UK fans

Are there any UK fans who joined in the Kickstarter campaign?

If so, have you received your CD yet?

I've got the download, but no CD yet.

Does anyone know if the band are likely to play the UK anytime soon?

The MG In Concert Program 1978

Finally got hold of one of these -- in fact, not one but two copies, would you believe it, from the same seller in separate transactions: a pristine one for the vault, and a slightly damaged/stained one to scan and photoshop for this presentation. 

I don't know the full details, but the images and text…

Sheet Music

For the last few years I kept remembering the book of Renaissance sheet music that I had before we moved house, and then, guess what? Was going through stuff in my parent's garage and there it was! I'll have to invest in a 12 string to do my justice to Mr Dunford's wonderful tunes.

Renaissance at the Fabulous Fox - 1977

I'm not a collector of ticket stubs, but I had to buy this one because of the home town connection: Atlanta's "Fabulous Fox" Theatre, a 5000-seat theater built in 1929, constructed initially as headquarters and mosque for…

What's in a (Domain) Name?

Check your browser's address bar: you are at renaissance-fanfare.net instead of prologue.ning.com.

The old address will continue to work indefinitely, so no worries about saved bookmarks or posted links etc.   Unfortunately, saved passwords will have to be re-saved by your browser. 

I'm still torn: is it worth changing names mid-course?  Or does the stronger and hosting platform independent "brand" identity help?  I'm leaning toward sticking with the new name, in case…

Poster Restoration

I REALLY like the Turn of the Cards album cover art: it's the logo, background image, and default profile image of this site.



There was a gorgeous promotional poster for the album back in the day -- two versions in fact, with different color hues. I have both, but they are not in a condition that would pass the Wife Acceptance Factor for wall art, no matter how high the memorabilia/collectible value.… Continue
