"Fairport Convention meets Bartok." That's how Ed from Iowa describes Aircastle. 2013 marked the 40 year anniversary of Aircastle with the release of the digital single "Dead Giveaway," which showcases the band's unique blend of composed rock, three-part vocal harmonies, orchestrated strings, syncopated rhythms, jazz flute and wild guitar solos. "Dead Giveaway" features David Godet on electric guitar.
Aircastle: Teri Lee - violin, Dawn Hyde - cello, Fran Carbonaro - vocals, Don Detrich - vocals, Ed Durbrow - bass guitar, Kendrick Freeman - drums, David Godet - electric guitar, Robert Gilmore - lead vocals, acoustic guitar, flute.
