On Saturday 12th May 2018 the 4th annual Forest of Oaks concert took place in Oldfurlong, on Laurelin, in #LOTRO. Miss Acorne Oakley present a concert featuring all the bands who have played OAKS (Oldfurlong Amazing Koncert Series) concerts over the past year. Here are some screen shots I took at the event.
The Orchestra of April’s Kindred Songbirds
A super-group of the solo artists from April’s OAKS.
Today’s No Whole Bard concert, on Landroval, in #LOTRO, was disrupted by a group of angry protestors. They occupied the stage, forcing the band to play their concert from the benches normally reserved for the audience. The protestors, from the #nomoretricksysongs movement, were worried about a repeat of last weeks tricksy songs concert on Crickhollow. Undaunted, the band reprised last weeks concert and, despite themselves, the audience enjoyed the concert.
No Whole Bard play two monthly concerts on the Pracing Pony stage in Bree. They play on Crickhollow on the last Sunday of the month, and on Landroval on the first Sunday of the month. Start times vary as the clocks go backwards and forwards, but currently they are at 7am server time, Noon BST, 1pm CEST, 9pm AEDT.
On 25th March 2018 the Lonely Mountain Band kinship celebrated their 10th Anniversary with a number of events. The events must have been well attended because the only time I’ve had worse lag was at Weatherstock. When I tried to take a screen shot my PC froze up for ages so I’m sorry about the limited number of screen shots.
The first event was a mounted procession from Ered Luin to Bree. The non-kinnies gathered outside the Falathlorn homesteads while the kinnies listened to speeches inside.
Fashionably late, the LMB kin members joined us.
We then headed through Ered Luin towards the Shire.
Once into the Shire we headed to the Brandywine Bridge.
At the Brandywine Bridge we paused to let everybody catch up.
Then on Bree!
At the Prancing Pony stage the Andune Ensemble played their regular concert.
Miss Holly has posted a video of the concert on her YouTube channel.
Next the founder of the Lonely Mountain Band kinship said a few words.
Then the Lonely Mountain Band Mega-Band played for an hour.
After the concert the raiders gathered for the “Mad-As-Heck” raid.
We then headed up to Esteldin.
We then headed out to Dol Dinen, armed with frying pans, butter knives, rolling pins and sparklers, to give the orcs the beating they so richly deserve.
Finally in Graug’s tent we lined up for some screen shots.
Many thanks to the Lonely Mountain Band kinship and all who took part and wishing the LMB kin another 10 years!
On 24th February 2018, the 6th LOTRO-Mindon Anniversary concert took place at the Stock Tower in the Shire, on Landroval, in LOTRO. LOTRO-Mindon is the largest website for the Russian LOTRO community. Here are some screen shots of the bands I took at the event.
On Sunday 4th March 2018, a group of her friends organised a birthday party for Miss Belaya, on the Belegaer server, in LOTRO. They all met up at the Mondbarden kinhouse and Miss Belaya was tricked into coming along, believing she was going to a rehearsal. The bands played in the round-robin format and then everybody headed over to the Andune Ensemble concert on Landroval. They then finished off the evening at the regular “Sonntags-Bree-Musik” event by the stables near the Prancing Pony.
Here are some screen shots I took of the bands at the Monbarden kinhouse.
The Blue Waves and the Brago Brothers
On Saturday 3rd March 2018 “A Day on the Greenfields Festival” took place on the Greenfields, on Landroval, in #LOTRO. The first band were The Hope.
On Friday 29th December 2017 Green Dragon Friday moved from the Green Dragon Inn in Hobbiton to the Plough and Stars for the traditional Brockenboring New Years Party, on Laurelin, in LOTRO. First there was a mixture of music and poetry inside the inn.
Here is the second part of my Yule Screenshot Roundup for 2017.
On Friday 22th December the Green Dragon Friday Yule party took place at the Green Dragon Inn on Laurelin. The crowd were entertained by the usual mixture of songs, stories and riddles, this time many of them with a Yule theme, including by The Brandy Badgers.
Here is the first part of my Yule Screenshot Roundup for 2017.
The first events of the Yule season were the No Whole Bard concerts on Crickhollow on Sunday 26th November and on Landroval on Sunday 3rd December.
Here is a roundup of my screenshots for Halloween 2017.
Things kicked off, appropriately enough, on Friday 13th October 2017 with Scream Dragon Friday, at the Green Dragon Inn, on Laurelin. The patrons of Green Dragon Friday dressed for the occasion and brought their most horrifying stories, poems and music pieces.
