Hello land-lubbers! This installment we'll tell you about the bizzarre and amazing pre-sale packages we've made available, the cruise we just finished up and our upcoming tour dates. Read on!
We just finished up a week on the Cayamo cruise, and it was an incredible experience. Ellis Paul sat in and performed "Hurricane Angel"; Colin Hay (from Men At Work) jumped on stage and sang "Wild Mountain Thyme" and Brian got to join Shawn Mullins on the headline stage for his song "Can't Remember Summer". As if that wasn't enough, we met and collaborated with tons of other great acts over the course of the week as well. Trevor and Craig wrote a song with Ellis Paul; Brian jumped on stage with Larkin Poe (fantastic young roots-rock band) a few times; Brian and Bruce even got to jam on Stevie Wonder's "Superstition" as part of a late-night supergroup jam session featuring Sarah and Christian Dugas, Chuck Cannon, Shawn Mullins and his band, Roddie Romero and a whole bunch of others. Way to go Cayamo! Hope we can do it again.
Now we're back on solid ground, and we're gearing up for a pretty intense month of shows starting with a few Florida dates (Orlando, Pensacola and Tallahassee) before we start heading back north. This weekend we'll be in the Atlanta area for two shows, so don't miss out! (Scroll down for tour dates).
PRE-SALES NOW AVAILABLE
We recently launched a fundraising campaign in advance of our return to the studio. There are a whole bunch of pre-sale packages, pieces of gear for sale and ETH-themed adventures for you to choose from, so go take a look:
We've already sold a bunch of music lessons, loads of Heart Packages and two lucky (and incredibly generous) Haggis Heads will be getting a recording of ETH playing a song of their choice! It even looks like Brian will be committing to the first of his two joint tattoos by the end of the day. Incredible.
Lots of great packages are still available though - if you've ever wanted to go into space with ETH, now's the time! It'll only cost half a million dollars - totally worth it. Make sure you check out the gear (and kilts!) for sale as well.
SPEAKING OF GEAR..
Annoying note: we've been forced to put our video streaming on an indefinite hiatus. The day before the cruise, someone kindly decided to aid our fuel efficiency by lightening the trailer somewhat, and they helped themselves to a couple of Les Pauls, a few toolboxes and a synth. Sadly, one of the toolboxes contained two camcorders and all our cables and tripods, so we'll have to wait a while before we can start shooting again. Sorry!
GERMANY SEATS STILL AVAILABLE
If you've ever wanted to sip from a 1L glass of beer in a Bavarian beer garden, why not do it this summer with ETH? We're returning to the fabulous Folk Im Schlosshof festival, and we want you to come along! Click the following link for more details:
