We are Starlight - we are not golden!
Mostly made up of Calanne and her musical slaves: twin brother Calhil, little brother Caloon, and this funny little hobbit Losagal who reckons himself the main attraction. In the beginning, it was just Calanne and Calhil playing strangely haunting duos with lute and drums. Then Caloon followed them to Bree with his horn. The 3 of them became a familiar sight around Bree, which is when Losagal started following them around bringing with him a cloud of pipeweed and the aroma of stale bread and old ale, muttering things such as 'wow man, that's outta space'. He impressed them with his lute skills and serious stare, so eventually he was invited to join the band leaving Calanne free to play with her bagpipes. Now, they regularly have guest musicians from 'Under the Sunlit Sky' or 'Bara Bahau' to enable a fuller sound, and recently tore Bree apart with an hour of 'The Doors'. They play for free, but will always happily except a free drink or 10! Starlight mostly play gothic, industrial, glam, progressive or new age rock, with occasional experiments in Drum and Bass or garage music.
