The folks from Emerald Rose write: Fresh from their rowdy performances at ELF last month, Emerald Rose is hard at work rehearsing for the massive five day party that is DragonCon. The Tolkien track will feature the band performing at the annual Evening at Bree party on Friday night, September 1 at 8 pm, hosted this year by Arms of Middle Earth. The boys in kilts will be joined onstage this year by TORn sib Greendragon, an accomplished opera singer from Boston, for a performance of the LOTR classic ‘Into the West’. Her memorable performance of the song at ELF last year in Orlando was a high point in the show, with many fans singing along for the chorus. Greendragon is one of a very few musicians to have joined Emerald Rose onstage for live performance in their ten year career.
While TORn readers will know Emerald Rose from the LOTR Oscar parties and the Ringers soundtrack, a new group of movie fans will be enjoying the band’s music with the release of ‘Done the Impossible: The Fan’s Tale of Firefly and Serenity’, a documentary about the Firefly phenomena. Ten instrumental tracks from the band’s recent cd ‘Archives of Ages to Come’ were used in the movie’s soundtrack. The band also recorded a new arrangement of Joss Whedon’s ‘Ballad of Serenity’ along with an original filk song ‘Big Damn Heroes’. [emeraldrose.com]
