Celtic Rock Band Tempest Plays The Linda March 31
What better way to send off the month that holds Saint Patrick’s Day? Tempest brings their “The Going Home Tour” to Albany on Thursday, March 31 at The Linda.
Hailing from Oslo, Norway, founding member and lead singer/electric mandolinist, Lief Sorbye, is recognized as a driving force in the modern folk-rock movement. He started Tempest in 1988 after years of touring and recording on the folk circuit. The band also features San Francisco’s Lee Corbie-Wells (fiddle, vocals), Bulgaria-born Nikolay Georgiev (guitars), Michigan’s Hugh Caley, (bassist), and Cuban drummer Adolfo Lazo, who is an original member of Tempest.
The Bay Area Celtic Rock Band Tempest has released a new album, “Going Home,” on the group’s new record label Celtodelic on St. Patrick’s Day, March 17, 2022. Co-produced by band leader Lief Sorbye and Robert Berry (3, December People) in November and December of 2021, the album is best described as “Euro Celtic,” as Tempest incorporates more Scandinavian and British Isles material into their brand of Progressive Folk Rock.
You can purchase tickets here. The show starts at 8 pm and tickets range from $22 to $30.
