    [EVENT] Bards Day Concert, Monday September 2nd



    A day to remember the bards of old and the music they inspired. Welcome to a concert at the Ivy Bush Inn!

    Date: Monday September 2nd, 2013
    Time: 7:30 PM UK (2:30 PM servertime)
    Location: Ivy Bush Inn, Hobbiton, Laurelin server

    Event details:
    A day to remember the writers of the tales, poems and songs we treasure today. A concert with a selection of tunes related to one of the finest writers we have seen, master Ronald Dwale.

    The Brandy Badgers will perform a selection of songs based on the works of master Dwale. All are welcome to come to attend the concert: hobbits, dwarves, elves and men.

    OOC details:
    J.R.R. Tolkien passed away September 2nd 1973. We’ll pay homage to him with a concert in the Ivy Bush, playing tunes inspired by Tolkien’s works (from the movies or adapted from his writings and poems).

    The concert is performed by The Brandy Badgers, the in-house music collective in the Grand Order of the Lost Mathom. Given the concert theme and the date, this is not a strict roleplaying event, so players of all sizes and shapes are welcome. However, we will stay in-character: Instead of speaking about Tolkien, the musicians will play songs inspired by Ronald Dwale, Tolkien’s in-game alter ego.

    Although there would be many lore reasons to have the concert in the Bird and Baby, the inn is somewhat unsuitable for concerts. So we’ve moved to the Ivy Bush instead.

    The concert should last approximately one hour. Afterwards, the stage is open for anyone who would like to play a tune suitable for such an event.

    Welcome to the Ivy Bush Monday September 2nd!

    Oh, and here is a video we made based on one of the songs we performed at last year's concert. We didn't have the vocals in-game, though *smiles*

    The concert is tomorrow! All are welcome who would like to enjoy a night of celebration of master Ronald Dwale's works. The format of the evening is as follows:

    The Brandy Badgers will play for an hour plus at the start. There will be songs for dwarves, elves, men, and indeed hobbits, most based on Tolkien's poems.

    After this, the stage will be open for others who want to play a suitable tune or two for the night. Some have signed up already in advance, so we'll start off with them (and others who sign up before the show starts).

    Welcome to the Ivy Bush, 7:30PM UK/BST (2:30PM servertime)!

    Oh, and here is another of our music videos to get yer all going. The song will be performed tomorrow, albeit possibly in a different version than this *smiles*
