2020 Virtual Faire Entertainment
Drunk and Disorderly
Drunk and Disorderly was formed when David Anthony, The Foxy Bard, roped several poor sods into being in his band. That was over two years ago, and yet we still don’t have a set list. But that’s all fine because all we need is the key and we can deliver! We pride ourselves on our unique blend of music that is a mixture of period music, traditional Celtic style music, and traditional internet meme songs. We are also one of the few bands that are able to sing in over 40 different languages.
Dorks in Dungeons
Dorks in Dungeons is an acclaimed comedy show about delivering the mail in a fantastical world. Using the framework of a tabletop role-playing game, the Dorks create each show with the help of audience suggestions and the whim of a 20 sided die.
Blacksmith Ted Hinsman
I am an artist blacksmith/toolmaker/ blade-smith. The range of my work includes: historical interpreting while demonstrating; outdoor/garden sculptures; functional hardware; swords; authentic colonial reproductions for homes such as, door hinges and door handles; and architectural iron work such as, benches and railings. I work in other metals such as: aluminum, copper, brass, bronze, titanium and meteorite.
I have worked on projects that incorporate ironwork with timber framing, and ironwork for a reproduction of a colonial merchant ship.
Presently, I am teaching metal-smithing through Amherst Leisure Services and private lessons for adults and teens. If you would like to learn to forge iron, our blacksmithing classes are a safe and fun way for the novice.

Over the years all of Brian’s children have performed with the band, beginning with founding member Liam Weiland, who was once the group’s percussionist and cello player and is now studying at the Berklee College of Music; Avalon Weiland who for several years was the group’s harpist and who just graduated from high school; and now the last of the clan, Aiden Weiland, who has just finished seventh grade and has been playing the violin since he was four years old. The group is in the process of recording a new CD – their fourth – this one promising to prominently feature young Aiden the fiddler.
