Pam Tillis will embark on her first tour of Ireland and the United Kingdom in April. The 14-city tour will begin April 11 in Coleraine, Ireland, and conclude April 29 in Aberdare, UK, and includes a national performance on BBC Radio. “I’ve looked forward to this tour for such a long, long time. I’m happy to learn there’s an awareness and interest in my music in Ireland and the United Kingdom,” Tillis said. “Everyone I know that has had the chance to tour there came back totally smitten with the people and the landscape. It’s also a personal pilgrimage for me as I have Scotch Irish ancestry and feel very drawn to the music. Quite simply, I just can’t wait!” Tillis is currently working on a new project that is expected later this year.
