Has it really been three months since I updated this thing? Okay, this is gonna be a quickly-written post.
We’re playing at the Steampunk World’s Fair this weekend. Check the Facebook event for showtimes, or you can go to the event’s website for a detailed performance schedule. Lots of fun music happening this year.
Baroque and Hungry is on Twitter, you should all follow us at @baroquehungry.
We have tee-shirts for sale. We’ll have ‘em at the event this weekend, will see about getting a mail-order internet thing up soon. CDs, buttons, patches, and messenger bags are all still available.
Album news: We’re hoping for a late summer release. Almost at the end of recording, mixing will be next. More to follow soon, including the album title. (Suggestions are welcome for that.)
We’re playing at Wicked Faire this year! Come join us for some Celtic mayhem and merriment. Also for music.
FYI, Wicked is at two hotels again this year. Here’s our schedule:
Stolen from Matt’s Facebook wall:
Are you sick of hearing Christmas music already? Do you need to move on from songs about the holidays to topics that are more relevant to daily life, like drinking, lost love, drinking, war and drinking? Do you want to help some poor starving-artist types buy nice Christmas presents for their kids? Do you want me to shut up already? Then why not get yourself a download of some Baroque & Hungry or Matt DeBlass albums?
Cheaper than a giant Mocha at the mall and tastier than a regifted fruitcake!
Click on the albums and send us money, so we can buy Christmas presents and booze:
Our studio version of the medley “Hills of Connemara/I’ll Tell Me Ma” has been featured on the Irish & Celtic Music podcast. Here’s the link to podcast #132. Thanks again, Stephen.
You’ll also want to listen to “A Man’s A Man For A’ That” by The Duplets. It’s a great, haunting version.
We’re back from playing at the Connecticut Renaissance Faire with The Trouveres, and we had a great time!
We’re playing at steampunk bar The Way Station in Brooklyn again, on January 17th, as part of a triple bill:
More info as we get it.
Not quite band news, but close:
Matt, Neil, and Roger will be playing as members of [The Trouveres](http://thetrouveres.com/) at the New York Renaissance Faire on September 22/23 (Saturday and Sunday) in Tuxedo Park, NY. From their site:
A Renaissance Faire is a recreation of a Renaissance or Medieval village. They are filled with costumed actors, crafts and games to give patrons the illusion that they have stepped back in time. The New York Renaissance Faire features over 125 performance on 20 stages and over 100 craftspeople set on 65 acres of beautiful Sterling Forest.
The New York Renaissance Faire has over 75 costumed actors, over 20 independent specialty acts and over 100 craftspeople. The buildings of our village are permanently built and the grounds are only used for the Faire.
For more about the NYRF, check out their FAQ.
This faire is much larger than the NJ Faire we played at a few weeks ago. The NYRF is not only kid-friendly but, according to their site, kid-accessible (i.e., more ramps for strollers). They also do costume rentals (although costumes are by no means required).
The two bands–Baroque & Hungry and The Trouveres–have some commonalities, although The Trouveres has more of a lush, folksy feel to it. B&H fans, we’d love to see you in the audience!
Matt’s playing at the Somerset County 4-H fair tonight (Wed 8 Aug). His set is at 9pm. Free admission.
In other news, “Not What I Meant”, David W. Jacobsen’s latest album–with some songs featuring percussion by members of Baroque & Hungry–is now available on CD Baby and on the iTunes store. Go have a listen, and please buy if you like what you hear. He’s put the lyrics up on his own site. I think this is his strongest album yet.
