The other video I want to share from this year’s Pennsic concert is “The Seed”. This is the only video I have performing this piece. Enjoy.
The video from this year’s Pennsic concert had some issues. The camera ran out of storage, so we only recorded a few songs, and the angle doesn’t pick up part of the stage. Nevertheless, I can share some of the experience of getting to perform “Tam Lin of the Elves” with Heather, which was a highlight for me:
If you’re at Pennsic and happen to read this before next Sunday, note that the performer listings in the printed site book have numerous errors, despite Lorelei’s best efforts. All other sources (online, kingdom publications, the Independent) are correct to the best of our knowledge.
My concert is going to be Sunday 6 to 7, but is listed in the book as 6:30 to 7, so people going from the book will miss the first half.
For those who wanted to be at the release concert but couldn’t, we were able to take video. Sadly, the camera only picked up the first half of the concert, but at least we can share that part…
So I want to take a few minutes today to get down my recollections from the release concert Saturday night, before it fades. I’ll be sharing pictures and video probably later in the week for those who couldn’t be there…but I want to take a breath and step back and let my work be out there for people to enjoy if they wish, and get out of the way.
Last night was amazing. We had some
twenty thirty people in the house for the release party for Hidden Gold, and I got to perform the album in its entirety with a backing band. More thoughts, and photos and video, will follow. Initial sales of the album, at the event and online, are promising.
For now, I’m going to wish you all a happy Father’s Day, and spend some time with my family as well as my chosen family. I feel like a piece of metal that spent hours in the forge. It’s not a bad thing, but I am super tired. I wish everyone a happy Father’s Day, and enjoy the rest of your weekend.
A reminder, for anyone following this, that there will be a release party and concert at our house in Paramus, NJ Saturday night, June 20, starting at 7 pm to celebrate the release. We’ll have CD’s for sale, and I’ll be performing the album all the way through with a live band one time only! I’m very excited that my teacher, Mistress Zsof, is coming all the way out from the Midrealm to be part of this. (She will be singing with me!)
If you plan to come, we can give you the address. Contact me via email at firstname.lastname@example.org, or if you’re on Facebook or G+, you can indicate you’re interested in the event:
We’d love to see you there if you’re available.
