We’ve just spent a lovely week in Montalcino recording our EP. All six tracks are recorded. There are new compositions from each of us as well as a couple of sets of trad tunes Of course we also found the time to enjoy the local Tuscan food and wine and the company of various friends and family passing through Terralsole.
The picture is a view from our recording studio, just after a storm. The tune we were working on at the time was one of Athena’s compositions titled Temporali, which means ‘thunderstorm’ in Italian. Coincidence?
We’re now busy with the editing and mixing. Stay tuned for sneak peeks and official release information.
We’ve joined the ranks of Twitter, there’s lots of good chatting about music happening there. Here’s our page of tweets. You are welcome to follow us, we’ll follow back.
This spring and summer we will be working on composing, recording and making a new video or two. We’re looking forward to sharing our work and music with you wherever you are; here, on our mailing list, or at any of the usual social media hangouts.
If you are in the New York area over the next couple of weeks be sure to take in An Irish Christmas at the Irish Arts Center. Mick Moloney’s show features Athena on fiddle and a host of special guests. They also have a CD, An Irish Christmas: Live from the Irish Arts Center.
We have more news on the way and in the meanwhile we wish you all a very happy holiday season.
Athena is just back from Nashville where she was with Greenfields of America, headlining the National Folk Festival. Here’s a news clip about the festival that features the band.
We’ve had a delightful few days of rehearsal at the Terralsole Vineyards getting ready for our own gig in Copenhagen at Admiral Gjeddes Gaard on Sept. 20. If you’re planning to come please send an RSVP via the Facebook event page or send an email to “admiral at gjeddegaard.dk“.
