Halie Loren’s tour adventures will be bringing her (along with her band) to very different corners of the globe within the next few weeks, including her first-ever performance in the American Southwest and a return to her favorite Japan tour spots!

On Saturday, January 17, Loren performs at Tempe, Arizona’s Lakeshore Music series along with her band and featured guest musician Sergei Teleshev, world-renowned accordionist. It is a rare treat to see this musical combo in action!
