    A day to remember the bards of old and the music they inspired. Welcome to the annual Bards Day Concert in the Ivy Bush Inn!

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

    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 and poems based on the works of master Dwale. Afterwards, the stage will be open for other bards who would like to share suitable works for the occasion.

    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. As we have for the last years, we’ll pay homage to him with an evening of music and poetry in the Ivy Bush, playing tunes inspired by Tolkien’s works (from the movies or adapted from his writings and poems) and reciting some of Tolkien's poems. The main part of 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 have moved to the Ivy Bush instead.

    The Badgers will perform for ca 90 minutes. Afterwards, the stage is open for anyone who would like to play a tune or recite a poem suitable for such an event.

    Welcome to the Ivy Bush, Friday September 2nd!
