Happy Beltaine everyone!
We are still looking back with very warm memories to the first FOLK NOIR tour together with Matt Howden of SIEBEN & our crew.
We all had more laughs than we can bare, everyone was in such a merry mood! Special thanks from the band goes to Matt Howden, for wonderful companionship and great shows together, Wim Koning and Becky for all the help & live sound, Jochem for great light and to Chantel for friendship and organising our merchandise.
Before and during the concert in Kammgarn Mr.Tom Bombadil of www.jarwinbenedar.de also helped us that day by organising an epic band photoshoot on a real steamtrain and by filming a few live songs of FOLK NOIR that evening. You can expect a great new bandphoto coming out these days. We are already very happy with it!
And, directly after the tour, our awesome drummer and sound technician *aka. soundgeek* Alex Schulz, has been pretty busy with editing all the filmfootage.
You can now catch a glimps online of the concert we gave in Kammgarn by watching these brand new LIVE videoclips.
Thanks a lot again Mr.Tom Bombadil for the filming and to Alex ofcourse for the video editing.
You can find four LIVE songs on our own FOLK NOIR youtube channel.
Here is already one;

Our friend Killian Keuchel of LifeLight made a wonderful videoclip to very old footage that Kaat dug up last winter in dusty old film files
It captured the feeling of the song perfectly. It's really beautiful dont you think?
Thanks a lot again Killian! We simply love it!

Quotes on FolkNoir:
"" Ihre Stimmen gehören zum Schönsten, was die Folk- und Mittelalter-Szene zu bieten hat. Kein Wunder, dass Oliver SaTyr (Faun) und Kaat Geevers (Leaf) nun gemeinsame Wege beschreiten.
Verträumt, zerbrechlich, einfach nur schön: Sanft und leise dringt der magische Titeltrack ihrer aktuellen EP „Songs From Home Nr. 1“ an Euer Ohr.
Lauscht, genießt und lasst Euch verzaubern.""
