Performing every other Thursday
2pm-6pm EDT in front of the Pony on Belegaer
What's the story behind your band's founding?
Thorwien and Tunvil Wintermond started with music duets in June 2013, when the instruments in Bree did not work. Every evening we played with other players at the little bridge in front of Bree.
How did your band get its name?
Wintermond (winter moon) is our in-game surname. So our band name was quickly found > Moonbarden (moon bards)
How did your members meet one another?
We adopted Leynael, an RP girlfriend with a great interest in music. Later came Tomlyn, also a longtime RP friend, whose has a lot music in the blood. And so we have played regular concerts since September 2013.
How would you describe your band's music?
We play songs we like ourselves - from all times and all four wind directions - including unfamiliar melodies
How do you decide which songs to play?
To each of our regular concerts, each of us four alternately creates the playlist. We decide together about the playlist to special events like Shirefest 2018.
Do you have a signature song?
Moon songs :)
What's the highlight of your band's time together?
The shared joy of music.
Do you have any stories about a time when things didn't go so well?
We played our first big concert on Landroval - a very quiet soft song without drums. One of us had already logged in the next song and left the PC for a moment. Her cat probably found the game so interesting that it pressed the keys and started the new song. And so played suddenly in our very soft song a loud drum whirred.
Does your band play a regular concert? If so, when and where?
We perform every other Thursday on the stage in front of the Prancing Pony in Bree from 2:00 pm to 6:00 pm (EST) on the [DE-RP] Belegaer server - in every even calendar week.
Does your band have a website, Twitter feed, Youtube channel, or links to any performances?
