RENAISSANCE FAYRE tribute band update
Just a bit of a Renaissance Fayre update, we have been doing the wandering minstrel bit and promoting Blackmore's Night material around the unsuspecting Folk Clubs in the Cambridge area on their open stage nights and it has been going down very well!!
People at the folk clubs like the Blackmore's Night songs and love to join in, and how apt it all is, as historically this is the way music was promoted way back when!!!
Our bass player got the flesh eating bug just before Christmas and nearly died, but we are pleased to say that he's well on the mend and back playing with us!!
We've just opened up a Myspace site and there is plenty of music to listen to from a Modern and Ancient set; alright it's not all purely Blackmore's Night, but bookings from the songs that folk know allow us to expose the audience to BN stuff, its devilishly clever what!!
I even gave a CD copy to the Mediaeval Baebes when we saw them at Ely Cathedral in December; probably ended up in a collection plate (or some other ecclesiastical bin) somewhere but hey we try!!
We are regularly appearing at the Acoustic Cafe at the Hardwicke Arms in Arrington in South Cambridgeshire every other Thursday:
