With contributions from Randy Wothke, Lars Sloan, Doug Frobese, Ewan Brown, Kyle Grasty, Bryan Blaylock, EJ Jones and Miriam-Rose Leduc on Scottish fiddle, every track is something different and unexpected.

Beautiful artwork by talented artist Todd Shearer completes the package and the best part is, it's NOW ON SALE! Until December 31 2015 we're taking $3 off the original price of $20. This is the equivalent of free shipping in the US. If you haven't yet gotten to hear this one of a kind recording or want to gift your favorite music to someone else, now is the time!

Annapolis Irish Festival Recap


The 5th Annual Annapolis Irish Festival is now history and The Rogues were honored to be part of it. With 5 shows throughout the weekend, the band anchored the Fado Stage on Friday and Saturday, which we shared with Albannach, Barleyjuice and The Kilmaine Saints.

 It was great seeing all our friends who came out, and we had the pleasure of being joined by our good friend Maia Rodriguez with a little Irish step dancing in our 4:00 show on Saturday, and thanks to all those belly dancers, step dancers and free spirits who were moved to dance anytime we performed.

For all you Outlander fans, the band debuted their version of the theme music, Skye Boat Song, to a very appreciative crowd. One eager listener inquired about which CD that tune was on, but that will be something to look forward to on the next one.

Many thanks to the Annapolis Irish Festival for having The Rogues back for our 4th out of 5 years of the show, and we hope to be back in the future. Also thanks to all our friends who came out to support the band. If it weren't for you we wouldn't be here at all.

And don't forget, we'll be at John Strongbow's Tavern this Friday night, July 17th, if you'd like another go round. For reservations call 703-329-3075. Hope to see you there!

Great Times at the Virginia Renaissance Festival

The Rogues just finished up our two week run at the Virginia Renaissance Festival on June 7th and what a great time it was.  On the grounds of the beautiful Lake Anna Winery, the band performed on The Rose Stage the first weekend and then in the Barleycorn Pub for the last weekend.  It was great seeing so many familiar faces and to make new friends as well.  We are definitely hoping to be back next year for more weekends.

In addition to Randy on drums/keyboard and Ewan and Kyle on pipes, we were joined by Mark Sullivan on drums, and you'll be seeing more of Mark on future shows.  The Virginia Renaissance Faire staff is very dedicated to their festival, and we want to thank them for deciding to bring us in this year.  Please let the festival know your appreciation for having us there too.  Their e-mail is comeplay@varf.org .  Look for The Rogues next at the Annapolis Irish Festival in Crownsville, MD at the Anne Arundel County Fairgrounds on July 10-11.  See you there!
