The Magic of Daniel GreenWolf

Daniel GreenWolf is an award-winning magician, writer, creator, and slightly mad Irishman.

He has been voted as one of the top five solo variety acts in the United States by the Renaissance Festival podcast and Renaissance Magazine for five years in a row.

The Magic of Daniel GreenWolf is a show that takes highly visual magic, theatrical storytelling, exhilarating Irish music, interactive comedy, & thrilling danger, and wraps it in a Celtic theme that has been described as “A witty, modern-day Celtic Viking. Like James Joyce with a broad sword.”

He will be performing both weekends this Season. Don’t miss our featured performer!

Bad Idea Entertainment

Variety Act

The Master of (Somewhat Controlled) Disaster:
Doug Stafford

As an entertainer for all ages, Doug Stafford’s notion of a good time ranges from demonstrating the use of fire as alternate means of hair removal to knife juggling while perched atop a seesaw. Doug developed his act in dark alleys with sideshow artists, magicians, jugglers, and creepy comedians. He brings all this to you, with an uncanny sense of why one should never do such things.

A Very Bad Idea

Succinctly Shakespeare

William Shakespeare Portrayal

Joining us is none other than THE GREATEST WRITER EVER!! (All of you who said Francis Bacon, get out.) Presented by a devoted actor, author, and (ironically) playwright, William Shakespeare is here to prove that you only die IN his plays, not from boredom while watching them. He’s a real sonnet of a gun.

NOTE: Succinctly Shakespeare will only be in attendance the second weekend of the faire, May 12th & 13th.


The Pride of Ireland

"Not So" Traditional Music

Matt Young’s music takes inspiration from not only the songs of Ireland, but of Newfoundland, maritime songs and shanties, American folk, and Bluegrass.  Matt is a musical performing artist, currently based in upstate New York. With a 15-year background in classical operatic performance, Matt was drawn to the traditional music of Ireland, as well as the American folk and bluegrass he grew up hearing from his grandfather, who was a fiddler. Matt’s influences have also spread into the songs and shanties of Newfoundland and the maritime islands. From rousing pub tunes to ballads charged with emotion, this young musician has kept audiences tapping their toes and raising their glasses.

Harpspun

Celtic Harpist

Songs of old, when knights were bold, and faeries roamed the woods — when Michele Mountain plays her Celtic harp, it can be hard to tell where she stops and the music begins. That’s what happens when you combine over 25 years as a working harpist with the sheer gratitude of someone who loves what she does. Stop by to hear traditional music of the British Isles, tales both fearful and fair, and much more.


Dungeon Palz Presents: How to be Bad at D&D

Interactive Improv

Dungeon Palz is a long-running interactive comedy show where comedians and audience members alike play D&D-style fantasy role playing games on-stage. Enjoy the most chaotic and least rule-abiding game of “D&D” you’ve ever played. Roll dice, battle fantastical monsters, role-play characters you’ve never seen before, and drive your Dungeon Master Josh Yarnall insane, all while being very poorly instructed by comedian and host Matt Aukamp.
