The Original Celtic Renaissance

Brobdingnagian Bards


Over Six Million Celtic MP3s Served!

Not Just Fun Celtic Music, We Live to Tell the Tale...!

Scottish and Irish folk songs combined with the Lord of the Rings music and a wee bit o'Celtic fun. The Brobdingnagian Bards (pronounced brob-din-nahg-EE-en) are The Original Celtic Renaissance music duo. It's great Celtic music from Austin, Texas. Their unique brand of folk music on the autoharp, recorder, and mandolin made them one of the most-popular Celtic groups online.

Brobdingnagian Bards performed coast-to-coast, and in a given month were at a Lord of the Rings Oscar Party, a Celtic festival, or a Science Fiction Convention. However, they were an absolute favorite at Renaissance Faires where they added high-energy and wit to make every show a memorable experience.

Brobdingnagian Bards officially parted ways in 2008. However, in 2012, they reunited for limited engagements, mostly notably their annual show at Dragon Con, where they have hinted about releasing another album together.
