“Across the Pond” Fan Fundraiser

Our fundraiser ended at 4PM on Valentines Day, Feb. 14. Thanks to our fans, we raised over $2500 to make this album!

PROJECT UPDATE 
Fourteen tracks have been recorded, with our brilliant engineer Ryan Davidson on the knobs, and we are making some final tweaks before sending them off to Germany for mixing and mastering. We’ve recorded Irish reels and jigs and waltzes, American songs, old time and Quebecois and Acadian fiddle tunes, played on fiddles, guitar, banjo, bouzouki, and mandola.

In early January, John and Stu packed up their fiddles, guitars, banjo, bouzouki, and mandola and migrated northward to the rugged Pacific coast near Fort Bragg, California to make this record. There in the misty gloom of towering redwoods and pounding surf we did temporarily shed the hustle and bustle of our modern lives and for one precious week, focused on our deep love for traditional music.

We enlisted the help of engineer and ethnomusicologist Ryan Davidson, who helped produce Stu’s TRADITION record, to capture the music. We plan to send rough mixes to Juergen Treys (of Cara, Litha) in Germany for mixing and mastering. Juergen is the studio wizard who mixed and mastered the recent album LIFT from Molly’s Revenge.

Thank you for your support of traditional music!

The Return of Winterdance!

PRESS RELEASE

Who: Molly’s Revenge with Christa Burch and Irish Dancers
What: Winterdance: 11th Annual Celtic Christmas Celebration
When: December 2015
Where: California, Oregon, and Washington

Molly’s Revenge and special guest vocalist Christa Burch with Irish dancers will present an evening of music, song and dance associated with the festive season. The performance will include Christmas songs both old and new, all played with a Celtic twist, and something new for our regulars.

Molly’s Revenge, whose lineup includes bagpipes, fiddle, whistle, guitar, mandola, and bodhran, have toured extensively in the USA as well as Australia, China and Scotland.  The band is known for its unique and infectious on-stage enthusiasm. Their arrangements of traditional jigs and reels bring these dance tunes up to date with a driving, hard-edged accent that always leaves audiences shouting for more.

The California-based group has toured since 2000 as a multi-instrumental acoustic band, releasing twelve CDs along the way. In 2014, Molly’s Revenge and Christa Burch recorded a collection of Celtic Christmas and winter-themed music at a remote windswept retreat in the redwoods of the Mendocino coast. This beautiful holiday album will be available at the shows.

Guest vocalist Christa Burch possesses a singular voice: warm, supple, expressive, intimate, and instantly recognizable. Part of a vibrant new generation of American folk singers, Christa deftly marries intuitive musicianship and storytelling through song. To balance the gentle beauty of Christa’s songs, the Irish dancers will bring a percussive, joyful, and colorful exuberance to the stage.

As always, this 11th Annual Celtic Christmas Celebration will capture the traditional spirit of the season and warm the hearts of all who attend.
