Bardic Circle - Samhain, MMXI

We started playing out at various venues, including AOH halls (Ancient Order of Hibernians, an Irish social organization), St Patty's Day and Half-way to St Patty's Day gigs, fundraisers, sessions, medieval events, and house parties. Tim created a website for us: which is no longer active as of 2019.

We took more pains to create better recordings, and even made a video of one of Tim's songs, Into The Drink which can be found below. Cate switched to mandolin from guitar during this period and started to take the vocal lead on some songs. She wasn't very happy with this CD, but it marks the last recordings we did with Tim before he left to go back to school and for that, its definitely special - good memories here.
