Good to talk to you earlier and thanks for your
Please find attached further information on the
Geyers, unique and hugely talented renaissance and medieval minstrels from
Stuttgart. They have been together since the late 1980's and have
recorded many albums both acoustic and historock, also they are one of Ritchie
Blackmore's biggest inspirations and have been the opening slot to Ritchie's
band Blackmore's Night for the last 10 years. They are becoming
increasingly well known in the UK having played shows in England and Wales every
year since 2001 with appearances in national music press and a session
on Radio Nottingham just some of the highlights. Among their rapidly
growing following is folk legend Dave Pegg from Fairport Convention who was
blown away by the band at Rochester.
As promised please find link to the Geyers website
both the official German site and the UK site maintained by me & my other
half. As disc the band will be in the UK in October and I am currently working
on their itinerary and am hopeful of being able to capitalise on their highly
successful appearances at The Sweeps with more dates in and around Rochester, to
go with the two dates already confirmed in Cornwall.
If you could forward this mail on to interested
parties or offer any suggestions for gigs or better still a booking it would be
Thanks again and look forward to hearing from you.
