Band Leaders and Band Members: What band are you a member of?:
Minstrels of Middle Earth

Band Leaders: Please give us some details so that we can promote your performance! Does your band perform regularly? Have you performed at Weatherstock before? Please supply details here.:
Tinfaang is the leader and concert director of our band, the Minstrels of Middle Earth. We do not perform regularly throughout the year, but are known for playing especially during festivals to provide musical and theatrical entertainment and ambiance for passersby engaged in the festivities - and also having the means and wherewithal, known only to us, to do so continuously for days each time (and regardless of the severity of lag withal).

Our performances usually feature classical music and are typically period and roleplay appropriate. Some may remember our signature concert, the 'Songs of the Third Age', where, interspersed with roleplay and acting, most of the songs and poetry in the Lord of the Rings books were also featured and set to music over a three and a half hour concert.

We have not performed at Weatherstock before. But we have planned a special Nazgul-themed concert at Weatherstock, should we be selected to play at the summit. We desire to keep it a surprise how the Nazgul will feature in our concert, but our performance will contain elements of acting, theatrics and of course epic music from the movies and some other surprises. We have already rehearsed our concert program and have timed its duration at close to fourteen minutes and forty seconds, which fits the allotted time given for each band.

We believe our performance will be most apropos for the locale and occasion given the famed account of the Skirmish on Weathertop between the Hobbits and the Nazgul as recounted in the Fellowship of the Ring. Furthermore, as this event is Weatherstock XIII, the number thirteen has ominous and foreboding connotations which, by serendipity, also fits our Nazgul-themed performance. Therefore, we humbly submit our concert piece for consideration by the Weatherstock organizers for performance at the Weatherstock summit.

Each band will be responsible for Checking This Site REGULARLY for News and Updates. Bandleaders agree to log-in on Landroval weekly to check in-game mail prior to the event.

Bands can play at the WCS only, at the Summit only, or at both venues. Summit participation will be limited to 20 bands this year.
