Scottish and Irish folk songs combined with the Lord of the Rings music and a wee bit o’Celtic fun. The Brobdingnagian Bards (pronounced brob-din-nahg-EE-en) were The Original Celtic Renaissance music duo from Austin, Texas. Their unique brand of folk music on the autoharp, recorder, and mandolin made them one of the most-popular Celtic music groups online where they continue to give away thousands of free Celtic MP3 downloads daily.



From 1999 to 2008, the Brobdingnagian Bards performed coast-to-coast, and in a given month could be found at a Lord of the Rings Oscar Party, a Celtic festival, or a Science Fiction Convention. However, they were an absolute favorite at Renaissance Faires where they added high-energy and wit to make every show a memorable experience.



Thanks in part to this podcast, their shows are never done!

A Brobdinagian Review

Just wanted to say that I loved the podcast, I am now going back and listening to all of the old one for the first time. Marc and Andrew play off well off each other.
Marc is the quintisential Auto-Harper who does a great job harping about hiself. while Andrew is a man who needs no introduction.........or at least there is none that is fitting of him

If you like topics from sci-fi to medival you will like this one, it is a plethora of geekiness. I listen to the podcast when I need a good laugh at work
I am hoping to see them perform on day, and look forward to hearinfg the next episode.

i am yrsa ,

Thank you!!!

I am so glad to see that you guys are back with new programs. I love your podcasts. Great songs and fun to listen shows.

Sincerely.
Georgeta
