Individuals that would like to play music on medieval instruments with a modern twist including Folk, Rock, and Metal as well as Irish/Celtic, Scottish, and other traditional tunes from other countries. If you aren't familiar with medieval folk or medieval folk metal, listen to bands such as In Extremo, Corvus Corax, Gral, Nightwish, or Stary Olsa. That is the sound that this Meetup is aiming for.
Medieval instruments include lute, guitar, tabor (long drum), hurdy gurdy, bagpipes, shawms (flutes), psaltery, rebec (violin or fiddle). If you can play Scarborough Faire , Greensleeves, or Morning Has Broken that's a great start! But I myself would like to play "One" by Metallica! Medieval music can include music from many different countries sung in many different languages. Sheet music and stands are welcome. Hand drummers and bodhrans are also welcome. Flute and fiddle players are welcome as well.
The vision of this meetup is to play "experimental" music from different genres; however, if a tune is deemed "not suitable" due to potentially offensive content (vulgarity, etc.) it will not be included in the repertoire. The purpose of this Meetup is for discussing and playing music and making new friends. This meetup does not endorse any type of political, religious, ethnic, or other types of statements or behavior which may offend some members or cause the meetup to be removed.
