The Original Celtic Renaissance

Brobdingnagian Bards



Funny Irish Music... Over Six Million Celtic MP3s Served!

Brobdingnagian Bards (pronounced brob-din-nahg-EE-en) are The Original Celtic Renaissance music duo. They take traditional Irish and Scottish songs and give them a comedic twist. Their unique brand of music on the autoharp, recorder, and mandolin put Austin, Texas on the Celtic music map and made them one of the most-popular Celtic groups online.

Starting in 1999, Brobdingnagian Bards performed coast-to-coast, and in a given month were at a Lord of the Rings Oscar Party, a Celtic festival, or a Science Fiction Convention. However, they were an legendary favorite at Renaissance Faires where they added high-energy and wit to make every show a memorable experience.

The band officially parted ways in 2008, reuniting for occasional concerts. But it was 2018 when these innovators of the Celtic MP3 relaunched their band using Patreon like a record label. This allows them to reunite the Nagians and release all new music!
