Tempest’s music can be found at tempestmusic.com. As a five member band they play folk rock with a decidedly Celtic flavor. Since forming in 1988, Tempest has delivered a globally-renowned hybrid of high-energy Folk Rock fusing Irish reels, Scottish ballads, Norwegian influences and other world music elements. The last 28 years have seen the San Francisco Bay Area based act release fifteen critically acclaimed CDs and play more than 2,000 gigs. It’s also enjoyed an evolving line-up that’s enabled musicianship and creativity to rise with each new member. Their latest CD, Another Dawn, showcases inventive original and traditional material.

“Tempest has one of the most unique sounds around, a sound that bridges two continents, one ocean and about a millennium of music history – a sound that has earned Tempest a loyal following that packs houses coast to coast.” –Good Times, Santa Cruz.

“At the Philadelphia Folk Festival, Tempest brought down the house with its mad, high-energy mix of Scottish, Irish, and Scandinavian traditions filtered through driving rock and roll.” –Philadelphia Enquirer.

“Tempest rocks all right, but its forte is folk rock with a decidedly Celtic accent, drawing on traditions stretching back hundreds of years.” –Chicago Tribune
