After a successful IndieGoGo campaign, Tuatha Dea is once again in the studio recording their 5th Full-Length album, Kilts & Corsets. The band is currently recording at Lakeside Studios in Knoxville, TN with Grammy-Nominated Producer, Travis Wyrick. Expected to be released in early June, the band is giving you exclusive behind-the-scenes video of the recording process!
In late November, 2016, a great fire swept through the Great Smoky Mountains, destroying countless acres of land, many local businesses and homes, and displacing thousands of individuals. During this time, the band members found themselves, like so many others, confined to a hotel unable to return home to find out what awaited them after being evacuated as the fires moved closer and closer into the town. Tuatha Dea proudly calls Gatlinburg, Tennessee home, and the mountains in the area have provided not only solace and comfort to them over the years, but inspiration as well. In the heartbreak and fear that lingered with them during this time, inspiration struck in the form of a song, and in the hopes that the song could bring some comfort to those affected.
Within days, a Mountain Benefit Concert was organized at the Hard Rock Cafe in Pigeon Forge, TN, and Tuatha Dea was asked to perform. See their first live performance of “Appalachia Burning” below.

What is the Green Album?
It’s a musical plan of action.
An Independent musical compilation created by a consortium of like-minded Muses, Musicians and Songbirds from all over uniting as a global Tribe to raise awareness, celebrate and give something back to Mother Earth!
All these amazing artists will be offering one gift of song, either NEW or never-before-released, specifically for this album and themed toward the universal concept of “Green”!
All of the Artists have joined together and 25% from EVERY album sold by the collaborators will be donated to the Rainforest Trust, a fantastic organization who truly represents the ideals of the artists and the album!
The Album is currently in the making and is set to be released and available for the first time during Caldera Fest in Georgia, May 2016. More details to be revealed soon! Check in regularly as we will be updating you about this Magical, musical collaboration as it develops!

Tuatha Dea is once again hard at work shooting their final video of the Tufa Trilogy of songs, “Hum and the Shiver”. The song is part of their latest album, “Tufa Tales: Appalachian Fae” (available in the music store above), itself based upon Alex Bledsoe’s Tufa trilogy. The video will be wrapped in the coming weeks, but in the mean time, as has become customary of the band, enjoy a behind-the-scenes look at the band during the shoot!
On March 25, 2015, Tuatha Dea performed at the regional finals for the 2015 Hard Rock Rising. Against fierce competition, the band brought their full energy and passion to the stage and won the Battle, winning a cash prize, 10 hours of recording time at SoKnox Studios in Knoxville, TN and a chance to perform in Barcelona, Spain!
Over the coming weeks, executives from television networks and record companies will be reviewing the winners of the regional competitions and selecting 9 finalists to perform in a final battle in Barcelona, Spain.
