Medieval Folk Fest in Tampere 25th to 26th July 2015

We have the joy and honour to arrange for the fourth time already a musical market festivity Medieval Folk Fest at the Tampere Stable Yards. We have met so many a great band of musicians on our travels that we could not fit them all on one day any more, so this year the Fest goes on for the whole weekend.

Some of the performers are already known from previous years such as Räikkä, Härkätien leikarit and Muskotti, as well as the dancers of Saltatores Tavastenses, and even the Aeldwine’s bearder boys look quite familiar. New acquitances include Misty Clan, O’Rives, as well as the magical show of the Mystic Alexander XIII and the Conjurer Samu Kuusisto.

The festivities all happen among a small medieval market complete with cloth, leather, metal and incense sellers, not to forget Stable Yard’s own shops and temptations.

Free entry. You are most Welcome!

Pärnu Hanseatic Days 2015

Next up in the calendar are the Pärnu Hanseatic Days in Estonia on 26th to 28th June. It is really exciting to see how faires are celebrated there across the seas. (We will also find out if our trusty touring wagon floats or not.)

The hanseatic days hold a medieval market as well as dancing, tournament, theater, fire show, and foreign musicians from at least Germany, Sweden, Latvia, Russia and Belarus. Truly a market to gather people from far and wide then!

Greenrose Faire plays on Saturday at 14 o’clock and 19 o’clock, and on Sunday at 13 o’clock on the Medieval Stage. We will also raise our own tent somewhere and jam a bit, so go ahead and look us up if you are around! See you there!

Big thanks to the people of Pärnu and the market organisers! The fair at the summer capital of Estonia was wonderful, topped with fine weather and lots marketgoers. The rumour has it we’ll come again next year?

Welcome Jari

Jari
This spring we are joined by Jari Tiittanen on the bass. He has already accumulated a fair amount of miles on a touring wagon in his previous projects, so he probably know what he’s getting into here… Congratulations are in order anyway!

For this summer’s campaign there have been some other changes of seats. The original member Jupe steps aside with honours, leaving Niilo to take charge of mandolin-related work. The new album already features some songs with this brand-new line-up.

Welcome to the shows to see for yourself!

Feed the Flames – studio tidings

The recordings of the new musical round flat thingy are well over halfway, and we have reached the part where we start recording lead vocals. They sure make the songs spring into life.:

Update: the pre-order campaign is now over, but we will still update the campaign pages until the album release at http://igg.me/at/feed-the-flames/

Pps. The first snow of the winter just fell last night here in Tampere.

Feed the Flames pre-order

Feed the Flames

Greenrose Faire’s third album will be called “Feed the Flames” and is to be released for Summer 2015. Hurrah for that!

Now that the most difficult part of this quest is over (i.e. the deciding on the name), we will try a cozy little pre-order campaign through IndieGoGo crowdfunding thingie: http://igg.me/at/feed-the-flames/

Fear not, we will finish the album on time without one extra penny. We already have a pretty good idea of how long it takes and where to “find” the money for it. But there are many chores that we could either do ourselves, or pay for a professional to do them better. This pre-order money will be spent on such extra finish, and the more the better!

The campaign page lists several pre-order packages ranging from mundane to kingly. There are your basic digital downloads, T-shirts and CDs with or without band autographs. But there’s also the chance to appear on the cover in the artwork created by our court painter Vablo.

Next weekend is still fun and games at Kemiö island medieval market, but after that it’s all toil and trouble with the album recording…

Update: we’ve dropped a couple of updates on the campaign page, and will continue to do so until the album is ready
