Forest of OAKS 2017

On Saturday 13th May 2017, Miss Acorne Oakley presented “The Forest of OAKS”, in the Oldfurlong Homestead, on the Laurelin server, in LOTRO. The bands who had played in the OAKS concert series, over the last year, returned to Oldfurlong to play a 30 minute set. Here are some screenshots of the bands.

First were Polnolunie.

There then followed a 10th Anniversary Tribute to Middle Earth music. Eleven bands each played one Middle Earth themed song. The first were Andune Ensemble.

The Breakfast Club.

The Oatbarton Hillbillies.

Brandywine and Biscuits.

The Traveling Bilberries.

Les Chantfables

Die Mondbarden.

A Rock and a Hard Place.

The Brandy Badgers.

Die Bunten Vogel.

After the tribute the bands resumed playing their 30 minutes sets. I’m afraid I missed The Hope and The Shire Tramps due to playing with the Bree Lore Hall Ensemble on Landroval, however I made it back in time to see Instant Play.

Skarn.

Arda.

and last but not least The Rolling Kegs.

Finally Miss Acorne gave a speech and Miss Anerea and friend played a closing song.

The 5th Tower of Mindon Concert

On Friday 24th February 2017, the 5th Tower of Mindon concert took place on the Landroval server, in LOTRO. The Stock Tower, in the Shire, stood in for The Mindon Tower. I am a bit hazy about the whole thing because it was mostly in Russian. From what I understand, this concert used to take place every year on a Russian server. The Mindon Tower was built to honour either Ingwë, the High King of the Elves, or somebody called Mindon or maybe they were the same person (don’t ask me, I’m not the Tolkien Professor). Anyway this concert is on their birthday. <Edit: See Master Gerhalt’s comment below>

The first band were Polnolunie.

Yule Screenshot Roundup – Part 3

Here is the third and final part of my LOTRO Yule screenshot roundup.

On Tuesday 27th December 2016 I attended “Gala Du Lierre Touffu”, which I believe translates as “Gala of the Ivy Bush”, in the Ivy Bush Inn, Hobbiton on the Sirannon server in LOTRO. Normally I can’t make it to this event but having lots of spare time over the holidays allowed me to this one time. Miss Louella introduced the acts.

Ninny Hammers Play In New Lore Hall

On Saturday 7th January 2016 the Ninny Hammers played a concert in their new regular venue, the new Lore Hall, on Landroval in LOTRO. The Lore hall, which, I believe, had only been opened the previous day, has been added primarily for the Tolkien Professor’s new course, “Exploring the Lord of the Rings”. From now on the Ninnys plan to play their weekly concert there, at the usual time of 7pm GMT, 20:00 CET, 2pm server time. Here are a few screenshots I took at the concert.
