Tempest celebrates their thirty years as a band with an exciting new album, "Thirty Little Turns". Thirty years is a milestone for any band to reach. Yet, Tempest continues to bring their brand of electric folk and Celtic music to enthusiastic audiences. Tempest music is a vibrant, living and breathing demonstration of tales old and new.

Two songs bring us stories from the Jacobite Rebellion — the long, bloody attempt to return the British throne to the House Of Stuart. "Johnny Cope" is a based on a traditional Scottish song from the 1745 Rebellion, that tells of the British commander's defeat at the hands of Bonnie Prince Charlie's Jacobite army near the end of the conflict. "Battle Of Aughrim" goes back to one of the bloodiest battles of the rebellion which brought about the end of Jacobitism in Ireland.

"Thirty Little Birds" celebrates the many fans and fortunes of Tempest throughout their thirty years together, name-checking many they have met and count as friends to this day.
