CAM and 88.1 KDHX welcome Gruff Rhys for his second investigative concert tour in the United States. The first tour featured Gruff winding his way around South America in a search for his long lost, guitar-playing, poncho-wearing uncle, Rene Griffiths, which was documented by Dylan Goch in their 2010 feature film Separado! In August 2012, Gruff – known around the world for his work with Super Furry Animals and Neon Neon, as well as his collaborations with Gorillaz, Dangermouse, Sparklehorse and Simian Mobile Disco – will be seeking out the final resting place of his relative John Evans, who left Wales in 1792 on a quest to find a mythical tribe of Welsh speaking Native Americans. Gruff will follow the path of John Evans using film, the written word, photo-story, social media, and song to create an investigative road movie and album.
