Meet The Crazy Ladies of the Forest
Shirefest 2014 and 2015 Veterans
What's the story behind your band's founding?
When I came to Celondim the first thing I did is buy a lute from my last copper. I still play that lute *smiles* I've been gathering songs for years and usually played indoors with my next of kin. When I met other Ladies with the same sympathy for music, things started to come out in the public.
How did your band get its name?
We sympathize with 'crazy people', the outsiders of society, who are often wonderfull people. 'Crazy ladies in a forest' could be such people in our world. Besides we love Forests!
How would you describe your band's music?
Music that touches the Heart, be it it makes you think, hide a tear, dance or smile!
How do you decide which songs to play?
See above. Furthermore: songs should fit our base setup lute-harp-theorbo-drums. There are exceptions, and a lot of discussions about those exceptions *grins*
Do you have a signature song?
Our signature song is 'Song for a Forest' and we usually start our performances with it.
What's the highlight of your band's time together?
We were very happy to have a spot on the Rockfest in Duillond, and even more happy that all went well and people were enthusiastic about our performance!
Do you have any embarrassing stories about a time when things didn't go so well?
Yes, and too embarrassing to share *blushes*
Does your band have a website, Twitter feed or links to any performances?
We have setup a node on the Laurelin Archives where we will post planned performances. See http://laurelinarchives.org/node/25697
Our performance at the Rockfest can be seen here: http://www.twitch.tv/barafunda/b/542936357
What's the one thing we should know about your band above all else?
Our slogan: Come and dance, bring your Heart!
