The Original Celtic Renaissance

The Brobdingnagian Bards

Brobdingnagian Bards at Dragon Con

Dragon Con is America's largest convention of Science Fiction, fantasy and horror, comics and art, games and computers, animation, science, music, television and films. There are tens of thousands of people who attend the convention each year.

The Brobdingnagian Bards (pron. brAHb'ding-näg-EE-en) are The Original Celtic Renaissance music duo from Austin, Texas. They were voted the #1 Novelty Band in the 2004 Austin Music Awards, Best "None of the Above" in 2006 and Best Folk Band in 2007. They creatively combine traditional Scotch-Irish songs with Sci Fi Fantasy music to create an inspired evening of Celtic fun.

From 2002-2008, the Brobdingnagian Bards redefined musical comedy at DragonCon. The reunited in 2010 and since 2013, they have made this convention their one solid annual performance. As the Bards, Marc Gunn and Andrew McKee played for packed concerts, had fire marshalls called, aroused hysteria, and were attacked by wild hedgehogs through the passion and excitement of their performances.

Join them for Celtic Comedy music at it's best!
