Washington-Based Dream Folk Duo Begins Summer Alaska Tour

 True Reckoning, a singer songwriter duo based in Port Townsend, WA is embarking on their summer 2022 tour of the Interior Alaska and Kenai Peninsula. “One could call ours an unconventional strategy, spending nearly three months touring a single state with less than a million people. But hey, it’s just one state, how big could it be?” Armstrong said with a shrug.

The dream folk duo have spent the spring performing at music venues in Port Townsend and across the Olympic Peninsula. Members Nathan “Tex” Armstrong and Annabel “AB” McSpadden met in the Olympic Peninsula’s grassroots singer-songwriter scene. Their music tour spans mid-June through late August 2022. The program details are as follows:

Fri, June 17 McCarthy, Alaska McCarthy Lodge

Fri-Sat, July 1-2 Delta Junction, Alaska Jammin’ at the Rapids

Fri, July 8 Fairbanks, Alaska Goldie’s

Fri, July 15 Anchorage, Alaska Van’s Dive Bar

Sat-Sun, July 16-17 Palmer, Alaska Pickers Retreat

Thurs, July 21 Homer, Alaska Kharacters

Sat, July 23 Seward, Alaska Zudy’s

Sat, July 30 Homer, Alaska Alice’s Champagne Palace

Fri-Sun, August 5-7 Ninilchik, Alaska Salmon Fest

Fri, August 19 Palmer, Alaska Alaska State Fair

“You know, it really sounded like a great idea when it was just that, an idea. But now we are actually doing this,” McSpadden said enthusiastically, “This tour is pretty absurd. I think odds are 50/50 that (our tour manager / dog) Sunny will become a bear snack. I’ll consider the tour a success if Sunny doesn’t get eaten and we keep our financial losses to a minimum.”

True Reckoning recorded their EP, Better Than Ghosts, at Port Townsend’s Rainshadow Studios in May of this year. Currently being mixed and mastered, Better Than Ghosts is scheduled for release at the end of June 2022. Earlier this spring, the band recorded live performances of their singles “Ded Burd” and “Hearts of Stone” at Bremerton’s Woodwork Tattoo and Gallery, which can be found on their website and social media pages.

“In all seriousness, we are so grateful to the warm welcomes that we received while booking this tour and the support of our friends and family back home. We had a lot of help turning this delusion into a reality,” Armstrong concluded.
