Brobdingnagian Bards

Archived Bio. Not part of the current Performer list.

The Brobdingnagian Bards (pronounced brAHb'ding-näg-EE-en) hail from Austin, Texas. They take traditional Irish and Scottish folk songs, mix it up with Lord of the Rings music to create a unique brand of Celtic Filk.

And when they say "unique," believe it! How many bands do YOU know that play autoharp, recorder, and mandolin...while wearing KILTS?!

The Bards (or if you're from Chicago "Da Bards!") were voted the #1 Best Folk Band in the 2007-8 Austin Music Awards. They are the "Godfathers of Celtic MP3s." Over five million MP3s have been downloaded by their fans online.

After going their seperate ways in 2008, they were called back to do a reunion show at Dragon Con in 2010 and 2013-2017. After popular demand, they are back to perform not just one show but many over the entire weekend.

But wait there's more!

The Brobdingnagian Bards music will touch your Scotch-Irish heritage with traditional Celtic songs and contemporary parodies. It's a musical experience that shouldn't be missed. So visit them online, get a free "Real Men Wear Kilts" sticker. And laugh your arse off to a musical experience that will leave you glowing for more... without the radiation poisoning.
