Back on Elfia, after a long time: The Dolmen

Back on Elfia, after a long time: The Dolmen

The Dolmen are a five piece gig-hardened group of pagan rebel-rousers from the mystical island of Portland on south coast of Britain, founded by front man Taloch Jameson in 1993. Their name is taken from the ancient monolithic groupings of stones, dolmen, found throughout the world. Dolmen are normally made of 3 upright stones supporting a single large capstone, or as at Stonehenge, two giant pillars and a capstone. Some would concur that these earliest structures were not only burial tombs but also a social meeting place. Many also believe they are magical and the remaining home of the Fae.
These days, the band’s talents are recognised far and wide, not only in their native UK, but also on the Continent, where they perform on some of the biggest European stages. Never tied down or pigeonholed, they remain the original Pagan shape-shifters of Celtic Rock, chameleon-like, multi-faceted and with a pumping rhythm, as fresh in their approach today as ever they were. The Dolmen are still as down to earth as their audience, their songs capturing the realities of the common man. Open to the world, their music is carried into the future by those who have come to know and love the simplicity and honest raw energy that pulsates from The Dolmen stage performances and from their captivating melodies. 
All songs are self-written with some traditional Celtic Ballads thrown in for good measure. The strength of The Dolmen is in its pure organic feel. To be able to react spontaneously to the way that the mood and the spirit takes you when on the stage. To be one with the audience. The band in 2017 comprises, Taloch Jameson, Guitars and vocals. Josh Elliott, Electric guitars, harmonica, banjo, whistles, vocals. Kayleigh Marchant, Bass guitar, flute, vocals. Chris Jones, Drums. Anja Novotny Flutes & whistles
