ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
[public announcement from TARTANIC L.L.C on March 19th 2007]
To the Fans of Tartanic:

The ship has sailed, and we’re on our way to the Promised Land: for some that’s Tahiti, others Reno, and for others it’s back on the road to pursue personal endeavours.

Bottom Line: Tartanic has finally come to port at Davie Jones' Locker.

Jack Black once asked, “Is it better to burn out or fade away?” Well, we’ve lit the wick and walked away to watch the fireworks (not like we could ever see them at TRF). Our only hope is that we won’t drown to the raspy noise of a string quartet. If I were playing violin on the Titanic as I watched life boats fade away into the night sea, my last line would not be, “Gentlemen, it’s been a real pleasure.” Instead, I'd probably say, "I call shotgun!"

In all seriousness, Tartanic will not be touring after the close of the Arizona Renaissance Festival. Please come out to Apache Junction to give us your support because it's truly been a joy to entertain you. Also, come and get your Tartanic CDs because they're going like hot cakes and won't be available for much longer (AZRF ends April 1, 2007). They will also be available at CDBaby.com until that date.

Again, we've enjoyed our run for the last five years and we've especially loved meeting all of our adoring fans. In ten years, we'll look back at this period in our lives and think fondly on it.

We Love You,

The Guys of Tartanic



Tartanic marries music from two of the most prominent folk traditions in Western Europe--Scotland and Brittany--and sets it to world drumming. While staying true to our roots in the Highland bagpipe tradition, with the inclusion of traditional competition sets, we add some progressive hits that'll have you dancing in your seats.

The meat of the album, however, is the sampling of Breton dance tunes. A stylized and lazy An Dro set sends us to Brittany, and the lively Ronde and fast-paced Plinn melodies get you moving. It's hard to miss the contribution of the bombard, an ancient instument native to Brittany, in theese sets.

Blending these noted musical traditions in a singular style demands equally innovative percussion. A driving bass from the bodhran complements the unyielding pulses of the doumbek. This combination of multiple styles results in rhythms any dancer is sure to find a groove in, regardless of dancing tradition.

The past is present, new is old. While some keep ancient and modern squarely in their places, to us, this is unthinkable.

BADASS!!!
This CD is badass! The drums, the piping...all phenomenal on this album! I'm from Houston and wait to follow these guys around at the TX Ren Fest each year.

amazing
These guys are great. While not all of the members of the original group are still together, I know that Tartanic is still alive and kicking, and still rocking it. Because if it's not Scottish....IT'S CRAP! I have enjoyed their bagpipes and drums at the KC Ren Fest for years, and will hopefully be seeing them again in the fall. Rock on Tartanic.

Great fun music
Too bad Tartanic is breaking up. It was a pleasure to be introduced to their music at the KC RenFaire last year. I just bought Unmistakeable as sort of a tribute to them and their raucous music. Great fun.

Wow! These guys are incredible: incredibly unique, incredible showmen, and incr
The title of Tartanic's album "Unmistakeable" really sums up the album. These guys have an amazing signature sound and show. I highly recommend this album to bellydancers, Middle Eastern music fans, Celtic music fans, and people who are looking for something unique and upbeat.

Too awesome!!!
The shows at the AZ RenFest are magnificant! The guys are not only extremely talented but also very funny. It was one of the best shows of the RenFest that we have ever seen. A must see for the whole family. And, fyi, Adrian is a great hugger. lol

Fantastic Album
I first saw these guys 2 years ago at the Kansas City Renaissance Festival. I sas them again last year and just had to get a CD. I bought one of the CDs that they were selling at the Festival, and while it was good, it had a more new-age sound than what they were playing at the Festival. When I found this CD on CD Baby I was estatic and as soon as it was available again, I snatched up a copy for myself. This CD was exactly what I was looking for and truly is the next best thing to seeing these guys live.

A Gem
As others have said, it's a shame they're breaing up. I first saw Tartanic a year ago at the AZ Ren Fest and was spellbound, and not just because I love bagpipes. They are extremely talented and fun guys. I didn't buy any CD's last year because I hadn't the money. Thankfully I had saved enough to buy this, especially now that there won't be any more. My favorite track on this is "A Moroccan 6". It uses such unusual bagpipes and is truly mesmerising.

Almost as good as seeing them in a LIVE show!
This is probably one of their better CDs. It's fun to listen to, and sometimes I even put it on repeat, because it's over too quickly and I don't want to change discs. I wish I knew how to get a copy of their All Abroad album. Anybody know, drop me a line at mnance@cerritos.edu. Tartanic ROCKS!

Unmistakeable
Fantastic album. I recently saw them preform live for the first time at the AZRF and I'm deeply saddened to hear that will be the last time. A fond farewell and good luck to all of you.

I love these guys
It's a crying shame that these guys are breaking up. Their music is so different and wonderful. My friend Alice and I saw them at the Texas Rennaissance Festival, and we caught every performance. I wish they would make a DVD of themselves, since they can't be seen live anymore after April 1st. It's a cruel blow. Thank goodness I bought their Unthinkable CD.
