Folk vagabond Passenger announces Australian tour in 2016 and releases new track Lanterns

British folk troubadour Passenger, aka Mike Rosenberg, is no stranger to Aussie shores, so it’s little surprise that he has announced yet another tour in Oz, hitting up the capital cities on a run of all ages theatre gigs in 2016.

The announcement follows a touching post on Facebook made by the solo songwriter regarding the tragic events around the world last Friday, alongside a brand new track Lanterns:

“In light of the recent heartbreaking events in paris , beirut and other areas of the world , i’d like to dedicate this song to anyone that has been directly or in fact indirectly affected by it all . it feels like a strange time at the moment . a time where it is perhaps easy to forget the good in people and the beauty that we create as human beings and to focus only on the tragic and terrible things that we do to each other and the environment . i don’t want to make a big statement here , only to offer this song in the hope that by putting something simple and positive out in to the world that it might help in some small way. thanks so much for taking the time to read this and hope you enjoy the song.”
