Well, I don't know about the rest of the US economy, but I am grateful to report that we're all hard at work here in Rathkeltairville. Major overhauls to the website, new marketing, not to mention a bunch of new merch- it's an exciting time for us. And it's all thanks to YOU (insert your name here)!
Here's some things we're just about ready to launch:
- a new flavor of hot sauce, called (yep, you guessed it) Something GOOD for a Change! I haven't been down to the RKA Test Kitchen lately, but Professor Tanner and Dr. Watson promise me that the new recipe is guaranteed to kick some serious ARSE (or at least singe it severely!)
- a new t-shirt design guaranteed to turn heads as you REPRESENT :)
- a couple of surprise items that I am not allowed to mention yet (but trust me, you'll dig it)
- a bunch of new venues for 2012- Rob is leaving no stone unturned in our search for new and different markets (as well as maintaining our favorite old ones.) Our Tour Page is full of dates and looks to stay that way for a good long while (thanks again, to YOU!)
Response to the NEW CD has been incredible- we've been playing most of the material from it on stage lately and are really having fun ironing all the kinks out of the live versions. We are also already working on the next couple of recordings (more to follow on this as it progresses)
We're excited to be returning to WNC Celtic Fest at Black Mountain, NC this month- last year was a blast, this year promises to be more so, especially since our brothers in arms ALBANNACH are headlining- so look for a reunion of the dreaded ALBAKELTER (or RATHBANNACH) at some point during the weekend!
OK, that's enough outta me- back to work- see you soon!
All the best,
