About

About Dragon Con

From 2002-2008, the Brobdingnagian Bards redefined musical comedy at Dragon Con. They reunited in 2010 and since 2013, they have made this convention their one solid annual performance. As the Bards, Marc Gunn and Andrew McKee played for packed concerts, had Fire Marshals call, aroused hysteria, and were attacked by wild hedgehogs through the passion and excitement of their performances.

They creatively combine traditional Scotch-Irish songs with Sci-Fi Fantasy music to create an inspired evening of Celtic fun.
