Riders in the Night, the fourth studio album of original works by Greenrose Faire, featuring the previous released singles, Never Walk Alone, (2018) and Cold Winds Are Rising (2017).
Riders in the Night, has all the well-orchestrated upbeat tempos and melodic ballads that we have come to expect from Greenrose Faire. What sets this album apart from their previous endeavors: (Beggars and Thieves, Neverending Journey, My Home Is Where My Heart Is, Feed The Flames, and compilation-Decades of Songs and Stories) is the storyline interwoven from first track to last. With lyrics that stress value of friendship and solidarity in a troubled world: “Riders in the night, my friends…I tell you that together we are so much stronger”; to lyrics that give hope and inspiration: “Imagine there's someone who's guiding your way, a wisdom as ancient as the sky. Who came before us have passed on the flame, and we are the children of that light.” The music of Greenrose Faire brings a message of love and acceptance for all. Their unique style and sound crosses over genre borders with an appeal to music lovers of all ages.
About the band:
Greenrose Faire plays rousing Celtic folk rock with head-bobbing, toe-tapping rock feel. The Finnish sextet meshes mandolins and violin with rock drums and bass and symphonic synths, and spikes the rollicking attitude with the slightly ominous overtones of Finnish melancholy. Greenrose Faire sounds lively and modern but tugs at the nostalgia strings for the long-gone days of yore. The band has great fun on stage, and have played everywhere from corner pubs to concert halls; from intimate weddings to international festivals. Greenrose Faire host an annual Medieval Folk Festival in hometown, Tampere, Finland.
