Tolkien's "Middle-earth" may have sounded. Taking clues from descriptions of music and culture in "The Book of Lost Tales," "The Hobbit" and "The Lord of The Rings," The Fellowship began to reconstruct Tolkien's "ancient" cultures. After years of research, they began recording on Boxing Day of 1998, a journey that would take them more than seven years. The results of their labour, IN ELVEN LANDS is the fully realised music of an ancient, lost civilization.
The Fellowship performs on an all-acoustic array of ancient and modern instruments that includes harp, lute, hurdy-gurdy, krumhorn and gong. Their international cast of singers deliver stunning performances using dialects of Sindarin, Quenya, Anglo-Saxon and Modern English. The Fellowship's songs are all drawn from aspects of J.R.R. Tolkien's myths of Middle-earth.
The first edition of their album "IN ELVEN LANDS" featured vocals of Jon Anderson. For the digitally remastered Second Edition, Jon Anderson is absent. The Second Edition features previously unreleased material and several entirely new performances, including J.R.R. Tolkien's original song "Namárië", plus an entirely new song with lyrics by the noted Tolkien linguist Helge Kåre Fauskanger.

Unfortunately, due to many member changes and complications they have had trouble getting to where they should be. However 2010 brings a steady solid lineup that is here to stay with Ken Taylor on Vocals, Andrew Eichinger on Guitar, Andrew Dicamillo on Bass, and Ryan Locke on Drums.
The New Year also brings the online release of their heavily awaited debut EP “The Obelisk” Parts 1 & 2. Look for these dudes in a town near you sometime this year. 3) Formed in 2011, The Fellowship consists of the members that appear on Guthrie Govan's first release, "Erotic Cakes" with the addition of saxophonist Zak Barrett. The Fellowship plays at the Bassment club in Chelmsford, Essex, every Thursday night and has done so for several years.
