Looking for music in CT...this is the site.

The Session

The exchange of tunes is what keeps traditional Irish music alive. This website is one way of passing on jigs, reels and other dance tunes.

CD Baby

This is a great web site to search for all types of independently produced music. They must be good because they carry Full Gael as one of their artists!

Rick Spencer

Chanteyman, singer-songwriter, and all around great guy.

Tom Lewis

Tom is a 25-year veteran of Her Majesty's Royal Navy, although now he's comfortably located on dry land in British Columbia, Canada. His songs cover a wide range of nautical topics, from
life on board H.M. ships, through the loneliness and lure of the sea.
He wrote the Last Chantey that we recorded on our cd.


This is where to find the down-loadable (PDF format) collection of tunes played by Galway and Connecticut fiddler Eddie Burke, who died in 2005. Jeanne had the privilege of assisting on
this project with several other musicians.

Celtic Mp3s Music Magazine

A great web site with CD reviews, legal downloads, and lots of independent celtic artists. Check it out.

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.
