LEYLA MCCALLA ANNOUNCES NORTHEAST TOUR, ETOWN TAPING AS PRE-RELEASE UK, US PLAUDITS ADD UP

"UNFORGETTABLE… TRIUMPH" (THE SUNDAY TIMES, UK) 'VARI-COLORED SONGS: A TRIBUTE TO LANGSTON HUGHES' OUT FEB 4 ON MUSIC MAKER RELIEF FOUNDATION

Leyla McCalla – whose solo tribute to Langston Hughes comes out February 4, three days after his birthday – will tour the northeast United States in January and February. The announcement, which includes three stops in NYC, the first during APAP, comes on the heels of incredible reviews in the UK and US and an opening slot for Mavis Staples. In February, she will tape syndicated national radio show eTown, located in Boulder, CO.

The Sunday Times called it an "unforgettable… triumph."

The UK's R2 gave it four stars, calling it "a labour of love, beautifully consummated."

UNCUT gave it an 8/10, heralding its "magic."

New Orleans' Offbeat Magazine tabbed it "ambitious, deep and gorgeous."

The Wall Street Journal premiered a track as well.
