12 MP3 Songs
WORLD: Celtic, JAZZ: World Fusion
Ed Connor: (Connor) Connor adds the sea shanty voice that makes the women swoon and the men cheer...or is it the other way around. Along with playing the 12 string guitar, Connor provides many of the bands original tunes...when we can translate them...
Tim Howe: (Max the Minstrel) Max is our barker, chief pigeon hunter and snake oil salesman. Amongst his weapondry is FEAR, SURPRISE and a FANATIC devotion to the Mandolin. Max started out as a banjo picker and the after being abducted by aliens and returned he grew a goatee and picked up the Mandolin. Max is an avid sailor.
Mike Hunter: (AKA Mike The Mage) Somewhere in the mist of the 1980''s, Mike sat with his fathers bass guitar and a Roland Space Echo making strange noise into a cassette recorder. Now, many years later, he is The Stone Soup Band''s touch guitarist and occasional lead electric guitarist. Mike can also be found jamming with the progressive improvisational group "Brainstatik" as well as on his solo ambient drone release under his "Ombient" alias. Along with playing the Warr Touch Guitar in the band, he doubles (triples?!) as demo recording engineer, web developer and resident technical mage, hence the "Mage" moniker.
Scott Malone: (AKA Q) To begin with, Q is an enigma. He has an Associates Degree in Art. (Will that be for here or to go?) Q is the dictator of the band''s practices, pushing them until it meets his standards of excellence. He plays the concert flute, penny whistle, tenor and alto sax, clarinet, oboe, bassoon and harp, to name a few.
Bill McDevitt: (AKA The Vicar) The Vicar started his musical career playing in a Catholic church guitar mass (first public performances) and has since then recovered. He credits his strong Irish Catholic background And Mrs. Marcelli as his influence on music.
Albert Papp: (AKA I.B. - Iron Baron) I.B. is the Baron of Revelwood, from whence the band all hail. He has extensive training and vast knowledge of the keyboards (which is why he feels it should be the loudest instrument.) All the band members agree that he has the longest and softest hair.
Ed Small: (The General) Ed Small is the only member of the band that speaks fluent Sicilian. It helps him relax while drumming. When he finally figured out the Bodhran, he was wearing a Pith Helmet and finishing off a bottle of Chivas. His most memorable moment during his first musical tour of Ireland was performing for a touring busload of Swedes at the Kincorra House in the ancient village of Lisdoonvarna. It was there he met the witch while trying to eat some cheese. And there he found the 19 hole underground fairy bus stop. Ed wears a suit. But he''d rather not...
