The veil is growing thinner, and the time is nigh for the ancient Celtic tradition of Samhain…
Embrace the darkness and the fire with Tempest, and their globally-renowned repertoire of high-energy Folk Rock, Irish reels, Scottish ballads, and other songs from the wild northern isles.
Doors at 7:30pm ~ Show at 8pm
Since forming in 1988, Tempest has delivered a globally-renowned hybrid of high-energy Folk Rock, fusing Irish reels, Scottish ballads, Norwegian influences and other world music elements. The last 30 plus years have seen the San Francisco Bay Area based act release eighteen critically acclaimed CDs and play more than 2,500 gigs. It’s also enjoyed an evolving line-up that’s enabled musicianship and creativity to progress in delightful ways with each new member.
Tempest is regularly featured at prestigious festivals such as The Philadelphia Folk Festival, and has also appeared at Denmark’s Skagen Festival, Britain’s Cropredy Festival and The Winnipeg Folk Festival in Canada. The band is a mainstay at countless American Celtic festivals, as well.
Tempest is busting out of a two years’ pandemic-enforced hiatus from extensive touring with a new, powerful release. Going Home is the band’s first studio album of new material in four years, and one of their best to date!
