Critics raved about LaMontagne’s last acoustic tour. “Hearing Ray LaMontagne perform
live is a poignant and magical experience,” said online music publication

Boston Herald added, “LaMontagne’s voice remains a marvel, quiet and reflective
one minute and forceful and impassioned the next. It really is an amazing instrument.”
Five of LaMontagne’s albums reached the Top 10 on

Don’t Rise” earned a Grammy Award for Best Folk Album and yielded the single “Beg
