I'm proud to announce that I will be playing a Showcase event at CMJ Music Marathon on October 20th in NYC at the livingroom/googies. I will also play a show at Pianos on October 16th. Joel Isaksson and Oskar Nyman are coming along so it will be a an acoustic three piece version of Jerry Lindqvist & The Grace.

Here's the Press Release in Finnish and Swedish...

Countryrockari Jerry Lindqvist lähtee Pohjois-Amerikkaan

Suomalainen countryrockari Jerry Lindqvist lähtee USA:han keikoille lokakuussa. Hän soittaa mm. CMJ Music Marathonilla New Yorkissa 20.10.2011. Tapahtuma on yksi maailman isoimmista showcase festareista ja Lindqvistin ohella festareilla esiintyy monia maailmanluokan huippuartisteja ja -bändejä.

Vaasalainen, sittemmin turkulaistunut Lindqvist on tämän vuoden syyskuussa julkaissut ensimmäisen soolopitkäsoittonsa nimeltään "Rivertown". Syksyllä hän kiertää Pohjois-Amerikan lisäksi myös kotimaassa. 

Countryrockaren Jerry Lindqvist turnerar i USA

Den finlandssvenska countryrockaren Jerry Lindqvist åker till USA på turné i oktober. Under turnén spelar han bland annat på CMJ Music Marathon i New York den 20.10.2011. Festivalen är en av världens största så kallade showcase festivaler och förutom Lindqvist uppträder stora artister från hela världen på flera scener runtom Manhattan.

Lindqvist, ursprungligen från Vasa men numera Åbobo, gav ut sin första soloskiva "Rivertown" i september och turnerar under hösten förutom i USA också inom hemlandets gränser.
