Tori will be touring in 2014 to support the release of Unrepentant Geraldines. The European legs runs from May through June and the North American legs spans July and August. We do not know if additional dates elsewhere will be added.
The Worcester Telegram & Gazette’s Craig S. Semon has kind things to say about Midwinter Graces in his overview of 2009 holiday albums. The couple paragraphs of the article that address the album, which interestingly fail to mention Tori’s rewriting of traditional carols and focus on the original songs, are reproduced below:
Leave it to Tori Amos to come up with a holiday album that transcends the season with “Midwinter Graces (3 stars).
The Methodist minister’s daughter-turned-ivory-tickling chanteuse is spellbinding on the elegant and intimate traditional hymns, including “What Child, Nowell” and “Silent Night, Holy Night” but it is on her originals that she truly shines. On the ’40s-style, big band romp, “Pink and Glitter,” Amos celebrates all the little girls born during the Christmas season because all the attention seems to be bestowed on a little boy born in a manger in Jerusalem.
While Christmas can be the most wonderful time of the year, Amos knows it can also be the loneliness and most painful. Amos looks for romantic reconciliation on the somber piano ballad, “A Silent Night with You,” the earthy and organic pagan opus, “Winter’s Carol” and tempestuously orchestrated, “Our New Year.”
