Welcome 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

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:

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

Welcome Hanna!

We are privileged to announce that Hanna Heinonen has joined us on the violin. The first show with this gang is already coming up at the medieval market at Kemiö island on Sept 13th. See you there!

As an interesting aside, once upon a time when the band was very young, we went to see a friend’s band who had such an awesome violinist that we decided right away that we need to have a violin player too. The band was Lemuria and the violin player on the stage was none other than Hanna, which goes to show how things sometimes work out just fine.

Market greetings

What a weekend at Häme Medieval Fair! Four great gigs, thanks to the incredible audiences! Thanks also to the other musicians, the lovely saleswomen at our booth (and let’s not forget Räikkä’s human pyramid either), to the sound and light wizards, and especially to the organizers for once again delivering this grand faire!

For all the wonderful atmosphere, there was also bit of sadness in the air as Sunday was Anni’s final show with us (for the time being at least). We would like here to thank Ann for these amazing gigs and an incredible year and a half past! Fare thee well in the future!

Also some other well-kept secrets may have slipped during the market, but let’s discuss those in detail these coming weeks.

Our next destinateion is the isle of Kemiö where a medieval market is held on Saturday 13th September, where we will play two shows with our new mystery member. If you find yourself nearby, the be welcome to Keskiaikaiset saaristolaismarkkinat!
