FaerieCon West is excited to announce the Seattle premiere of FAUN, our 2013 headliners for the Bad Faeries Ball on Saturday night!
Faun will be also performing a very special acoustic concert Sunday night, offering a more intimate experience of their exceptional musicianship and vocals. These acoustic concerts sell out when they perform them in Germany so do not miss this opportunity to see Faun “unplugged.”
FAUN combines medieval & ancient instruments with modern influences to create an enchanting and powerful atmosphere. The band’s performance incorporates many different instruments, including the Celtic harp, hurdy-gurdy, key fiddle, various lutes, the bagpipes, archaic beats, large Japanese taiko drums, flutes, hammered dulcimer, and many more. FAUN’s melodic vocal section goes from solo, folk-like, and often ambient melodies, to enchanting chant-like performances. With two female singers, including Sonja Drakulich of Stellamara fame, and frontman Oliver s.tyr combining their voices, something truly magical happens. FAUN’s fusion of Celtic folk and medieval music with driving beats draws an ever-growing crowd of ardent followers.
FAUN was founded in early 2002 in Munich and has performed at more than 700 locations, festivals, concert halls and churches throughout the world. Some of them include: Mèra Luna Festival (Germany), Headlining the Faerieworld Festival Oregon USA & the Faeriecon Festival Maryland USA, Earthdance Festival (California USA), Elf Fantasy Fair (Netherlands), Wave Gotik Treffen (Germany), Fiesta Celtica Biella (Italy), Folkwoods Folkfestival (Netherlands), Arena van Vletingen (Belgium), Locomotive (Paris/France), Savari Karneval 2005 (Hungary), Palladius/Barcelona (Spain), and many more.
In cooperation with the distributor Screaming Banshee / ALIVE (Germany) FAUN have sold more than 120,000 CDs worldwide. Their latest CD, EDEN, was the cover story in one of the biggest music magazines of Germany (SONIC SEDUCER) and included artwork by some of the worlds leading fantasy artists including Brian Froud (UK), Julia Jeffrey (UK), and Kris Kuksi (USA).
