The Rogues just wrapped up our first two weeks at the Maryland Renaissance Festival playing to huge crowds and great accolades.  The acoustic sound was a hit with everyone we spoke with and it was great seeing all our Maryland friends again.  We had Bryan Blaylock, Jimmy Mitchell, Ewan Brown and Randy Wothke on stage, with the expertise of Kashira belly dancing and the Teelin School of Irish Dance.  We were also joined by new band member, Kyle Grasty, on Labor Day weekend, so it was great having that 3-bagpipe sound.  We were also joined by EJ Jones for a show  the first weekend, who was there with the Piper Jones Band.  The weather couldn't have been better opening weekend - quite a difference from last year. Thanks to Cherry, Pam and Heather, our awesome sales staff for a job well done.

The new album "Hellbound Sleigh" is available for pre-order and will be finished soon.  Look for the release in October.  The Rogues will be back at MDRF for the final weekend, October 19-20, and will also be hosting the fundraiser for the Ingrid Wendt Memorial Healing Fund Saturday night the 19th at the American Legion Hall just down the road from the renaissance festival.  1905 Crownsville Rd, Annapolis, MD 21401.  We'd love to see a great turn out in memory of Ingrid and to help with the accrued medical costs.  Start time 7:00 pm.

 The next stop for the band is the Connecticut Renaissance Faire on September 21-22 in Norwich, CT.  This will be our first time at this show and really looking forward to seeing our Connecticut friends there and getting to make some new friends as well.
