In the several years that I’ve been a part of this forum, many have been intrigued in one of my side hobbies where I perform at various Rennaisance Festivals as a singing (and playing) Pirate! The Glowforge has even played a HUGE role in making one of the instruments that we play on stage! (here)
Our band has been working for the past 5 months on recording our newest CD and we are nearing the end of the process. If you would like to support us, please consider backing our Kickstarter (https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/scalesandcrosstones/scales-and-crosstones-4th-folk-and-shanty-album?ref=email). The risks are super low since we have completed nearly 80% of the CD already (all recording is done, we are currently most of the way through the mixing stage). This kickstarter is simply to attempt to make sure that we finish everything on time.
If you would like to hear us in person and you live close to the Mid-Atlantic region, come out to the Virginia Renaissance Festival in May and June, or the Maryland Renaissance Festival in August, September, and October!
