SIX STRINGS AND COFFEE BEANS

Since 2007, Tullamore has had the pleasure and privilege of sharing the stage alongside Brian McNeill , Ed Miller, John Taylor, Alex Beaton, and a host of other great musicians that comprise the line-up of the Texas Scottish Festival. The Festival has become a staple in the band’s annual Spring calendar, and has given rise to a great number of friendships, and performing relationships and opportunities. It was there that they met and became friends with Ed Miller, who they see and socialize with anywhere between Dallas and Dunkeld… or Hugh Morrison, who has begun accompanying the band as a guest-artist when the tour internationally… or Ros and Paul Shepherd, who have welcomed the band into their Houston home to perform house-concerts in the last couple years.

This past June (2011), it was Dave Olson (friend of the Festival, friend of the band, and organizer of Six Strings ‘n Coffee Beans – the acoustic music outreach at Advent Lutheran Church) who connected with the band after a Sunday afternoon performance at the Glencoe Tent, and put into motion the course of actions that would have the band returning in mid-October to perform a concert there. On the heels of those arrangements, David Glass sowed the seeds of a concert-recording. He would be the sound-man for the concert, and had both the wherewithal and inclination to individually track the concert and dump the tracks onto a hard-drive for the band’s convenience. It only took one more conversation – with producer (and Tannahill Weaver) Phil Smillie – and it was a done deal.

The concert itself was a blast – with an incredibly-friendly capacity-crowd that included friends of Mark and Mary from their Scarborough Renaissance Festival days in the early-1990s. It was a genuine pleasure to see such a great array of friends and fans. Of the material performed at the concert, the effort has been made to include as many new pieces as possible. There are four pieces from the band’s other CDs, but two of those have been re-arranged… and all four are oldies-but-goodies… so expect to be thoroughly entertained.
