Since forming in 1988, Tempest has delivered a globally-renowned hybrid of high-energy Celtic Rock. But as the band has matured throughout the years, their music has morphed stylistically. World Music has seeped into Tempest’s over all sound because the band members are drawn to traditional and ethnic music from around the globe. There has been a natural progression towards coloring Tempest’s music with elements from Scandinavia, India, African and Arabic countries. Middle Eastern flavors, traditional Irish and Scottish Medleys mingle with Robert Burns poems, Norwegian lyrics and heavy rock instrumentals on Tempest’s finest record to date.
Over the last 30 years, the San Francisco Bay area based act has released fifteen critically acclaimed CDs and played more than 2,000 gigs. 2018 will see Tempest continue touring and bringing their Celtodelic Rock to their established and new fans while supporting their new (spring 2018 release) album, “Thirty Little Turns” on Magna Carta Records.
Lief Sorbye, the founder of Tempest, has introduced unusual instruments into their own blend of world folk music. Keeping the spirits of the audience and the band uplifted through energetic and entertaining performances that span the spectrum from Celtic and Folk Festivals to Rock Clubs has always been the ultimate goal for Tempest.
The Northerly Gales are a Twin Cities-based Celtic/Americana quartet showcasing soaring pipes, fiddle, and driving rhythm. Whether you’re looking to tap your feet, forget your troubles, or just share a pint over some great tunes, look no further …The Gales are always ready to rock.
