I’m guessing it won’t come as much of a surprise that I’m something of self-professed nerd.
Amongst my nerdy pursuits is LARP (or Live Action Roleplaying – see here if you don’t know what it is).
Some years ago now, I was a plot writer for the LARP system I was involved with, and, as part of a plotline, I produced several nursery rhymes, which were recorded – with suitably disturbing child-like voices – by a friend, Phil Callan.
In 2010, Phil decided to produce his first ever album – Visions Of A Dragon – a collection of folk songs inspired by celtic traditions and stories from LARP. Phil and another friend, Michelle Cleland, adapted one of the nursery rhymes I’d written – Hurry Now, Make No Sound – into a song for the album.
Phil has since started his own independent music and audio production company. He’s recently re-mastered Visions Of A Dragon – including my little nursery rhyme, and, more importantly, a load of awesome songs by talented musicians – and made it available for the general public to purchase.
You can find out more about the album and its history here on the Red Banner Studios website.
The album is available to buy on Bandcamp here.
