Raul Midón Lines Up Worldwide Tour

Share

There are actually two SXSW plays – Scratch House on March 16 and Stephen F. Austin Hotel on March 18. After that Midón has a few headline dates on the East Coast, and an appearance at Singapore International Jazz Festival on April 2. While he is in the Eastern Hemisphere he also plays three nights in Tokyo April 4-6 at Blue Note Tokyo.

The rest of his plan is mostly North America in April and Europe in May. The last date currently on the books is May 22 in Amsterdam.

Midón is blind, which would lead many to draw comparisons with Stevie Wonder, Jose Feliciano and Ray Charles. His jazz stylings and unique use of his voice as an instrument will also resonate with fans of Bobby McFerrin. Midón has been known to perform as a one-man band, playing drums, guitars and singing simultaneously during the live shows.

The next Raul Midón album, Bad Ass And Blind, drops next week on March 24. Midón wrote, recorded, played on, produced and engineered the album. Check out his cover of “Fly Like An Eagle” off that project:

About the album, Midón said: “Believe it or not I am a shy person especially when it comes to my blindness. This album, in general … represents a sea change for me when it comes to communicating with the public about my disability.”
