This summer’s Shirefest is but a memory, but we’ll keep you warm with music from 20 great bands at this year’s Winterfest. The festival will once again be held at the frozen lake northeast of Frerin’s Court at Thorin’s Gate.  Captains will be on hand for summons if necessary.

Second Breakfast’s house band, Breakfast Club, will kick off this year’s festivities with a concert at 8pm EST/server time on Friday, December 16th.  This will be followed by a round robin jam session from 9pm until the musicians get tired (which will certainly be after midnight).  Individual bands and bards are welcome to share a song of their own.

The festival continues on December 17th with 12 bands from noon until midnight.  7 more bands will join us on December 18th from noon until 7pm.   Expect lots of Yuletide music, but also plenty of surprises!
