ALL GOOD THINGS . . .

MERRY CHRISTMAS 
AND A HAPPY NEW YEAR!

DEAR FRIENDS,

HOW ARE YOU? I HOPE YOU ALL GET TO SPEND A FEW DAYS WITH YOUR LOVED ONES.

2018 WAS A RATHER QUIET YEAR FOR BEYOND THE FIELDS.

AS ALWAYS, OUR BAND MEMBERS PLAYED, RECORDED AND TOURED WITH VARIOUS OTHER BANDS AND PROJECTS.

MYSELF, I GRABBED THE OPPORTUNITY AND FOLLOWED ANOTHER CHILDHOOD DREAM OF MINE BY VISITING THE TEMPLES, TOMBS AND PYRAMIDS OF ANCIENT EGYPT!

HOPEFULLY WE'LL FIND MORE TIME IN 2019 TO WRITE, ARRANGE, PLAY AND RECORD WITH BEYOND THE FIELDS AS WELL.

STADTFEST BISCHOFSZELL 2019

ANY NEW LIVE DATES I CAN TELL YOU ABOUT ALREADY? WELL, I'M HAPPY TO ANNOUNCE THAT WE GET YET ANOTHER CHANCE TO PLAY IN THE STREETS OF THE MEDIEVAL OLD TOWN OF THE CITY MY BROTHER AND I GREW UP IN. TWO WRONGS DON'T MAKE A RIGHT, OR WHAT'S THAT OLD PROVERB WITH A THREE AND CHARM IN IT?

SO WHAT'S THIS YEAR'S CHRISTMAS PRESENT FROM US? WELL, HOW ABOUT SOME CLOSE-UP FOOTAGE OF LAST YEAR'S PADDY'S DAY CELEBRATION?

WISHING YOU ALL GOOD HEALTH AND A SPECTACULAR 2019 . . .

MERRY CHRISTMAS
AND A HAPPY NEW YEAR!

ANDRE

A NEW BEGINNING . . .

MERRY CHRISTMAS 
AND A HAPPY NEW YEAR!

DEAR FRIENDS,

WHETHER YOU'VE BEEN NAUGHTY OR NICE, I HOPE YOU ALL HAD A GOOD YEAR!

MINE WAS BITTERSWEET. ON THE ONE HAND, I HAD MY FIRST REAL HOLIDAYS IN 17 YEARS. MADE IT DOWN TO VENICE, FLORENCE, ROME AND POMPEII, TAKING IN ALL THAT WONDERFUL ART OF CENTURIES PAST. A CHILDHOOD DREAM COME TRUE.

BEYOND THE FIELDS RECORDED AND RELEASED TWO OFFICIAL LIVE VIDEOS, INCLUDING A REALLY NICE VERSION OF ALISTAIR HULETT'S
"BLUE MURDER", IF I MAY SAY SO MYSELF.

"THE CANTERBURY TALES PART 1: THE TRAVELER'S LAMENT"
"BLUE MURDER"

Beyond the Fields 2017

ON THE OTHER HAND, I HAD TO LEARN THAT I HAVE PERMANENT DAMAGE TO BOTH OF MY HANDS NOW, SOME 20 YEARS TOO SOON, IT SEEMS, AND THERE'S NOTHING I CAN DO ABOUT IT. THIS WILL CERTAINLY NOT KEEP ME FROM WRITING OR PLAYING MUSIC, NOT AS LONG AS I BREATHE, BUT THE CONSTANT PAIN SURE SUCKS.

ANYWAYS, HIGH TIME FOR THIS YEAR'S CHRISTMAS PRESENT. HERE'S "THIS MORNING UP IN HEAVEN", RECORDED LIVE AT OUR 2016 ACOUSTIC SHOW AT THE LION.

LOOKING FORWARD TO PLAYING FOR YOU LIVE AGAIN IN 2018 . . .

MERRY CHRISTMAS
AND A HAPPY NEW YEAR!

BLUE MURDER (LIVE 2017)

Blue Murder 2017

DEAR FRIENDS,

BEYOND THE FIELDS ARE THRILLED TO SHARE YET ANOTHER OFFICIAL LIVE VIDEO WITH YOU ALL. THIS TIME IT'S ALISTAIR HULETT'S "BLUE MURDER"!

OUR HOMAGE TO ONE OF SCOTLAND'S FINEST FOLK MUSICIANS WAS RECORDED AT THIS YEAR'S TRADITIONAL GRABENHALLE IRISH NIGHT IN ST. GALLEN, SWITZERLAND, ONCE AGAIN MIXED BY EDDY SLOOF AND FILMED BY METUNAR.

Alistair Hulett

FOR THOSE WHO AREN'T TOO FAMILIAR WITH ALISTAIR HULETT (1951 - 2010), HE WAS BORN AND RAISED IN SCOTLAND BUT SPENT HALF OF HIS LIFE IN AUSTRALIA. HE MADE A NAME FOR HIMSELF BOTH AS A SOLO ARTIST AND AS THE LEAD SINGER OF LEGENDARY AUSTRALIAN FOLK ROCK BAND ROARING JACK.

APART FROM BEING A GIFTED SINGER/SONGWRITER, ALISTAIR WAS A COMMITTED SOCIALIST AND A DEDICATED POLITICAL AND COMMUNITY ACTIVIST. HE CONSEQUENTLY USED HIS ART TRYING TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE, TO FIGHT INJUSTICE AND EXPLOITATION WHEREVER HE COULD.

"BLUE MURDER" WAS ONE OF TWO SONGS HE WROTE ABOUT THE SUFFERING OF THOSE WHO WORKED IN THE BLUE ASBESTOS MINE IN WITTENOOM, WESTERN AUSTRALIA. COUNTLESS MINERS AND THEIR FAMILIES WHO PAID WITH THEIR HEALTH AND LIVES AFTER BEING EXPOSED TO LETHAL ASBESTOS FIBRES, A HEALTH HAZARD WELL KNOWN TO THOSE WHO RAN THE MINE.

WISHING YOU ALL GOOD HEALTH
AND A WONDERFUL SUMMER!
