I kept meaning to give them a plug
For fans of Elf Fantasy, Castlefest and Folkwoods they are familiar names.
They recently played in America - at Lammas.
This is part of their recent newsletter:
FAUN in the USA
We had the pleasure to celebrate this years Lughnasad as the Headlining Band at a festival in Oregon/USA. After receiving lots of mails in the last years, requesting to play finally in the USA, we were very happy, that the people of the FAERIEWORLD Festival made it happen. Thanks a lot again, for all the work and good will you invested in us. The presale of the festival worked out that good, that the whole festival had to move to a bigger venue, Mount Pisgah, near Eugene.
Anyhow we couldn't have wished a better audience or setting to celebrate this years Lughnasad, thanks a lot.
Our next concert in the USA will be:
7th Nov. 2009 in Baltimore/USA - Faeriecon.
We are very much looking forward to it
(P. S.: A couple of private pictures from Oliver's camera from this USA trip can be found at our Homepage; "Gallery".)

Acoustic CD: FAUN "Buch der Balladen" (Book of ballads) release 20th Nov. 2009
Besides all the concerts, we have been very busy finishing our upcoming CD "Buch der Balladen". After we did a very successful Acoustic tour in the Winter 08/09 (18 of 22 concerts were sold out), we decided to make a CD out of these acoustic ballads that we enjoyed so much. All the ballads are very old folk songs or medieval fairy tales in the german language. We will release them in a 44 pages Hardcover book, with notes and guitar chords of every song and also translations into the english. On the 20th of Nov., we will also be releasing a "Buch der Balladen - Limited Edition" with one song more, titled "Brynhilds Lied".
Acoustic Tour Feb. - May 2010
After the CD release we will play then another seated acoustic tour, performing the songs of the CD and other more quiet and enchanted medieval music. We are still busy with the bookings of these tour, cause we do try to find very fitting venues like churches, castles ot theaters. In Sept. or latest Oct. '09 we will promote the tour then on our webpage.
Have a beautiful summer,
we hope to celebrate a part of it together.
