23 Stages with Live Entertainment

Andrew McKee, the Irish Bard

  • Limited Engagement
A teller of stories, a weaver of dreams. Player of music, singer of songs. Knows a little bit of magic and a trick or two. Knows the proper way to meet a dragon, do you?

Bettina Bawdeville

  • Adult (16+)
  • Limited Engagement
Bettina Bawdeville sings risque original pub songs, mixing the bawdy with hints of vaudeville. Audience participation and shout-along opportunities abound! Not for delicate sensibilities. Show rated PG-16 - not suitable for children.

Burbage and The Bard

  • Adult (16+)
  • Limited Engagement
The legendary playwright and his greatest actor are here, and there's nothing you can do about it! Bear witness to Shakespeare's lesser-known talent for song, and Burbage's greater-known talent for sizzle ('tis the pants). Sing-y, silly, and downright sloppy times await with Burbage and the Bard!


Cantiga's unique and magical music has delighted visitors to Renaissance Festivals across North America for almost thirty years.

World-class bagpipes, earthshaking drums, rockin’ guitars, and a mile-a-minute banter only barely scratches the surface of this comedic group of Celtic Lads!

Ermagerd the Bard

  • Limited Engagement
Ermagerd is a bard: a historic musician and wordsmith. You can "Choose your Own Bardventure" by voting on what songs, stories, and stand-up history she'll perform in over a dozen languages! And kids and families can join her for "Ermagerd's Silly Singalong!

Gan Ainm

  • SAPA
Gan Ainm began as the House Band for Scarborough, and has continued to grow, change and adapt for many  years.   The numbers may change but their lighthearted music or serious ballads will continue to entertain for dancers, singers, and enjoyment of all.  Join this bunch of merry Traveling Folk as they appear about the Faire.
