News, January 2019:

The Workshop is still buzzing away happily, and exciting beasties are emerging and evoking squeals of delight from their new mommies and daddies on a regular basis. Orpharions are suddenly very popular. Waiting time for new commissions continues to hover around 12 months.

We continue to play at venues all over the country, inlcuding our first appearance at the Ludlow Festival. A party in Cornwall, a wedding in Edinburgh, and a few events at Warwick Castle. We have a new bandwagon. The old, stalwart Renault decided it was time to retire. Ave atque vale. Ave novum plaustra.

Two significant recordings last year - a full symphony orchestra in May, performing "Celtic Rhapsody" by Andrew Downes. You can hear it here. Then "Music of the Plantagenets" - the first CD by Archaedium. Available here.

As always, if there's anything you spot on the site that needs immdediate attention, I generally respond to being poked. Just email me with *poke* in the subject line and I'll at least wake up and wonder who on earth poked me. paul@diabolus.org
