Most great tales begin with, “Once upon a time …” and end with “happily ever after.” Ay, but this is a true tale, and a messy one. This story begins with a cursed Bard and a deal with a Dragon. These songs reveal my heart and my journey. Mirth, grief, mischief, tears and laughter are woven into each bit of music. So, pour a cup of tea … or ale … or something stronger. Listen now, and let me sing to you of Nine Toes the Bard.
