Hey, I thought some of you would get a kick out of this. I play keyboards and bass in a local celtic folk band, "Celtic Confusion". Of course, my background (and love) is in rock, jazz, and electronic music, and the fiddle player is another big prog fan that I went to high school with. After rocking out too many times on some of our tunes, Patrick, the fiddle player, had this crazy idea to put together a "Space Celtic" duo for the next big folk fest, just as something different. We're calling ourselves "Ashokan Starship".
Here are a few demos in my home studio the other day. Boy is it weird and fun! I thought I'd post a few of them here. So this is me on keyboards, and Pat on fiddle through a bit of effects processing. He's looking to buy a solid body violin so we can go through more robust effects on live. I think we'll go out on stage with Irish tinfoil hats:Flying Home to ShellyAshokan Fairwell
