The Celtic Collection: Celtic Crescent (2003)


New and old tunes containing themes that resonate with the Celtic lands.

This CD was produced during 2002 at Starbridge Studios. We had originally envisioned this CD to be strictly a re-release of songs from our previous CD's, providing a collection of songs that would fit the "Celtic" market and have a very broad appeal. As we worked on it, however, we realized we had some new material that really belonged on the CD; specifically, our bluesy version of "Loch Lomond" and the upbeat take on the classic "Wild Mountain Thyme". In addition, the recordings of the jig set (Scatter the Mud/Tar Road to Sligo/Paddy Clancy's) and the reel set (Round the World for Sport/The Otter's Nest) from our first CD just weren't acceptable for re-release, and we spent some time to re-record these in the studio. We also include a recording of our original "World's Wedding" from a live show on WMNF radio down in Tampa, Florida.

We're very pleased with the result! We hope you will be too. While the songs still cover a broad range of styles, and include studio and live cuts, the overall collection is more theme-focused and unified. The knotwork "crescent" art by Kathleen Hayward makes a bold, colorful cover, and is reproduced in metallic watermark on the CD itself, making a very nice effect.

Patchwork Merchant Mercenaries had its humble beginnings as an idea of a few artisans and craftsmen who enjoy performing with live steel fighting. As well as a patchwork quilt tent canvas. Most had prior military experience hence the name.


Patchwork Merchant Mercenaries.


Vendertainers that brought many things to a show and are know for helping out where ever they can.

As well as being a place where the older hand made items could be found made by them and enjoyed by all.

We expanded over the years to become well known at what we do. Now we represent over 100 artisans and craftsman that are well known in their venues and some just starting out. Some of their works have been premiered in TV, stage and movies on a regular basis.

Specializing in Medieval, Goth , Stage Film, BDFSM and Practitioner.

Patchwork Merchant Mercenaries a Dept of, Ask For IT was started by artists and former military veterans, and sword fighters, representing over 100 artisans, one who made his living traveling from fair to festival vending medieval wares. The majority of his customers are re-enactors, SCAdians and the like, looking to build their kit with period clothing, feast gear, adornments, etc.

Likewise, it is typical for these history-lovers to peruse the tent (aka mobile store front) and, upon finding something that pleases the eye, ask "Is this period?"

A deceitful query!! This is not a yes or no question. One must have a damn good understanding of European history (at least) from the fall of Rome to the mid-1600's to properly answer. Taking into account, also, the culture in which the querent is dressed is vitally important. You see, though it may be well within medieval period, it would be strange to see a Viking wearing a Caftan...or is it?

After a festival's time of answering weighty questions such as these, I'd sleep like a log! Only a mad man could possibly remember the place and time for each piece of kitchen ware, weaponry, cloth, and chain within a span of 1,000 years!! Surely there must be an easier way, a place where he could post all this knowledge...

Traveling Within The World is meant to be such a place. A place for all of these artists to keep in touch and directly interact with their fellow geeks and re-enactment hobbyists, their clientele.
