Greetings to the Universe!

We are Tuatha Dea! For those of you who don't know the story, we are first and foremost a family, a tribe. A group of people united by blood, marriage and friendship who would be together in some dysfunctional fashion whether the band existed or not. It all started with drums... Rhythm, the universal catalyst for unification. We tripped across it in 2009 when we started playing together for fun and our local community. When we began creating music we had no idea where it would take us. We have been blessed and fortunate that the eclectic blend of cultures and perspectives within our own clan have been so well received and reflected within the greater universal community. As a result, the past two and a half years has been amazing and we thank you all for integrating our ever evolving troop of minstrels into a constantly expanding human tribe.

Our amazing journey has allowed us the incredible opportunity of meeting and playing with some of the most awesome people and musicians in the world. We have decided to embrace that gift and our current project and goal is the creation of a collaborative CD that includes the talents of some of the wonderful groups and folks we have been honored and privileged to work with. This musical effort includes the talents and energy of Spiral Rhythm, Wendy Rule, Murphey's Midnight Rounders, Celia, Damh the Bard and others. We are writing and creating each song with commitments from members of these wonderful groups to produce a musical experience that will hopefully reflect our ideal of community through unity and further express our infinite gratitude to our worldwide tribal family for allowing us a space and place in your hearts.

We need your help to make this happen. The process of creating a CD is an expensive venture. While the process has begun, we humbly call upon our friends, fans and family within our human tribe to help us complete the project and make it a reality. The goal is to raise $6,000.00 in 45 days and to have the project completed by May of 2013. The groups and individuals we have listed are on board and are offering their time and energy to the project. We are committed to making it happen. We need your help, whether it be a small donation or large to insure that this CD "The Tribe" is completed. We do not expect something for nothing. The tribal community should benefit all and so we have opted to use The Kickstarter program which means your contributions are rewarded with everything we as simple musicians have to offer from mp3 downloads to physical CD's to African Drums. Please see the contribution list provided by Kickstarter for the details. WE CAN NOT COMPLETE THIS EFFORT WITHOUT YOU. Kickstarter is an "all or nothing" effort. We must reach the goal within the allotted time to receive the financial support. PLEASE help us make this a reality. To you all, our eternal thanks for letting us be a part of your Tribe. Peace, Love and Rhythm.



Yours in service and gratitude
Tuatha Dea

Risks and challenges

With any musical project, we expect the random surprises to crop up along the way and know full well we can overcome them. We do not foresee any major setbacks or delays, but we are prepared just in case.

We would ask you for your patience if anything crops up, and we will keep you abreast of anything of this nature, since it is your hard earned money that is making this happen.

We humbly thank you and appreciate you more than you can know.
