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. No two sets are ever the same and the Craic is grand! Visit her website to view her extensive touring experience and sample songs from all five independent CDs. 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!

Bohemian Jewels

Come, be captivated by Avalon's dancing ladies. The Bohemian Jewels are bellydance enthusiasts from all over East Texas performing eclectic styles of dance.  We have fun and truly enjoy dancing and it shows in every performance. Visit us each week at the Treehouse Stage!

Greg Faire_edited.jpg

Gregor MacGregor

is the greatest Irish musician from the Scottish Isles. Or, more likely, the only Irish musician from the Scottish Isles! He traveled to Ireland for love, only to fall in love a second time with the country's beautiful music.
He will lift your spirits with boisterous Irish and Celtic dance tunes and take your heart and soul to the beautiful green shores of Erin with soulful airs performed on the tinwhistle and low whistle. Find him performing in the lanes of Avalon Faire and have your cares whisked away.

Pangur.jpg

Pangur Band

Pangur Band developed into a musical group in 2019 out of the combined effort of classically trained musicians.  From the original conception and music ideas by Shannon Roberts (Violin/Voice/Bodhrán), working with Ben Shepherd (Guitar/Vocals) for arranging, the music of Pangur Band features skilled musicians playing traditional music with a personal touch and represents the cultural wealth found in the Irish/Celtic tradition.  Members include, Jessica Ogilvie (Flute/Tin Whistle), Mitch Moehring (Bass), Tristan Roberts (Violin/Vocals), Kevin Ogilvie (Percussion), and Miranda Dolive (Vocals). 

every Faire day except Apr 17 & Apr 30

Selkie Silks

I’m Selkie Shine and I’m an aerialist. I first fell in love with aerial silks in October 2016 and I’ve been performing ever since. My act consists of splits, flips, spins, and drops that are sure to leave you excited for more.

Thom Bedlam

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!
