Music in the air in Essembra
« on: August 13, 2020, 04:55:01 AM »
Even a few days after the fact, Essembra's folk are humming some of the tunes that were performed at the Silver Taproom during a Bardic concert organised by the bardess Ghara - a young bard who has been making quite the name for herself in public events over the last few seasons with her performances and compositions.

Performing on Rolliver's stage were the bards:

- Ghara herself, who performed several songs, dance routines, and bawdy poems!
- The elf Aralynn - a seemingly recent arrival who peformed several songs including a composition commemorating the defeat of Xalathros the Twisted!
- Local girl Buttercup who gave some traditional songs a cheerful rendition and was even called for an encore (and some folk say she gained a fan who begged her sign his shield!)
- The famous bard of Mistledale, Jhaer Brightsong, who was fortuitously in the area when this event was announced and regaled us with a traditional comical song.
- The Songbird of Moondale - Tyvessa Mithrem of the Mailed Mantle, whose ghostly voice gave us a Dalelander song from several centuries ago.

Additionally, the wizard known as Ryferth the Red won a raffle for sausages - but, alas! There seems to have been some miscommunication (to the amusement of the crowd) as the Silver Taproom rather famously does not serve them! (Just ask Rolliver - or, perhaps don't if he seems in an ill temper already).

A good crowd came to hear the songs and see the bards perform, and spirits are high thanks to a night of song and drink. Some local lads are even starting to ask when there next such event will be - and Rolliver Thynd is very keen to remind people that his stage is always open and the ale is always flowing at the Tap!
Her skin is pale, her eyes are red,
Her leaden voice commands the dead,
To rise and stand beside their dreadful queen.
No mortal power escapes her thrall,
Her hunger will consume us all,
And even now I hear her call: Jolene
