A fair lass with golden hair and a sweet voice. A heartbroken lad. The enchanted musicians of a dark Shire forest. Welcome to a magical night where old tales come alive.

Date: Sunday February 26th 2012
Time: 7PM GMT/2PM servertime
Place: The dark forest glade below the steep slopes SW of Tuckborough, the Shire. Coordinates: 34.3S, 72.2W

A night of song and story

Follow the tale of Richo from the Black Moors as he tries to woo the lovely lass Candia. Oh, if only he was able to play music suitable for her sweet, lovely voice. Music as beautiful and haunting as what can be heard in the Shire forests in the first days of spring…

A mysterious band of musicians has drawn inspiration from the tales of the singing badgers of the Shire forest, and invites you to come and enjoy a night of songs and story. Welcome, hobbits!


This is a hobbit-preferred event, although if there are travellers from out of bounds who have good reason to be in a dark Shire forest with a lot of hobbits, then by all means! Just behave well and don’t block the view of the locals!

Songs performed are based on Blackmore’s Night tunes. Story and song lyrics are performed in /say. Be aware of the LOTRO chat bug, so be sure to come close enough to the performers to catch what they say!

It is great if you don’t use forced emotes or add too much noise and sound to the event.

Welcome! Enjoy yerself!
