About the Cactus Cafe
Many moons ago,
the Cactus Cafe was our refuge from the rain when we performed on the South Mall at U.T.. It's still a great venue and
the best place in Austin to go to listen to great Celtic music. All
the great Celtic artists perform there from Clandestine to Ed
Miller, Danu to Eric Bogle. Now it's our turn!
Jul 15, 2003. On July 15th, we'll be release our sixth studio album, Memories of Middle Earth in one of the biggest events this summer. If you want to catch any of our shows this summer, this is it! We will be performing music from the CD, plus many of our most-popular songs, plus a few exclusive Tolkien songs that have never before been played in public!Tell your family and friends to come out and see us in this exclusive performance. If ye'd like to help promote the event, head over to our forum to find out how.
