The Rogues in Sunny Sarasota

The Rogues just finished up our first-ever weekend at the Sarasota Medieval Fair in sunny Sarasota, FL.

What a great festival.  Everyone was extremely friendly, especially the management when they scrambled to find us a hotel room instead of an RV space at the last minute when the RV broke down 30 miles north of Sarasota the day before the show.

The site was beautiful and we had a great stage near the front gate that we shared with Bones Medieval Mysteries.  He has a great magic show you should see if you ever get the chance.

The weather was beautiful and the stage was right next to a kumquat tree so the smell of citrus was always in the air.  Couldn't have asked for more.  Ewan, Bryan and Randy were joined by first-timer Jamie Everett, who stepped in at the last minute to fill in the 2nd piper spot.  He did a great job learning our material quickly and fit right in.  All in all it was a fantastic weekend and we hope to be back next year - without the breakdown.
