Heather is also hoping to release an updated CD of instrumental dance music.
FROM: Heather Dale's Music News: April 2007
Here are two new projects by Mistress Marian of Heatherdale (Ealdormere; mka Heather Dale), which should be of interest to bards, instrumental musicians, and dance re-enactors. Please address any emails to Marian at info@AmphisMusic.com -- all feedback is appreciated! In modern life, Heather is a professional recording artist and touring musician... more info about her music can be found online by clicking "original article"
1) THE AMPHISBAENA PROJECT
Several years ago, I started an online gateway website for finding historically-inspired recording artists. The website grew out of my involvement with various historical groups, and featured (ahem) "independent recording artists who create original works or interpretations that celebrate historical life up until the Renaissance era". The Amphisbaena Project had to be put on long-term hold because of my expanding tour schedule -- but I'm happy to to say that it's close to being resurrected. We're not there yet, but the new site is almost completely coded and I'm in the process of contacting all the formerly participating artists. If you know any indie recording artists who fit the above "historical" description, please have them contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org (with "Amphisbaena Project" in the subject line) for more info about participating. More details soon!
2) "DANCES BY THE MARIAN ENSEMBLE -PART 2" - CD PROJECT
Ben and I are working on a re-release of my instrumental album "Dances by the Marian Ensemble" (Heather Dale), which features music for Medieval and Renaissance traditional dances. We are also planning on recording a follow-up "Dances by the Marian Ensemble II" disc later this year. If you are a period dance re-enactor, please contact me at (with "Marian Ensemble" in the subject line) with any specific recommendations for dance tunes that you'd like to see included. Feel free to post this request to any appropriate period dance-related e-lists.
