John Wesley Harding (left) @ City Winery NYC in 2011 (more by Chris Graham)

John Wesley Harding (aka Wesley Stace) is gearing up for a September US tour with Strawbs, who will be playing acoustic. That tour begins on September 5 in Vienna, VA and hits Chicago on September 18 for a show at City Winery (who are hosting their first official one tonight (8/15)). Advance tickets are on sale. Stace is somewhat of a regular at City Winery NYC-- with his Cabinet of Wonders variety shows-- so this will mostly likely be his first of many visits to the new Chicago venue.

Stace released his most recent record, The Sound of His Own Voice, in 2011 and gave his 1996 LP, John Wesley Harding's New Deal, its first-ever vinyl release last month via Yep Roc. You can stream The Sound of His Own Voice in its entirety at the bottom of this post.
