Excalibur is magically reborn
What a great start to another year at our home faire, Excalibur Fantasy Faire! I wasn't quite ready for the year to begin. So much to do and so little time. So I was a wee bit surprised when the year started up without me being ready, but despite the taunts of rain it was a fantastic weekend.

If you were turned off by the threat of storm, big mistake. It rained at night, but the days were good English weather--dark, overcast, and cool. I expected more rain than there was, but the weather was held at bay allowing us to have a delightfully, relaxing weekend.

Saturday morning we had a packed show at the Royal Oak stage by front gate. A whole slew of people showed up. Shows are short, but we played some old favorites mixed with a bunch of new ones from our upcoming Real Men Wear Kilts CD (still in production).

A few shows were kinda slow, but we made some changes on Sunday that helped improve the performance at the Golden Cockrell on Sunday. It was a joy to see all our wonderful friends out there. Comraderie is what I love best about this small faire, and it was plentiful.

Oh, and Hagar Hahn became our first contributing patron for the Real Men Wear Kilts CD, and we've just barely scratched the surface of starting the album! Thanks Hagar!

All in all a beautiful start to a great faire. Meantime, we are looking for folks to help promote us out at Excalibur. Check the Bard Forum for details. The faire really needs a big year, so please come out if ye can and tell All your friends about the best little Renaissance festival in Texas.
