Riders in the Night (2018)


(2018, FFR18006) Greenrose Faire’s fourth studio album “Riders in the Night” will be out worldwide on 1st June 2018 via Friendly Folk Records. The band’s unique style and sound crosses over genre borders with an appeal to music lovers of all ages.

The album starts with the slightly ominous Shadows in the Night, leading on a voyage of upbeat ditties, larger-than-life melodic ballads, and strumming by campfire. Eventually we arrive at the mercilessly galloping title track of the album, and end up having just one more at the tavern, trying to push back the inevitably approaching morning.

vocals: Salla Rimmi
violin: Hanna Heinonen
bouzouki: Niilo Sirola
keyboards: Petri Hannuksela
bass: Mikko Kaipainen
drums: Tomi Hyttinen

Lending some extra epicness to the album is Professor Roland “Uncle Roly” Rotherham, reading the introduction to one of the more legendary pieces, Eagles Fly Free.

The album was released on 1.6.2018 and can be ordered e.g. from the band’s own Shoppe.
