It has been a very busy year for our band, and we spent the best part of the summer locked away in our dungeon studios to bring forth our latest cd, Verdant. This cd features a wide diversity of songs, exploring musical territory from Steampunk inspired epics (Her Majesty’s Airship Corps, Clockwork Love) to folk rock (Castaway, Mixdown) to Celtic ballads (Shepherdess of Dreams, Empty Island), each song telling a unique story. There are also lively dance instrumentals (Salamanca/Sailor’s Bonnet, The Peat That Smokes the Barley), and unusual song inspired by Tielhard the Monk’s philosophy (Omega), and a LIVE version of the band’s well know goddess anthem “Freya, Shakti”.
“But guys, where can I get this cd?” Well, folks, we are going to send you in the right direction to have a listen and download this new music! You can always get our music at our live gigs, but to hear cuts from Verdant and buy it online, just click over to one of these links:

Scottish Songwriter Jim Malcolm in Concert with special guest Brian Sullivan!
November 15th Holly Theater (Downstairs)
69 West Main Street
Dahlonega, Georgia 30533 8 pm $15 “Jazz Pub” Environment, drinks and snacks available!
Brian “Logan” Sullivan will open for Celtic master musician Jim Malcolm at the Holly Theater in Dahlonega! Jim was the lead singer for Scottish supergroup Old Blind Dogs for many years, and has been a master level instructor at the Swannanoa school for Celtic music. That’s where he ran into your friend Logan, who was mighty impressed by Jim’s rich baritone voice, phenomenal guitar playing and the ability to play bagpipe tunes on a harmonica (while playing guitar). Learning of Malcolm’s soft spot for fishing the lochs and lakes of the world, it wasn’t long until Logan had convinced him to come to Starbridge and the two became fast friends, sharing a passion for big fish, fine whiskey and Celtic music. Logan has opened the show for Jim several times before, but this year the two may actually play some songs together! Jim Malcolm is touring the US in support of his new cd ‘Sparkling Flash’. Check out his music at www.jimmalcolm.com ! For tickets, call the Holly Theater Box Office, and ask to be put on the list for Jim Malcolm. Only 70 seats available, so give them a call at 706 864-3759 to reserve a space. Tickets will be purchased at the Box Office on the night of the show.
