Texas Music International (TexMI) reports, January 1, “New Years Day, Bob Livingston and son, Tucker, are to take their brand of multi-cultural folk and rock to Viet Nam and Thailand for a 20 day tour.”
January 4, the duo are to play Ho Chi Minh City’s HCMC Youth Culture House before bopping on to Vung Tau, Ha Noi, Thai Nguyen and Quang Ninh.
The Livingstons also plan to conduct monster music mashing classes for students of the Ho Chi Minh City and Ha Noi Conservatories of Music.
The father and son duo has toured the US extensively and performed in Asia, Africa and the Middle East.
A founding member of Texas’ acclaimed Lost Gonzo Band – a cunning tribute to the inimitable godfather of Gonzo journalism, Hunter S Thompson, – Bob Livingstone’s solo album, 2004’s Mahatma Gandhi & Sitting Bull, was chosen as one of the year’s top ten albums by the Austin-American Statesman, a widely respected US daily.
Singer-songwriter Tucker Livingstone has been featured artist at the Austin City Limits Music Festival, the Kerrville Folk Festival and on Voice of America.
