Return to the Virginia Renaissance Festival

The Rogues are excited to be returning to the Virginia Renaissance Festival for their second year and all five weekends! Located on the beautiful grounds of the Lake Anna Winery in Spotsylvania, the Virginia Renaissance festival is a lovely little village.  Our debut last year was a great experience performing for the last two weekends and getting to know the cast and crew of this young but growing festival. 

Jimmy Mitchell is coming all the way up from Texas on the first weekend May 7-8, and we'll be joined by Doug Frobese from Texas as well for the 4th weekend May 28-29.  Randy, Ewan, Kyle and Mark will be holding down the fort, and we'll be joined by a couple guest drummers during the run when Mark can't be there.  Look for Meaghan Deakins Fuller, who you may know from dancing with Wine and Alchemy, but this time on drums weeks 1 and 4, and Adam Wyatt, the front man from the Shamrogues on bodhran week 3.

Look for the band on The Rose stage during faire days, and our opening weekend showtimes are 10:30, 12:00, 1:30 and 3:30.  Come on down and please help us spread the word about this great festival.  For more information and tickets go to http://www.varf.org/

The Rogues are also hoping to perform a concert event on Saturday night June 4th at the winery itself, which would be open to anyone, so you can come on down and enjoy great local wine along with your favorite Rogues tunes.  The festival may even do a package deal for the last weekend including tickets to the festival and the evening concert. We'll have more information on that as it happens.
