A history of music on Crickhollow
It all started with Breakfast Club. The band was formed for Ghosts, Goosebumps and Graveyard Tales, the first one of Second Breakfast's annual Harvestmath events. The band came back together for Weatherstock III:
Another Crickhollow band, Symphonious, also played at Weatherstock III. They were known for free playing and creative compositions:
Breakfast Club would go on to play weekly shows on Crickhollow, monthly ones on Landroval, the occasional concert on Laurelin, Sirannon and Gladden, and three more Weatherstocks. Some of their performances may be seen on their band page.
