"Die Meisterbarden von Bree" play any kind of music from the last 200 years, like many other bands too. But, as far as we know, we are currently the biggest band playing in lotro with up to 18 bards on the stage and 8 cheerleaders for the sideshow. For about 6 years we were performing EVERY friday on Vanyar. (For exact times please check http://lotroartists.com)
Besides, we are known for the cute little hobbit lasses dancing and doing fireworks next to the band. The Fidels are 9 hobbit girls usually dressed in rainbow colors. They do some synchronized line dance next to the band and throw petals at the audience, from time to time they start colorful fireworks to support the show.
This years it's the third time we participate at Weatherstock and it's always a pleasure to be a part of the show.
