We are Friendly Folk

We have signed some formal parchments with Friendly Folk Records! Our common journey starts rolling in the coming summer with the release of a new single as well as the 10th anniversary collection album.

More information about the releases and the summer tour is coming soon!

Anniversary

10000

Greenrose Faire was founded in fall 2007, so we hereby declare the year of 2017 to be our 10th anniversary year.

There are some exciting new things coming up this year, as well as a good excuse to dig through the archives for some previously unseen and unheard gems. Of course there will be a 10th anniversary concert in November.

Here’s the first piece of history, the very first take from the very first Greenrose Faire demo recording session, “let’s try this…”:

Going North

Cold winds are blowing already, and it’s getting cooler still when in a couple of weeks we head North to Rovaniemi. The Friday Nov 18th show at Muurola primary school will be both our northernmost and earliest (9:15! AM!) gig ever. The day continues at the junior high school of the Arctic Circle, and the evening program included at least in Narrow Neck’s gig in Hemingway’s.

On Saturday, the festivities at Hemingway’s continue first with an acoustic Irish session starting around six o’clock (hup!). When the clock strikes ten, it’s are our turn to take the place over and loose some broadsides of magical and engaging folk rock.

Saturday 19.11.
Hemingway’s Rovaniemi (Koskikatu 11)
Irish Session from 18:00
Showtime 22:00

Free admission, welcome!


Update 20.11. Huge thanks to the people at Muurola and Arctic Circle schools, the magnificent audience and a the staff Hemingway, our generous host Narrow Neck, and of course Santa Claus. After Friday’s show, incidentally, we calculated that it was the band’s 9th birthday. The weekend was unforgettable, and we certainly hope to return again!

Live video from Hämeenlinna

Another amazing summer is over! Here’s a clip from summer’s last outdoor gig at Hämeenlinna, the atmosphere in the evening festivities was through the roof again, thanks everyone!
