Mournful Seattle folkie Damien Jurado is on a different sort of tour for a different sort of record. Typically stripped-down and stoic, Jurado employed producer Richard Swift to transform his new "Saint Bartlett" into a lush, swooning set, and he's bringing along an eight-piece band to recreate the splendor.

Mournful Seattle folkie Damien Jurado is on a different sort of tour for a different sort of record. Typically stripped-down and stoic, Jurado employed producer Richard Swift to transform his new "Saint Bartlett" into a lush, swooning set, and he's bringing along an eight-piece band to recreate the splendor.

The Columbus show has an even more unusual wrinkle. It will feature local indie rock veteran Joel Walter (Early Empire, The Handshake), who recorded an LP under Jurado's supervision last month.

Walter is a big fan of Jurado's - "My wife and I, we've been to enough shows that he recognizes us," Walter said.

So when the Walters attended a hometown Jurado concert during a backpacking trip out West last year, Jurado and his wife invited them to brunch. Collaboration plans hatched.

Six months later, Walter drove a car full of gear to Seattle and spent 11 days recording at VU Studio with Jurado and Kory Kruckenberg - Walter's dream come true.

The album's still in mixing, but its songs will pepper Walter's set Monday. Kay Kay and His Weathered Underground will perform too.
