Staving off the Winter Blues in Essembra
« on: February 22, 2021, 08:47:28 PM »
Essembra's Elf on the Flying Stag family restaurant hosted a Winter Blues bardic festival recently, drawing quite a crowd of locals and travellers currently staying in town.

Illusionist Pogo Bunions introduced proceedings, followed by popular bardess Ghara performing a number of songs - some of her recent compositions and some old favorites - to the delight of the audience.

Newcomer Theodoric Stumblediggle took the stage to recite some traditional hinnish 'hinericks'  - some of the comic poems that he had written about local adventurers caused quite a bit of raucous laughter!

Ghara's closing encore performances brought the house down, complete with a mysterious cascade of roses! The dining room was abuzz with chatter and friendly sing-song for some hours after the show ended, with proprietress Cellista Rye hailing the event as a roaring success and just the thing to drive off the winter chill.

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
