January 2017

First Treebeard show of the new year is at the Cremorne on London Road, Sheffield on Friday 20th January, ably supported by band members solo & side projects; Ceri's Follow The Moon, Paul Pearson & Friends and Rob Lowdon, 8 'til late, free admission. 

December 2016

We've demo'd some songs! Available here on our Soundcloud page. There's Fisherman's Blues from the Waterboys, Ceri's Helena's Handfasting, Losing My Religion from REM and my Stone and the Flute. We're working on a couple of Rob's and some other stage favourites - watch this space!

November 2016

Lots & lots of gigs this month, Red Deer (12th), Porter Cottage (20th), Maida Vale (25th), Forest (26th), Shakespeare Anti-Fracking Benefit (27th), then Haiti Benefit at St John's, Bamford (4th Dec) & DogFest, Black Market, Warsop (16th). That should break the new line-up in nicely! Sign up to our mailing list (above) or check out the gig guide.

October 2016

Danny (drums) is off at Huddersfield University studying sound engineering, Paul (bass, vocals) is concentrating on our original progressive rock band Haze and helping Cat (fiddle, mandolin) cope with two small children (hello Hazel & Lilly!), so have stepped back from Treebeard, leaving Ceri & myself to recruit good friends James (cahon), Rob (guitar, bass & vocals) & Paul (guitar, percussion & vocals) to keep the 'Heavy Wood' sound going!

Old(er) news:-

January 2015

Well we had a great trip to Italy with Haze in October, check out the pictures here. I'm starting to book dates for the rest of the year, plus seriously thinking about doing a new album with the new line-up, let me know if you've any favourite tracks that we've not recorded yet? Email me here.

August 2014

Blimey, no updates for a year! Of course it's not that there's nothing to report, simply I've been too busy to update this page! Danny is now established as full time permanent drummer with Treebeard, and we've been starting to think about whether it's time for a new CD. We're playing on the Folk Train on Tuesday 26th August, the Anglers Rest, Bamford on Friday 12th September and Rossington Beer Festival, Doncaster on Saturday 4th October.

June 2013

We're back at Chesters, Chesterfield this Saturday, this time with Danny from Haze & The Outlandish Knights on drums, so expect a harder rocking sound & maybe more originals than usual!

March 2013

The new Haze CD 'The Last Battle' is finally out! Available through Amazon and direct from us a Gabadon, we think it's great, but why not take a listen to some edits of tracks at Reverbnation.

Feb 2013 

Paul Chisnell announced his retirement from performing, due to increasingly bad tinnitus. His replacement in Haze & The Outlandish Knights is Danny McMahon. We're still working on the best direction to take Treebeard, but for now Trev from Jabberwocky & Broadsword will be playing percussion with us & we have our first public gig in a while at Chesters, Sheffield Road, Chesterfield this Saturday 16th February. Be nice to see a few of you there!

Jan 2013

been a bit quiet on the gigging front, Paul & Cat had a baby girl Hazel in November & I've been busy finishing off the new Haze CD "The Last Battle" out 25 March 2013, but we'll be back with Haze, Treebeard & The Outlandish Knights gigs very soon!
