Last weekend I wandered through the royal court at the Georgia Renaissance Festival and happened upon Rivka Levin of Three Quarter Ale fame playing her harp and singing music from her latest album (a copy of which I purchased after the performance). Rivka’s skill at the harp is well known to regulars of the festival as is her beautiful voice and I’m happy to Continue Reading
This summer Lady Prudence announced her intention to launch a new album and it came as no surprise that her Kickstarter goal was essentially doubled. I found a few spare groats under the cage of Sir Rocko, my ground parrot, and promptly dropped them in the post to the Lady’s attention, care of somewhere on dry land. Several months later I received a package containing a signed copy of her new album All’s Faire, a very pleasant handwritten note, and a rather torrid love letter Continue Reading
We have one last surprise for you from this year’s PiratePalooza™ and no, it’s not your hamburger (didn’t you hear? they’re still a little behind in the kitchen). No, our little surprise is an “internet album” of pirate-themed music from some of the very same performers you saw on stage at this year’s PiratePalooza™ on Saturday, September 15th!! Best of all? This album is absolutely free and it’s available NOW. That’s right FREE and NOW. You should know that this album was spearheaded and produced by Dolph Amick (one of those bigwig backers of the band Three Quarter Ale) and it was wholeheartedly supported by the kindhearted performers who lent their talents to the creation of this album.
Just because I love my crew (especially the lassies) I’m giving you four routes to get this album (the creation of which I had nothing to do with, mind you)!! – Click on through to get the details, they’re fantastic and EASY… you’ll be listening to music in SECONDS!!!!
Track 02 of the PiratePalooza Booty Music album finds that nefarious anarchist Joni Minstrel singing a lovely first person narrative of that prankster of the seven seas, Captain Kidd. Sure he killed a few people… okay, a lot of people… but it’s hard work taking things from other people. Shouldn’t there be some sort of allowances made? Yes? No? Regardless, we think you’ll find that little trouble-maker Joni Minstrel possesses a sweet voice… exactly why you should never turn your back on herrrr! Methinks I smells mutiny afoot…
In Track 03 of the PiratePalooza Booty Music album Susan Hickey and Gregg Csikos of the Rambling Sailors grab you round the collar and fling you high to the world of free-booted pirates in this song called “Pirate’s Life”. Look around your sad little cubicle and feel the blood course hot through your veins… take the sea now lads, while there’s still time!
