Whether it’s singer-songwriter Mike Scott in a solo capacity, Scott and a touring band, or “The Whole of the Moon,” it’s always pure Waterboys.

The critically acclaimed rock/folk/Celtic group, formed by the Scottish-born Scott in 1983, is touring North America for the first time in six years.

“Our fall 2013 tour is the longest Waterboys American tour ever and we’re doing it with an American lineup,” Scott says. “Apart from myself and fiddler Steve Wickham, all the band members are Americans based in the New York area, players I handpicked myself. I can’t wait to see what kind of a joyful, wild noise we’ll make.”
