The Rogues Debut at the Virginia Renaissance Festival

The Rogues will be appearing for the first time at the Virginia Renaissance Festival this year for two weekends.  Given that we will not be at the Maryland Renaissance Festival this year, it will be a great opportunity to catch us if you are in the MD/VA/DC area.  Virginia is a growing show and at a great time of the year for weather.  The Rogues will be appearing the weekends of May 30-31 and June 6-7, the final two weekends.  The show runs from May 9th - June 7.  It would be amazing to see our friends there and we're looking forward to our first appearance at this great show.  More information available at http://www.varf.org and https://www.facebook.com/groups/varenfaire/

A Great Time at The Rogues 20th Anniversary Show

On November 22nd The Rogues had the honor of performing our 20th Anniversary show in Houston at McGonigel's Mucky Duck.  What a night!  Lots of friends came out, some driving 4-5 hours to get there.  It was 20 years ago that the "Scottish Rogues" had our first performance at the Texas Renaissance Festival.  We had just finished our first cassette tape, self-titled, and had figured out that if we could sell one tape per show then we'd break even, or if we could sell two then we'd make a profit.  You can imagine our surprise at the end of the first day when we had sold 140!  It was amazing to see Virginia Lamp, our salesperson from that first show, at the Duck and looking like she hasn't changed a bit.  Thanks to all of our friends through the years that came out to see the show, and special thanks for everyone who traveled in from the DFW area.  Hopefully we'll be scheduling some shows in your neck of the woods soon.  The band set a new personal record for the most sets played in one show - 27!  It takes a lot of lung power to play that much music on a bagpipe.  Kudos to Jimmy MItchell and Doug Frobese.  Bryan Blaylock and Randy Wothke rounded out the drum section, and we were joined by Brian Thomas, 2nd Horn in the Houston Symphony for a redo of Bonny Portmore from the 5.0 and Made in Texas CDs.  Thanks to the Mucky Duck for providing a great venue for the show as always.  Look for us at Dickens on the Strand next weekend, December 6-7 in Galveston, TX.

Celtic Music Magazine Reviews Hellbound Sleigh

HELLBOUND SLEIGH by The Rogues
(Celtic Music Magazine - November 18, 2014)

When The Rogues' “Hellbound Sleigh” came up for review I jumped at it - even though I'm generally a stickler for not listening to Christmas music before Thanksgiving. This, I thought, would be a fun addition to my Christmas music collection.  I figured it would be weirdly irreverent with the title. I was surprised.

Apart from the title track, Hellbound Sleigh is mostly a lovely  and lively collection of familiar Christmas and Holiday songs - some stand alone, others as part of medleys. Most are instrumental with pipes and bagpipes, violins and drums - along with other instruments that do give these time-honored classics unique elements. For the traditional Celts, and because there aren't that many New Year's songs, The Rogues appeal to all with "Ros' Hogmanay".

I have friends who are bellydancers. I can totally see this album as the base of a holiday-themed dance routine for them. There's a tribal sense to the instrumentals that make you want to move to the rhythm. That's not so hard to imagine since there are tracks like "March, Pat-a-Pan and Reel" and "Christmas Eve Reel/The Maple Leaf/Joy to the World" medley.

There are amazing - and different - combinations of songs on this album, too. I wouldn't ever have considered melding "Jingle Bells" with "Good King Wenceslas", but this works. It really works - to the point that I'm really looking forward to having this in my Christmas playlist just for the fact that it's “different” and very intricate and cool. My church has a symphonic violin player.  I'm very tempted to make him listen to "O Holy Night/Ave Maria" because it's beautifully performed and haunting at the same time. The skill and musicianship is intricate and skilled.

If you're like me and buy a new Christmas album each year, this is the one to get this year.
