Bardic Circle (at Upper Fire Circle)
“This is YOUR chance to share your inner bard. Come sing a song, recite a poem, do an interpretive dance, tell a story, or share any of your creative passions around an intimate fire at the upper fire circle.
Karaoke/Open Mic/Meet and Greet with DJ Mordecai
“Come sing your favorite songs to backing tracks or accompany yourself. Sing a serious song, a parody of a hit, or just come to listen, laugh, socialize, and have some snacks. Light fare and beverages will be provided down at the Dance Pavilion for this event. All are welcome!!”
Themed Masquerade with DJ Mordecai
Friday Night Performance:
“HVBRIS is a fun-loving, licentious, and geeky band of fire freaks who seek to entertain and amuse with wickedly…” A mix of fire, vaudeville, burlesque, and sideshow; they burn bright as day with the fiery talent and blazing comedy that is the one and only HVBRIS. When it’s too hot to handle, they’re just getting started!
We are not just a fire performance troupe, but a collection of fire performers who also excel at teaching various fire arts. The troupe is located predominantly in the tri-state area, but performs all along the east coast.
Traveling along the eastern seaboard, we perform throughout the region and have appeared from Massachusetts to Virginia, and various spots in between.
We have been teaching at Free Spirit Gathering for more than eight years, and started out performing at Fires of Venus in 2009.
Hubris also appeared at Walk This Way’s Becky’s Fund charity fund-raiser event on October 6, 2009 in Washington, DC.
HVBRIS is a LAWN SHOW. No access to the Pavillion will be granted, per request of the performers. Please bring Blankets and lawn chairs for seating, as chairs from the Pavillion cannot be taken out of the Pavillion.
Saturday Night Concert
ilyAIMY leaves it to the fans to decide what they sound like to them. They say it sounds like some combination of Rusted Root, Buckingham/Nicks, Jethro Tull, acoustic Tool, Ani Difranco, Keller Williams, “Nickel Creek on crack”, Alice in Chains, the Indigo Girls, Metallica, and Cry Cry Cry – it’s no wonder ilyAIMY has shared events comfortably with folk acts (We’re About 9, Ellis Paul, Dar Williams and Pat Wictor), anti-folk acts (Hammell on Trial, Ember Swift) and pop-rock acts (the Blue Oyster Cult, Jeffrey Gaines, The Lloyd Dobler Effect, Gym Class Heroes) as well as death metal bands, reggae groups and hip-hop acts.
An ilyAIMY audience consists of fans that listen quietly while nodding their heads thoughtfully, a couple of guys headbanding, occassional ball-room waltzers, and that woman over there doing that weird raver thing with her hands…
For over a decade, Rob Hinkal and Heather Aubrey Lloyd have crisscrossed the nation as ilyAIMY (i love you And I Miss You). They have played everything from bait shops to biker weeks to clothing-optional resorts. Collectively their energetic brand of new-folk has garnered honors from Kerrville Folk Festival, the Falcon Ridge Folk Festival, Washington Area Music Awards, Rocky Mountain Folks Fest, Telluride Bluegrass Festival, National Association for Campus Activities, the Northeast Regional Folk Alliance and more. Most recently, they are celebrating a third win as the Washington Area Music Association Winners for Best Contemporary Folk Group. They combine award-winning songwriting, tight male/female harmonies, signature intricate slap-style guitar work, ukulele, djembe and an eclectically humorous stage show into an exquisite package.
