Emerald Rose is known as an energetic, exciting four-man ensemble from Georgia performing both traditional and original Celtic-inspired folk rock. Since 1997, the band has been developing a unique sound blending guitar, pennywhistle, pipes, world percussion and harmony vocals that dances through many styles, from traditional Celtic dance to modern folk/rock, mythic ballads, pop, and humor. The band has just released their sixth full-length CD, "Con Suite"
Emerald Rose is well-known on the sci-fi/fantasy 'con circuit, from regular performances at Dragon*con in Atlanta, I*Con in NY, and Oscars party performances in Hollywood for Peter Jackson's "Lord of the Rings" epic movies. Their music is featured in two genre documentaries, "Ringers: Lord of the Fans" by TheOneRing.net, and Brian Wiser's "Done the Impossible" about Joss Whedon's Firefly/Serenity phenomenon.
"Con Suite" is a departure into "pure comedy" for the band, featuring songs written for and about sci-fi/fantasy fandom (among many other topics!) While there's a Celtic "feel" to some tracks, it's more in the "comedy pop" category -- closer to Weird Al or TMBG than The Chieftains. We hope you enjoy hearing it as much as we did creating it!
