Tempest - Summer 2016 - some new dates

“The Tracks We Leave” 
"The band opened the first set with “September Jig,” an instrumental track from the new album, followed by a return to their first album, 1991’s Bootleg, with “Heather On the Moor.” While the band maintains much of the traditional style associated with Irish and Scottish folk music, they bring prog and hard rock sensibilities to it that serve to enliven and modernize their sound, carrying on a tradition in folk rock started by bands like Steeleye Span and Lindisfarne in the 60s and 70s. Likely most surprising to those seeing Tempest for the first time is Sorbye’s double-necked electric mandolin. The mandolin might not be an instrument that’s generally associated with rocking out, but watching Sorbye and hearing the sounds coming from it (as intense as any electric guitar) will change anyone’s mind quickly. For a trio of songs from the new album – “Fog on the Bay” (a new version of a song which Sorbye wrote with his previous band, Golden Bough), “Ganesh,” and a new arrangement of classic Tempest track “Surfing to Mecca” (originally the title track from the band’s third album from 1994) – Sorbye switched to Ian Anderson-influenced flute. They closed the set out with traditional Scottish song “Eppy Moray” and “Wizard’s Walk” from 2007’s The Double Cross."

Points North Live this Summer



September 10, 2016
Starlite Lounge1517 21st St,
Sacramento, California 95811
8 PM


In our "Fred Barchetta" incarnation, we're partnering with Bay Area YES tribute Shine Delerious to bring you "RUSH vs. YES - an evening of epic music from two of the world’s most recognized names in progressive rock".

This will be the first of what we hope to be many "RUSH vs YES" shows, and the initial response has been amazing - come see what all the buzz is about!

Points North

“Points North” is the self-titled, second album by this primarily instrumental rock band. Spearheaded by guitarist Eric Barnett (a finalist in Guitar Player magazine's Guitar Superstar competition), bassist Uriah Duffy (Whitesnake) and drummer Kevin Aiello, Points North stands on the shoulders of iconic artists Rush, Cream, The Police and Dixie Dregs - but expands upon these influences and clearly cuts its own artistic path.
