North Georgia's EMERALD ROSE is a Celtic folk-rock band with a rich, original sound. Many of the band's musical themes draw from Celtic myth and legend, but their style is modern, upbeat and accessible, ranging from traditional jigs and reels to original folk rock and pop numbers. The four-man group has been playing and singing for over seven years, weaving their musical spell on audiences as diverse as Irish pubs and festivals, sci-fi conventions, and Hollywood cast parties. With influences ranging from the Chieftains to Jethro Tull, Emerald Rose blends unique and diverse songwriting, rich vocal harmonies, Celtic insrumentation (pennywhistle, Irish pipes, bodhran), and driving guitars to produce an energetic performance style that is exciting and entertaining.

Brian (Logan) Sullivan - vocals, guitar, mandola
Arthur Hinds - vocals, bodhran, guitar
Larry Morris - vocals, pennywhistle, percussion, uilleann pipes
Clyde Gilbert - vocals, bass, percussion

ZYDECO T began 5 years ago when Louisianan Bill Burbank (gtr, voc) got together with Atlanta Swamp Opera's Larry English (acc, voc) and began work. Early in 2000 the band really came together with the addition of veteran pro musicians Doug Landsburg (dr) and Joe Fleming (bs). The final kick comes from dance instructor Anthony Lewis (rb, voc) who drives the band with Creole shouts and percussive rhythm. At the Dance Vortex Festival, Birmingham's City Stages Fest, Atlanta Cajun Dance Association, Huntsville's Zydeco Cajun Connection, Asheville's Summer Concert series, South Florida's Fiesta Tropicale and venues all around Atlanta, the word is out: "This is one of the best Zydeco bands we've EVER heard!"
