Tour Alert: Beast Friends Forever: Lucas Carpenter, Mark Rose, Jon Walker

Lucas Carpenter, Mark Rose and Jon Walker are headed out on the road together once again. This time around they’ll be playing it songwriters circle style, i.e. rotating through songs and accompanying each other. And if you think the tour poster is as adorable as I do, you can snag yourself one at the shows.

As enticement and introduction, some videos. First up is Lucas Carpenter:

Next is Mark Rose (Spitalfield):
