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 won three Austin Music Awards in 2004, 2006, and 2007. They creatively combine traditional Scotch-Irish songs with Sci Fi Fantasy music to create an inspired evening of Celtic fun. They've 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!
