The Avalon Cast
Introducing the Cast of Avalon. The Lady Elaine of Glamorganshire (Traci Peacock), sister of the beloved King Arthur (Mark Hall), welcomes all to the annual celebration of her brother's coronation. But beware! Queen Guinevere (Laminda Miller) must be protected from the evil designs of Morgan la Fey, who seeks to ransom the queen for Arthur's crown.
The Court will hold a Commissioning Ceremony each day of the Faire, awarding titles of honor to those who wish to be recognized. Is it your birthday? Alert a Cast member and walk the Parade as our invited guest. Meet us in the lanes to chat or mayhaps share a meal. And don't be too surprised if a scuffle ensues over who spilled who's ale! All of this and more is presented in the lanes and on the stages of Avalon Faire by this talented troupe, the Cast of Avalon.
The Bard O'Neill
Join the Diane Linn - the Bard O'Neill on musical adventures from one time into another and back again. The songs are your choice, "sweet or saucy," that the Bard will pick from her repertoire.

Diane plays guitars (6 & 12 string), bodhram (the Celtic drum) and sings with gusto and compassion. She is a consummate entertainer who delights in rapport with new friends and old!
The Bookend Pipers
A rare lefty and the ordinary righty.
Wee Jimmy (Jared Malone) is a traditionally trained piper of Irish descent. He has a degree from Lyon College in bagpipe performance. He has performed by invitation with bands competing in Glasgow Scotland at the International Tattoo.
Should you have a burning desire to hear some smoking hot pipes. Wee Jimmy is the man.
Ol Leggern (Lary Fowler) is a traditionally trained Scottish piper with some Irish genetics as well.
Ol Leggern is a somewhat successful full time piper. He started piping at 55 to fulfill a long time dream. If a long slow waltz is more to your liking then he's the guy. Or a medley of Flintstones, Star Wars, Lion King and Jesus Christ Superstar.
Celtic singer songwriter Kris Colt reveals her past incarnation from the time of her ancestors in Scotland, Ireland, England, and Wales as the song bird Black Rose. She is a modern bard with a lyrical singing style, and she passionately performs songs of both original and ancient origin. This artist has been on the boards as a performer her entire life in professional music theatre and especially enjoys her time with her Celtic folk rock act Kris Colt and The Black Rose Band.

Pair of Pirates
Pair of Pirates band features a trio of talented musicians that perform sea shanties, pirate songs, and some original pirate tunes while incorporating comedy. They perform popular pirate songs that will get everyone talking like pirates. You will be singing “Yo Ho Ho and a Bottle of Rum” and wanting to join their crew.
Captain Thom Bedlam is landlocked, bored, and bursting with thomfoolery. It's an array of magical mayhem, the sharing of vastly inaccurate knowledge, and gregarious (if ineffective lessons) on piracy. Of all the lying, cheating, unscrupulous scoundrels you'll ever meet, you'll like him the best. He is not so much memorable as he is hilariously traumatizing!
