2018 was quite the year for New York Roots Rockers, Lara Hope & The Ark-Tones. They spent the second half of 2018 on tours supporting some of their musical heroes, The Reverend Horton Heat, The Blasters, and most recently the Brian Setzer Orchestra, on their 15th Anniversary Christmas Rocks Tour.

Based around Woodstock, NY, Hope and the band don’t find themselves home too much these days. Since winning Dale Watson’s 2017 Ameripolitan Music Award for Best Female Rockabilly Artist, they’ve been staying quite busy, and are happy to do so. They will be spending April 2019 crossing the country, returning to some of their recent stops for a follow-up, and hitting some new markets, including a week in California (alongside Swiss Rockabilly icons The Hillbilly Moon Explosion, and SOCAL heroes The Delta Bombers). The anchor event for this tour is the Viva Las Vegas Rockabilly Weekender, now in it’s 22nd year, hailing as one of the biggest Rockabilly events in the world. Full tour schedule is as follows:
