    Them say that Shire badgers greet the spring with song, after having run into mad ol' Jethro back in the day.
    Total nonsense of course... but wouldn't it be fun if it were so?

    As usual, we'll just have to go try find those singing spring badgers in the Shire forests. As usual, we'll probably be disappointed.

    So, the Brandy Badgers have a backup musical for the night, telling the tale of ... mad ol' Jethro, the one who first ran into the mystical musical badgers back in the day. 50 years after he started making music in the Shire, he has lost is flute! He needs a new one! The toolsmith won't give him one! Things are bad! Things have to get better!

    Welcome to a tale of high drama, low comedy, hard tests and soft berries! And lots of standing on one leg while playing the flute. Come join us!

    OOC details:
    The event will be a musical, based around the real-life music of Jethro Tull. After all, they celebrate their 50th anniversary these days. However, the story and song lyrics are performed in the /say channel and will all be somewhat LOTRO lore relevant.

    The musical will be performed by The Brandy Badgers, an in-house music collective of the Grand Order of the Lost Mathom.

    This is a hobbit-themed tale, although if there are travellers from out of bounds who have good reason to be into hobbit music and badger mythology, then by all means come! Just remember to behave well and stay at the back, so you don’t block the view of the locals! This is also a roleplaying event, so please keep chat in-character and don't discuss things not belonging in Middle Earth.

    Tonight's the night! Hope to see yer there!

    The play will be held just outside of Overhill, by the river. See pictures below. If you're in the center of Overhill, just follow the road north toward Brockenborings. Just outside of the fence on the north end of Overhill village and before the bridge to Brockenborings, we'll be down at the river.

    7:30PM UK! Welcome!
