We are Arise & Go, a Celtic trio from Ithaca, NY, and we're recording our debut album of Scottish, Irish, and French-Canadian music. We've been working on new material and we're so excited to record it and share the process with you through this Kickstarter campaign!
With our producer Keith Murphy we will travel to Dimension Sound Studios in Boston to record a high-quality album. Funds from this Kickstarter will help us cover the costs of the project which include recording, mixing, mastering, production and promotion. This album will help us to reach new audiences, and take us to the next stage of our career as a band. Your support is critical and we really appreciate your being a part of this project with us!
We met several years ago at Irish music sessions in Ithaca, and formed Arise & Go in the fall of 2016. Each of us comes from a different Celtic music background, and the combination of our styles is what gives Arise & Go its unique sound.
Ellie Goud (fiddle) grew up in Saint John, New Brunswick, Canada steeped in Scottish, Acadian, Quebecois and Cape Breton music and culture.
Michael Roddy (border pipes, small pipes, uilleann pipes, whistles) is from Utica, NY and has spent over 20 years performing the music of Ireland and Scotland as a soloist and in pipe bands throughout the northeast and Canada.
Tim Ball (guitar, foot percussion) grew up in Watkins Glen, NY and has immersed himself in the New England contra dance and fiddle traditions, as well as the Irish musical styles of New York and County Sligo.
Thanks for your consideration and support!
