Fresh off a visit Down Under that brought the ‘Dig In Deep’ Tour to New Zealand and Australia, including a stop at the famed Byron Bay Bluesfest, 10-time Grammy Award winner Bonnie Raitt has announced a late summer run of shows in the U.S.  Returning to familiar territory (Bayfield, WI and Santa Fe, NM) and revisiting parts of the Northern Plains and Mountain States, including a headlining slot at the Telluride Blues & Brews Festival and a benefit for Honor the Earth in Moorhead, MN. Raitt will be joined by her longtime touring band: James "Hutch" Hutchinson (bass), Ricky Fataar (drums), and George Marinelli (guitar), along with Mike Finnigan (keyboards). Special Guest Anders Osborne will support most dates. 

In February 2016, Raitt released her most recent album 'Dig In Deep' on her independent label, Redwing Records. It has since sold over 160,000 units worldwide, debuting in the top #10 Billboard Album Sales, Blues Album, Americana/Folk Album, Digital Album Sales, Internet Album and Independent Album charts and was still on the top #200 Sales Chart 26 weeks after release. The album charted at #35 on the UK Top 40 Album chart, #1 UK Americana Album Chart and #7 UK Independent Album Chart with the UK and Germany both reporting ‘Dig In Deep’ as Bonnie's best-selling album since 1994’s 'Longing In Their Hearts.'
