FaerieCon is excited to announce the return of FAUN, our 2014 headliners for the Good Faeries Ball! Don’t miss what will be an epic performance!
FAUN combines medieval & ancient instruments with modern influences to create an enchanting and powerful atmosphere. The band’s performance incorporates many different instruments, including the Celtic harp, hurdy-gurdy, key fiddle, various lutes, the bagpipes, archaic beats, large Japanese taiko drums, flutes, hammered dulcimer, and many more. FAUN’s melodic vocal section goes from solo, folk-like, and often ambient melodies, to enchanting chant-like performances. With two female singers and frontman Oliver s.tyr combining their voices, something truly magical happens. FAUN’s fusion of Celtic folk and medieval music with driving beats draws an ever-growing crowd of ardent followers.
