Freedom

This year has been quite an incredible ride and this new video featuring some of the most memorable gigs. Greetings and thanks to both old friends and new acquaintances we made along the way!

Take a look also at Wyldwood Radio, where we are the featured band this week.

You can also hear us (and a lots of banter in Dutch) on the Goed Folk podcast in a couple of installations.

An of course, there are a lot of action and some surprises left for next year as well, so see you there!

Happy first anniversary CeltCast

Today we celebrate the first anniversary of the online community (and) radio station CeltCast.

The station was founded by a couple of guys who fell in love with Celtic and folk music and the scene around it, to “songs to that show us the beauty of nature, that take us back through time or through rough times in the present”, and decided it was time to give something back to the community. Based in The Netherlands, CeltCast plays just 100% Real Music around the clock, without ads or banners or commercials, seemingly fueled by just the power of music.

Not just a radio stream, CeltCast is also about bringing together bands and the listeners of this wonderful type of music, with album reviews and give-aways, festival reports, and anything they can thing of to spread the music to the world.

So greetings from Finland and have a merry one!

And you, what are you still doing here reading a blog post? Give it a listen! At www.celtcast.com! Hup! There is going to be some kind of special broadcast today at 18:00 CET (see their Facebook event)

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.

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!

Album release party at Häme Medieval Fair 2013

What a weekend! The medieval times at Häme Castle are over, and the new album was published and properly celebrated. It seems the record played in quite a many cars on their way home.

Thanks once again to the crowd at all four shows, as well as the friends and strangers who turned up at our stall for a chat or even to do some shopping. Thanks belong also to the “mixed folks” who borrowed their campsite for our video shooting, to the fellow musicians and performers at the fair, and, above all, the event organizers. Great event, hoping to make it again next year.

Next weekend we head towards the Wuosisatamarkkinat at Vihti, see you there!

Saturday 17th November at Oluthuone Pekko, Tampere, with a cosy acoustic set together with out practice roomies Lemuria.

Friday 23rd November the caravan rides again towards Keuruu to Pub Red Bike, where we already visited in the summer.
