nashville, TN; and Atlanta, GA. Last June Ani announced she would be taking a break from touring after 15 continuous years of performing. She’s not likely to revert back to her previous schedule of over 100 gigs a year, so be sure to catch her while you can. Click here for tour dates and ticketing information.
