FAIRY TALES DO COME TRUE!

You don't believe me? Listen to our new CD. We picked our favorite Irish Pub songs and timeless fairy tale filk music and tenderly recorded them on a CD. We lovingly mixed and mastered this album with all the Brobdingnagian passion we could muster. Then Andrew and I added a sweet tear drop to each recording to add that extra bit of love.

Once the CD was mailed to the printers, we threw our hands in the air and danced around the room laughing and dancing a jig. Our kilts bounced up high as we shouted out, "It's done! It's done! It's done" in unison. Then we grinned. It was good.

*sigh* :-)

Now that our part is done, we are ready to share it with you. To steal a phrase--this is fun for the whole family. There are some fun, clean Irish pub songs (they do exist!). We picked, found, and wrote some classic folk songs and filk music ("filk" is Fantasy/Sci Fi-based folk music) and recorded those as well.

You will hear songs from Peter S. Beagle's amazing novel, The Last Unicorn. I wrote a song based on the children's book, The Paperbag Princess, and another inspired by The Princess Bride. Then there's a parody of a Schoolhouse Rock song, a song that inspired the title of my solo album "Soul of a Harper" by fantasy authoress, Rie Sheridan.

And I'd be a fool not to mention that "The Jedi Drinking Song" is finally available on an album!

IRISH SONGS TOO?

Yup! We play Irish music. So there are a few drinking songs like "Old Dun Cow" and the popular "Lily the Pink". Then we cross geographic boundaries to give you a romantic folk song in Italian!

You will hear a parody inspired by Buffy the Vampire Slayer called "Angel's Lament" (written before Angel got his own TV show). Oh! Let's not forget we have a couple of live tracks that will leave you roaring in disbelief. (Godzuki? Geriatric what?) And who can forget that monstrous classic "Monster Mash".

Yes. It's all there and then some. You asked for these songs for the past three years. Well, you don't need to ask again. The album is done!

So close your eyes a moment and just imagine.

Imagine your glow of satisfaction when our CD arrives in the mail. You rip open the box and tenderly place it in your CD player.

Now you can relax and slip into bardic bliss. All your favorite songs from the last two years are now recorded. Don't you feel happy. And you thought it wouldn't happen. See!

MUSIC FIT FOR A FAIRY TALE

So grab your bow and arrows. Strap on your lightsaber, and hear the musical story of how you too can live happily ever after!

Because fairy tales do indeed come true.

Fractured!
Reminds me of Fractured Fairy Tales from the old Rocky and Bullwinkle show, except this is Fractured gone Ren!!

I laughed my bottom off, which just goes to show, don't listen to this CD at work unless you want people to give you really funny looks ;-)

The best Bards cd yet!!
Brobdingnagian Fairy Tales is a collection of what, in my opinion, are some of the Bards' best songs. From Jedi Drinking Song to Lily the Pink to Old Dun Cow, this cd will make you laugh and it will make you cry (but only because you're laughing really, really hard). So if you're a long-time Nagian, Brobdingnagian Fairy Tales is definitely worth adding to your collection. If you're new to the Bards, but you enjoy good music and hilarious lyrics, this cd (and this band) is right up your alley! And while you're at it, check out some of their other cds. They will not disappoint!

I love every song that these guys do. I have their CD's in the car, and just keep changing from one to the other.

Good solid fun!
I'd heard a few of these songs before, but they're some of my favorites: Angel's Lament, If I Had a Million Ducats, and Happily Ever After aren't getting old any time soon. :) I also fell instantly in love with Bog Down In the Valley, Exclamations, and Old Dun Cow, and Buttercup's Lament is absolutely beautiful. The crowning glory, though, was Frog Kissin'. I don't think I've laughed that hard in years; I was driving at the time, and I was laughing so hard I was crying and had to pull off the road (even my mom, who normally can't stand any music that's not Country, liked this one). As usual with my favorite Bard songs, it's all about the lyrics (although there's a lot to be said for the vocals and instrumentals, too, they're just not the best feature). :) I can just about guarantee there's something on here that will put a smile on anyone's face.

Wow! The Bards have done it again.
Wow! The Bards have done it again. Fairy tales in a Bard's world would OF COURSE include Jedi Drinking Song (one of my favorites). I've been playing this CD so much already, I can see that I'm going to have to get another copy.

Rie Sheridan

Another Awesome Album
Of course, I am a little prejudiced about "Soul of a Harper", but I think the whole album rocks. :) It finally provides fans with some of their favorites that have never before been available on CD. I'm buying copies for birthday presents! Keep up the good work, guys. I am proud to be a small part of it.

Bards provide surprising olfactory refreshment...
...that's right, olfaction. While listening to this lively harp, recorder, and mandolin medley one cannot help but smile a bit more, stick out one's chest, and take a big whiff of the green joviality that is our world filled with the acoustics of the Bards. Somehow, when listening to lyrics about booze, medicinal compounds, and leprechauns the atmosphere smells a bit better. It is my belief that this cd will improve your aerobic capabilities... that or make you hyperventilate.

Absolutely terrible (in a good way)
I only joined the ranks of these fans a few months ago, and resolved to buy the next CD they released, then from there go and collect the others in their collection. I loved it! Every song had some silly twist that made it awesome! The jedi drinking song, I must say in the least was a song that left me gasping for breath. Every song made you laugh, but there was one that left me saying terrible... absolutly terrible (in the way you do after a funny joke). I can't remember which one it is.... so I'll have to listen again! I reccomend this to anyone, and everyone. It's only terrible!

My son loves this CD
My 4 year old son loves this CD. Monster Mash and Lily the Pink are his favorites. I must admit that I'm a little partial to Old Dun Cow. I think I'll have to check out a few more of thier CDs. There truely aren't that many made that the whole family likes. Excellent job...
