A day to remember the bards of old. A concert with a selection of tunes related to one of the finest writers we have seen. 

J.R.R. Tolkien passed away September 2nd 1973. We’ll pay homage to him with a concert in the Ivy Bush, playing tunes inspired by his works (from the movies, adapted from his poems or likewise). 

Date: Sunday September 2nd
Time: 7:30PM UK (2:30PM servertime)
Location: Ivy Bush Inn, Hobbiton

About the concert

The concert is performed by The Brandy Badgers, the in-house music collective in the Grand Order of the Lost Mathom. Given the concert theme, this is not a strict roleplaying event, so players of all sizes and shapes are welcome. Instead of speaking about Tolkien, the musicians will likely play songs inspired by Ronald Dwale, Tolkien’s in-game alter ego.

Although there would be many lore reasons to have the concert in the Bird and Baby, the inn is somewhat unsuitable for concerts. So we’ve moved to the Ivy Bush instead.

The concert should last approx. an hour. Afterwards, the stage is open for anyone else who would like to play a suitable tune.

Hope to see you at the Ivy Bush this Sunday!
