CD Release Party This Week

The RavensFire Band

The RavensFire Band

People have asked about RavensFire‘s CD for months, and the wait is almost over. This Saturday afternoon everyone can get their own copy of some of our favorite traditional Irish and original tunes.

A couple of days ago we drove to the Cities to pick up the CDs. They look good and sound wonderful. Now it’s your turn to hear the results of our time with Jim at North Coast Productions.

Our friends love RavensFire‘s versions of traditional songs like Whisky in the Jar and original pieces like the love song Willow Wood. The CD features both of these songs and many more. A frequent comment from our friends is “You guys look like you’re having fun!” We are, and we want everyone who comes to see RavensFire to join the fun.

Songs on the CD are a mix of traditional Irish tunes and original songs written by Melissa Schmidt.

I hope you can bring your friends to the celebration at Studio 5 in Rochester next door to the Post Town Winery. The venue is on the West Highway 14 frontage road, just west of the big car dealer, and across West Circle Drive. The fun starts at 3:00 as usual, and we will play until 7:00.
