The Bards of Bruery are William
Edward Drynkette (Will E. Drynkette) and Phillip McGlass. They
are from the small village of Bruery just outside the town of
Alesburgshire on the Southwest Eastern most Northern border of
England which is as far away from London as you can get. ~
They met one fateful day as they woke up next to one another in a
ditch and realized they were both soaked in stout. Hence the
name that they took on.
They wander aimlessly around the villages
and county-sides looking to make only enough for another pint.
Perhaps they will be in your area soon…if so, be sure to put a few
coins in their hands and they’ll play you a tune or two.
Willy Drynkette started singing at an early age and was
quickly asked to stop by his neighbors. His loud and very
annoying voice could be heard bellowing from the roof-tops even though
he had not yet experienced puberty. The resounding squeaks were
often mistaken for dying cats which led him to take up playing the tin
whistle…a similar sound the way Willy plays it. His voice has
since gotten better.
Phillip McGlass plays acoustic guitar and
sings harmony. His favorite beverage is any ale which he doesn’t
have to pay for. The son of Scottish parents who lost him in a bet
at the age of six, he spent most of his youth in the employ of a
storyteller traveling from town to town. Although he can’t
remember most of his younger days, he does have a vague recollection of
a sheep that was his best friend.
