Album Notes
The first album by the Brobdingnagian Bards. Sixteen of the very first songs performed at Excalibur Fantasy Faire in 1999. Fresh and clean recording brilliantly captures their unique sound with a somewhat \"live\" quality to it.It will make you laugh. It will make you cry. It will make you smile, and it will make you sigh. All in all, you will surely come away feeling alive and fresh, ready to enjoy the pleasures life has to offer you.

Review: \"a kind of Renaissance version of They Might Be Giants\"
-Austin Chronicle - 3 STARS

\"Pour yourself a shot of Jameson, throw another mat of peat on the fire and let the Bards carry you away to the Emerald Isle.\"

Personally I consider this debut album as one of the most charming ones in my collection. You can surely hear the enthousiasm of these two then very young musicians.
I love the unique style of this duo that seems to combine old traditionals with self written songs. Is it the way their modern songs seem to be traditional in some way, or the twist of it's own to the old songs?
Still haven't figured it out. I can only say I started listening to traditional celtic music, after I wanted to hear hear something else than metal.
Looking for something else than the usual trad music, I ended up with the Bards and can't get away from it.
