This album is a good mix. It almost makes you smell the meat on a stick and hear the merchants hawking their wares. I didn’t like all of the songs, but I didn’t expect to. There’s just some faire music I’m not into, but that didn’t change the over great quality of what is offered. Whether you like instrumental Celtic music, bawdy bardic style party tunes, or ethereal choral offerings this recording has got them all. The comedic interludes were good as well but I after a couple of plays I tended to skip them. They certainly added to the Faire flavor of the overall composition by recalling the comedy and variety shows that are renaissance faire standards throughout this country and probably others as well. Overall a very well put together album. I would give it 4 ½ out 5 tankards of mead.


Take Faire home with you...Legally
Renaissance Festival Podcast Compilation CD
Marc Gunn chose a great selection of artists/songs/bits to put together! It’s like going to faire and seeing all the music acts in one day! A little bit of seriousness, a few pirates, and a good dose of laughter. From the silliness of “Never Marry a Mermaid” and “The Pudding Song” to the Classical sounds of “Nancy” and Vince Conaway’s “Cantiga”, there’s something for everyone. Mixed in among the music are several bits sure to bring a giggle, including the ad for “PlagueAway: The Pestilence Potion”. Having only embrace my inner Scottish Lass/Rennie/Wench in the past year, my faire experience has been pretty limited. This CD, and the Renaissance Festival Podcast itself have introduced me to tons of musicians and acts that I’m looking forward to seeing in my travels! The CD is an awesome addition to any Rennie’s collection! Order yours now… you know you want to!


The music gathered together here is the best I’ve heard in a long time. From the tight A capella harmonies heard in “Nancy”, to the lament of “For My Grandfathers”. And things are kept lively with “Bedlam Boys” and the instrumentals of “Cantiga”, and “Hobbit’s Dance”.

Not all the pieces are serious “Never Marry a Mermaid”, and “The Pudding Song” are great examples of the kind of fun to be had, and heard at a renaissance festival, and of course there are also the advertisements from Crazy Leo (have you gotten your indulgences yet?), and in case you find yourself coming down with the plague you can get some PlagueAway to take care of it.

Listening to this was like wondering through a faire you never knew just what was going to be heard around the next bend, or from the wandering minstrels winding their way through the crowd. This will bring back fond memories of a weekend spent surrounded in bright colors, much laughter, great food, and most of all great music.

I heartedly recommend getting your copy of this album to enjoy on those long winter nights, between the fairs.

For a musical experience that is as diverse as the local faires themselves, look no further than this compilation CD. This sampling has been selected from among the performers who have appeared on the bi-monthly Renaissance Festival Podcast, which can be listened to or downloaded from The podcast features music and comedy from various artists who are performing at local faires across the U.S. in any given month. Listeners may be delighted by some of their favorite performers, or they may be introduced to a new favorite, but one thing is certain: they will enjoy the variety offered on the 23-track compilation CD.

The CD features standout performances that span the width and breadth of RenFaires, including a sampling of Irish and English folk music, sea shanties, and madrigal harmonies, as well as traditional faire songs and humor.

Faire enthusiasts can recapture a bit of the magic of their local faire by replaying the Renaissance Festival Podcast Compilation CD, or by tuning in to the podcast online.

Scott Wooldridge

An eclectic mix of medieval music
This is a great mix of songs from some very talented artists. Many different genres are included in this mix. It is a great mix of folk, celtic, instrumental, rock, a cappella, and spoken word comedy. There is something in this CD for everyone. From the zany to the maudlin, from the raw to the beautiful, it is sure to please.
A few notables; Marc Gunn of the Brobdingnagian Bards has a few solo works on this; The Bedlam Bards are raucous as always; Seymoure with his randy pudding song; and The Tenpenny Travelers with a great rendition of Dapper Dan. A wonderful time will be had by all.

Terry Griffith

A great collection. I'm proud to be a part. See you at the faire.

Richard Blackbird

This was a totally enjoyable compilation which brought smiles to my face and an occasional tear to my eye. I can't recommend it highly enough. Buy It if you don't already have it and if you don't what's wrong with you

Matt H

Magic, mystery, and mayhem. These three words best describe my experience of both renaissance festivals and this CD. The first track begins the mayhem with a wonderful jab at indulgences. From that commercial I knew that this was going to fun. Several other humorous tracks are included, but this compilation is certainly not a novelty recording. If one is looking for the highly polished, overdubbed, synthetic music, then look elsewhere. This is music in the raw. Sweet blended harmonies "High Barbaree"; songs that move your feet, "Dapper Dan" and "Hobbit's Dance"; tongue-twisting, rapid fire lyrics "Mary Mac"; songs of mirth "Never Marry a Mermaid" ;songs of longing "For My Grandfathers" and the sweet sorrow of farewell "The Faire Is Over".... the tracks are as diverse as life itself. And that is the greatest attribute of this album. So grab yourself a pint of root beer, a turkey leg or two, or, if you happen to have a serving wench, send her, and enjoy the experience.

Great Collection
This is a wonderful new compilation CD from Marc Gunn at the Renaissance Festival Podcast. Things get started with the hard-hitting Bedlam Boys by the Bedlam Bards followed by Bramblebush with the fast-paced Mary Mac. You have the wonderful harmonies of Bounding Main on High Barbaree to help satisfy that pirate in all of us. New recording artist Thyme Awaye does a great job with Highland Harry. For those that like the hammered dulcimer, Cantiga by Vince Conaway is a must.

From the humorours Pudding Song, to the soulful Nancy, there is something in this collection for anyone that is a fan of the music heard at Renaissance Festivals.


A little slice of Faire at home
The Renaissance Festival Pod cast Compilation CD is like bringing a slice of the Renn Faire with you where ever you go. Not only is it full of great songs, but also has a few comedy bits in there as well that brings the chance encounters of the rogues that you will run into at most Renn Faires. The opening bit, "Crazy Leo's Indulgences" had me laughing from the start. While most of the other songs on the Cd were ensuring that my toes were tapping and my hands clapping, I would say my favorite track on the CD was "Crazy Leo's Indulgences" by Terry Griffith, which I must admit nigh brought a tear to my eye. I thoroughly enjoyed this CD and would whole-heartedly recommend it to someone who yearns for a slice of Faire to have on call when ever.
