Contribution to the Show
You can hear our first ever Dolmen track, Danny Boy, in our Spring Equinox Holiday Special for 2011, SP23. We are proud to be able to bring you Danny Boy as it is a preview from their forthcoming album, Storm which should be available later in 2011. The amazingly evocative Amergin from their earlier Stonehenge album can be heard in our Spring Holiday Special, SP28 show. You can also get your feet jumping with the awesome Midwinter Dances from their new album Wytchlord in our 2013 New YEar Party Show, SP33.
You can rock out the winter with The Oak and Holly Kings from their album Winter Solstice in our Winter Music Special for 2013, SP38.
An all original set both musically and in character, their pumping rhythms derive from the best ingredients of Celtic and deep Folk, bathed in the surf of Piratical Rock. Far from the expected, The Dolmen has proudly developed an identity that puts them in their own musically unique area. They have toured and covered most of the major venues including 3 years at Glastonbury Festival amongst many others UK Festivals. Due to a recent increase of popularity in mainland Europe and the USA, the last year has witnessed the American manufacture and distribution of CD's abroad.
THE DOLMEN … A STORM IS ABOUT TO HIT EUROPE.
Every so often, a band comes out of the Celtic heartlands, takes the musical audience by the throat and shakes it hard. And guess what, it’s about to happen again. The ever popular Celtic Folk-Rock scene in the UK has served up a real rough diamond, THE DOLMEN, a gig-hardened bunch of piratical rebel-rousers from the clan-lands, whose music and live performances have become the stuff of tribal legend, being both unique and very addictive. In 2011 they take this raw energy to mainland Europe.
With eleven albums under their belts, a string of big festival appearances in the UK, including three Glastonbury performances and the honour of writing and performing the song for the global ‘New Seven Wonders of the World’ Competition (said to be the largest online vote in history) this band’s credentials are written in stone. A formidable blend of youth and experience, The Dolmen have received rave reviews from the great and the good for their album work, a mixture of mysticism, legend and cold, stark history served up in the most astonishing ways.
Their latest album, Spirits of the Sea, conjures the wild and free nautical spirit of the Golden Age of Piracy. And with this magic, the band enchants every live performance, where no quarter is asked or given. These Celtic islanders will plunder the senses and they will capture the heart.
