Brobdingnagian Bards Tales

The latest music news, stories, and events of The Original Celtic Renaissance music group, the Brobdingnagian Bards. CELTIC GEEK at its Best! Find out more from the Nagians page.

I made a lot of changes to the site yesterday, including the new homepage. I hope you like it. I was trying to add something that had more of a personal touch. So of course, I also added a picture, which I noticed our site lacks. So voila'. I also updated the Celtic Lyric Directory. It's better organized into genres, and the corresponding stations are attached as well. Now you can look at the lyrics and/or listen to the songs on mp3.com.

Meanwhile, Andrew and I are still putting the finishing touches on the A Faire To Remember CD graphics and text for the insert. We're going to try and get it totally completed by the beginning of next week, so we'll be certain to have it by our release date on September 1st. So far it looks great. Actually, the photo on the homepage is being used as a watermark for the back cover of the CD. It's very cool.

Some Celtic news. A couple new CDs were released (or are about to be) that I wanted to point out. The Rogues have just put out their fifth CD, V.0. I listened to it yesterday, and man, it is fantastic. If you didn't like bagpipes before, you will love them after this CD. It is truly fantastic. I manage their MP3 site and will try to get up a couple MP3s today. Also, Jiggernaut, a new Celtic rock group out of Houston also has a new CD that will be released in a few weeks. There are some great cuts on their mp3 site as well.

Last, I'm pleased to say that Andy M. Stewart, the former Scottish singer for the band Silly Wizard is touring the U.S. this Fall. I'm excited about this. I've really fallen in love with his songwriting and some of the amazing songs (like "Queen of All Argyle") he has written. He's truly an inspiration. He has a couple songs featured on my Personal Favorites Radio station, which I'd like to add is doing amazingly at MP3.com. A lot of people are checking it out and coming back. Please drop by and listen.
