Andrew Bird's Whistle-Stop Tour
The whistling wizzard and MTV's Spanking New Session star hits the road this week...
Andrew Bird, everybodys favourite songwriter, violinist, guitarist, vocalist and Grade A whistler, is in the middle of a flying visit to the UK date to celebrate the re-release of his mini-epic single Heretics.
Bird recently recorded a solo Spanking New Session for MTV, which you can watch in full here, but on these dates is backed by an amazing band that fleshes out the loops and layers of his various instruments to create a truly unique sound.
Heretics, taken from Birds latest album Armchair Apocrypha, is being re-released in December after being featured in trails for Michael Palins latest BBC travel show.
Bird plays the following dates this week, with support from Swedish perfect pop-er Loney, Dear.
Go see, we guarantee you'll leave whistling...
