The CRAIC Show

The CRAIC Show is an intense & wildly entertaining act, made up of four international travelers who, in 1541, were banded together on an ancient battlefield.

This unique merging of music from far away lands brings a sound that is unlike any other.

Watching the group switch and interchange instruments throughout the show is something to see, songs are often started on bagpipes and ended with the entire group on percussions. Ever-changing and constantly blending styles, The CRAIC Show is always bringing a fresh, high energy blend of World Medieval Music.

The Limey Birds

The Limeybirds are Faith, Charity & Bunnie – 3 strong sisters of song who genuinely love what they do – the high energy involvement of the audience keeps ’em coming back for more!

A three- part acapella trio, this Music Show is full of old favourites and new Limey songs with hilarious banter in between that keeps it new and exciting every time.

An unparalleled vocal group; The Limeybirds are always a crowd pleaser. Featuring music favourites like “Sweet Violets”, “Roll Me Over (In the Clover)”, and NEW Limeybirds originals like “Rolling in the Hay”, “LondonTowne” and “Bonny Rollin’ Sailor”.

What sets these gals apart? ALL classically trained with Musical Theatre backgrounds, this 30-40 minute show is Top Notch Music Entertainment that envelopes the audience and carries them away.

Add in some sibling rivalry with some competitive choreography..you can imagine the silliness.

This award winning act has performed for dignitaries & common-folk alike across Canada and the United States. The Limeybirds first appeared on the touring circuit in 1999 and quickly grew to become one of today’s hottest “Don’t Miss” acts on the Renaissance Festival circuit.

The Limeybirds are unique on the Renfest circuit – you won’t find another act today that combines such high energy antics with sharp wit, banter and not to mention their stunning harmonies & vocal arrangements.

Completing the package is their banter and wit as they are also skilled Improvisational artists. Many a heckler has found out the hard way…these ladies look sweet, but they know how to deliver a zinger!

Often imitated; NEVER duplicated, The Limeybirds are THE premier act for your Event. From Bawdy to Baroque, 1550’s to 1950’s we’re the show you’re looking for. With performance ratings from PG to N for Naughty….this exceptional act is a sure-fire hit.

Todd Key

Todd has been entertaining audiences as one half of the hilarious juggling duo The Zucchini Brothers for over 20 years. He has performed at virtually every type of venue imaginable. Todd’s verbal and spherical jocularities bind his audiences together, uniting them in a stage of obsequious fondness (folks have a lot of fun at his shows). Todd talks and jokes with his audiences often times more proficiently than he juggles. And that is a good thing. Really!


Shelli Buttons

Adorable, sexy, fun, and feisty…. cute as a Button! Packed with Mad skills in the air and on the ground Shelli Buttons skills include, but are not limited to…

*Aerial Silks *Lyra (aerial hoop) *Trapeze *Aerial Cube * Juggling (knives, fire, clubs, babies) * Stilts *Fire Manipulation (Eating, Breathing, Poi) *Hula Hoop (fire hoop) *Acro Balance *Adagio *Wire/Rope walking *Walking Globe *Hand Balancing *Club Swinging *Shaker Cups *Comedy *Improvisation *Clowning *Contortion ** and overall Badassness!

My mission is to spread happiness everywhere I go and challenge you to push the boundaries and follow your dreams.


Wolgemut

It all starts with the sound-
Wolgemut performs historical music on original instruments such as the medieval bagpipes, shawms and bombastic drums as well as quiet instruments like the flute, medieval fiddle and harp.

A little history-
Founded in Berlin, Germany, Wolgemut has performed throughout the United States and Europe since 1997. We pride ourselves on providing high quality entertainment guaranteed to leave the audience “in a good mood”, which happens to be the translation of Wolgemut!

Harpist Patricia Liguori

Patricia Liguori is a self-taught harper and artist. She began her musical and art hobbies at the age of 10, playing a few other instruments before discovering the harp at the New York Ren fair 15 years ago, and it was lover ever since. 

While living in New Jersey, there weren’t many opportunities to learn from a teacher in her area, so she had to learn from observing others at concerts and Ren fairs, such as the Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Maryland, and Florida. 

To Florida she moved six years ago and incorporated her own experiences and methods from others and developed her own technique. She is often seen at Riverview Park in Sebastian, Florida playing her harp at her art shows for all to enjoy.

The Treeman

A walking, living tree
A sunny day. A cool patch of shade from a large oak tree. You sit to enjoy the lovely… wait a moment – did the tree just move? Must have been the breeze blowing through – HEY! The tree just stepped backwards! IT’S MOVING!

At outdoor festival and events, folks are experiencing the phenomenon known as the Walking TreeMan. Barely distinguishable from the real trees, Walking TreeMan moves slowly and deliberately across the meadow, down the path, or through the crowd, enchanting all who meet him.

At over twelve feet tall, the Walking TreeMan can be seen from over 150 yards away. Standing still, he becomes almost invisible, blending into the background – when he moves, he seems to suddenly spring to life, almost magically, amazing and astounding onlookers.

The Renegades

The Renegades, a rag tag team of pirates led by Captain Isaac Driskull, who travel far and wide to sing shanties and songs of the sea. A scurvy crew, when they are not entertaining in the Pirates Pub, you may find them in the lanes, so hide your gold! And be sure to ask them how their ship ended up in the middle of the forest. Some of their songs are a bit “colorful” and not suitable for younger ears.

The Fearless Improv Brigade

The Fearless Improv Brigade is first among many. They’re the first to flee a battle, the first in line for dinner, and the first to head to the local pub. FIBbers are funny that way. Actually, they’re funny in a lot of ways. Just give them a suggestion, and they’ll turn it into a Shakespeare-worthy scene, or even a song. Each bit is unique, made up on the spot, and – if we’re lucky – never seen again.Based at Surfside Playhouse, the FIBbers love to get the audience involved, whether it’s providing ideas for the next bit of craziness or being the subject of a freshly composed ballad. And they’re always safe for small ears.The Fearless Improv Brigade will be performing at various times and locations during the Fair.
For more information on the group, you can visit their website at www.fearlessimprov.org.

The Seni Shire is where many of these creatures come into being and make their home. There are dragon born as well as orcs, bugs, and other beastly little critters. It is likened to a crystal cave with part of it light and part of it dark. Mama Cat and Mama Dragoni sit just outside the cave with the occasional mermaid, keeping the fire lit and the beasties inside. Visitors are welcome but they must decide who is friend and who may be foe.
