7 Walkers, the revered band featuring legendary drummer and Grateful Dead co-founder Bill Kreutzmann, guitarist Papa Mali, multi-instrumentalist Matt Hubbard (Willie Nelson, Fastball) and legendary New Orleans bass man George Porter Jr. (The Meters, Funky Meters) today announce a run of fall tour dates that bring them to U.S. points south and west. Included along the tour is a special stop in the hometown of New Orleans, where very special local guest musicians are expected to sit in with the band. With George Porter Jr. also on a reunion tour with The Meters this fall, look for 7 Walkers Fall Tour to alternate bass players between shows, with select performances to feature Dirty Dozen Brass Band founder and sousaphone player Kirk Joseph Jr., and Tea Leaf Green’s bassist Reed Mathis (who also appears on the 7 Walkers’ album).

Co-written by Papa Mali, 7 Walkers, and longtime Grateful Dead lyricist Robert Hunter, the band’s 2010 self-titled debut earned high praise from critics and fans alike. No Depression called it “The best album by any member of the Grateful Dead since American Beauty.” Blurt Online raved “both assertive and alluring,” while Daily News proclaimed: “as tasty as any dish ever served up by Kreutzmann’s higher-profile collaborators.”
