Faerieworlds 2010: Good Faeries Day (7/30/10)

Faerieworlds: Day 1 – Good Faeries Day
Friday, 30 July 2010

Faerieworlds 2010 pilgrimmaged back to the Buford Recreation Park at the Mount Pisgah Arboretum once again this year with a spectacular opening day on Friday with Good Faeries Day. Now with evening entertainment and camps all night long as they re-designed their main event site as an inner circle with over 300 camping sites on its eastern end and more camping 10 minutes hike away. This year was their biggest Faerieworlds yet. Beautiful additions from Woodland’s summer journey to England were incorporated including a sacred standing stone circle and a wishing tree. Chill out and hangout areas abound, a healthy food court, more recycling and trash areas, campfire pits with fires at night, and of course the cool relaxing river escape. Entertainment went from 2 pm until midnight. Friday saw Tricky Pixie at 3 pm, A mesmerizing opening ritual and welcoming ceremony revealing the stone circle, then 5 pm David Helfand and the Mystic Ensemble brought joy to the stage, Wendy Rule enchanted the audience at 6:30 pm, and Brother rocked the world at 8 pm, followed by the enchanting mesmerization of Woodland until the witching hour. On The Neverworlds stage Mingushki took off at 2:30, with Marcus Fire at 5:45, and Ghillie Dhu at 7:15. I did get a chance to see Tricky Pixie, Brother, and Woodland – What amazing bands and a dance exhaustion day. Always good to be in Faerieworlds, seeing friends, family, and clan; eating the forbidden fruit of the fae that keeps you in Faerieland, spinning around in circles with pixies and sprites, soaking with mermaids and selchies in the cool refreshing river, and hearing chilling tales from trolls and gnomes by the fire’s light. Good Faeries Day was everso mystical and a blessing. Rating: 5 stars out of 5.

* http://www.brothermusic.com/ * Australia * Performance at Faerieworlds 2010 on 7/30/2010 from 8:00-10:00 pm *
An awesome Celtic mongrel rock band from Australia … Brother had the Fae spinning crazily on the main stage opening night of Faerieworlds 2010. Brother incorporates bagpipes, didgeridoo, vocals, and mashes Celtic and Australian rock to a unique sound of their very own. The band consists of the Richardson brothers – Hamish, Angus, and Fergus who grew up together in Bathurst while attending the Scots School. They started their band in 1992 touring pubs in Sydney Australia. They record on their own record label called Rhubarb Records having released their first album “Black and White” and then “2000’s THis Way Up”. Fergus left the band in 1996 for filmmaking and now resides in Arizona operating a boutique with his wife. Hamish left in March of 2007 and moved to New South Wales. Angus moved to Los Angeles. Today they primarily play in the United States and take numerous tours around North America, Japan, France, Egypt, and Australia. The Brothers consist of the sounds of Angus, Dalbo, and Drew today. An amazing combination who certainly contributed to the gates opening to Faerieworlds. Rating: 5 stars out of 5.
