“We don’t eat Elvish lembas in the mountains
We don’t drink miruvor, and never tea
We don’t live on mushrooms like those hobbits
We like livin’ right, and bein’ free.”
Yes, that’s us – THE ROLLING KEGS, Laurelin’s all-singing, all-dancing, all-Dwarven band, full of ale and ready to roll. Double runner-up winners at last year’s Weatherstock, and entered again for this year, The Kegs have a long history of musical experience to draw on: our band leader, Kandral Strongbeard, was one of the founding members way back in 2011.
Rehearsals are democratic – no one Dwarf dictates what we will perform, or how it will be arranged. We make songs of all kinds, from lore-faithful Dwarven anthems and battle songs, through events that deal with all the races of Middle Earth, to the frivolous and even ridiculous. A troll who loved ballet? We’ve got it. Haradrim turned into cottage cheese? No problem. Our band is forged in the fires of friendship and humour, always.
And now for the exciting part! This band, renowned for the quality of its music and original lyrics, is recruiting. If you’re a Dwarf who loves making music, and perhaps even has songs and lyrics of your own that you’d like the world to enjoy, we’d love to hear from you. Be one of The Rolling Kegs!
~From every hall we came and flocked to you~
~You say: a willing heart is all I ask of you~
~Dwarves like us don’t need to make a fuss~
~Just give them a chance, for they are one of us~
