We were LIVE!  Twice!  Enjoy!

 Hmm, for some reason the video itself keeps disappearing from the story.  Well, here's the link for it:  Our 2nd Live Stream Concert 

 Here's the recording of our first Live Video.  Enjoy!

 
 NEW REWARDS!

Hello everyone!  If you are new to this KS project, you'll find more about the band below.  But we have an important announcement:  Two new rewards!

  •  At the $250 level, we have GUITAR LESSONS with our very own Gustavo!  For beginners to advanced students, "Fofão" will meet with you online for 4 lessons--one per week--to increase your mad skillz.  Don't believe it?  Just watch.

This can be you!  AND you get a copy of the new album, too!

At the $80 level, we have a great accessory for your new Celtic music album: a hand made kilt!  These are sewn by a friend of the band and are cotton/poly, for our warmer-than-Scotland climate.  Only available in the USA.  The band will hand carry them from Brazil and send them out on the tour.


At the $30 level, we have something completely new and different: DRAGONS!  Our friend in Brazil makes wonderful, whimsical, and quite fierce dragons, and has offered to make 6 of them for our project!  Here is Mariana's personal dragon, so you can see how awesome they are.  EDIT:  These are all gone--thanks to everyone who grabbed them up!

RAWR... I mean, Hello good Sir Knight!  Relax, nothing dangerous around here!

What is Banda Taverna?

We are a Celtic medieval folk band from Brazil. Five people that got together in 2012 to make music that takes the public to a fantasy universe of Kings, faeries and castles. . . And now we are recording our first album! It will be our first great work, gathering all the research and historic inspiration played in traditional medieval and Irish instruments like the Celtic harp, hurdy gurdy, Irish banjo, whistle, bodhran,  accordion, Uillean pipes and many more. 

In 2018 we won a travel grant from the government of our country, to play at the Utah Renaissance Faire.  On that trip, we were invited to make a whole month´s tour in the United States and Canada!   We are so excited to send off our first album with a tour in the Northern Hemisphere.

There is a hero in each one of us...
There is a hero in each one of us...

We believe that our music changes people, that it brings out the hero and living adventurer in each person. As kids we dreamed of bringing our fantasy world to reality.  This will come to life in this first album and tour.  We hope you will be part of it!

Great memories of an unforgettable concert!

 Why Kickstarter?

As independent musicians, we don't have a music studio paying for the costs of making an album, or going on tour.  And we like it that way!  But it does make things tricky, because all the expenses have to be paid long before we bring in any earnings.  

We have a great 5 week tour planned for the US and Canada this fall!  We have held a local crowdfunding project here in Brazil, and we're working with sponsors, and doing all sorts of other things to raise money for our travel.  And we also need merch, to share with all the new friends we'll meet!   We're hoping that this Kickstarter campaign will raise enough to cover all our manufacturing costs for CDs and T-shirts, which will be made in the US and ready for us when we arrive.

We need heroes!
We need heroes!

What will YOU get out of this project? 

No adventure in complete until we find treasures, right?  Supporting heroes and heroines on our project will be greatly rewarded! Posters, CDs, T-Shirts, Skype concerts....The greater your boldness, the bigger the reward! ! 

We  are so glad to share our music with the world!  Naturally, a copy of the album is the first reward.  We'll offer it as a CD or a digital  download, whichever you prefer. 

Official US / Canada Tour T-Shirt
Official US / Canada Tour T-Shirt

We'll have our T-shirt, too, which commemorates our first international tour.  And a chance to meet the band and enjoy a private performance, either on Skype or live.  And for something super special, we are ready to compose, for you, your very own Celtic song.

Risks and challenges

We feel confident about the risks and challenges ahead. Our first North American tour is nearly booked (and quite full!), so we are sure to meet new friends and share our music and joy with them. We have researched the costs and have asked only for what we need. And we have plenty of material to record--even a few original songs--so we are eager to get in the studio!

Our Budget:

Cost to produce 1000 CDs: $1129
Cost to produce 200 T-shirts: $1400
Envelopes and shipping supplies $100
Fees from Kickstarter and credit cards $263
TOTAL $2892

And because there's always something unexpected--we round it up to $3000.
