On Oct. 27-28 and also Nov. 3-4, 2012, Children Medieval Band played their Medieval Music repertoire at the Renaissance Fair in Escondido, California. Besides the medieval songs the kids played also an interesting unplugged acoustic rendition of “Ich Will’ by Rammstein.

It was a crowded fair with many entertainers so the kids got only a secondary spot, not a real stage. But still a good opportunity for them to play in front of people and promote their music. The ‘Royal Court’ was impressed by the kids performance and for the next Fair (April 2013) they were promised a large stage.

At this fair, CMB displayed their CD, containing seven medieval songs. We’d like to thank the unknown young lady who bought 10 disks: please contact us with a comment on this site, we’d like to send you some extra free cds for your friends. Thank you!

A Tielman Susato song called ‘MohrenTanz’. We call it ‘Entrada’. We added a more medieval part to it.

    And then they met with Mr. Mac the Pirate. He was performing his pirate songs at the Escondido Fair. A friendly singer with a good voice and several nice compositions. They had a great time together.

    At the end a voice in the background: “…tell them to be lawyers when they grow up”. Cute. This was the guitar player from The Dread Crew of Oddwood. It’s hard to make a living as a musician…
