Badgering at Winterstock 2020

Berries, badgers and booze. And biscuits. Many biscuits!

The Brandy Badgers visited the Winterstock festival on the Landroval server last night, Sunday January 19. Us furry fellers don’t often go visit other worlds than Laurelin, but Winterstock has become a sort of annual tradition for us. It is grand fun, relaxed and non-competitive, and that’s quite perfect for us badgers. And the food vendors are very generous, even with berry pies.

So, here is an overview of the Brandy Badgers at Winterstock 2020


This year, the following took part:

  • Badgers: Ambrinna, Anerra, Galifer, Nimelia, Potty, Ragwort, Rubellita, Tibba and Wiberic
  • Badger herders: Pycella and Lina

Of course, badgers can’t talk, so they need herders along to show them the way and even sing some songs. Although, as the videos below will show, badgers are a fickle lot when traveling to festivals…


If you want to listen to the original songs the Badgers played this year, you’ll find them all in our Winterstock 2020 Spotify playlist. Enjoy!

I have seen two recordings of The Brandy Badgers at Winterstock so far.

Holly made this recording over on YouTube:


And Druidsfire made this recording over on Twitch.

Both Holly and Druidsfire makes lots of recordings from LOTRO music events (including most/all of the other performances at Winterstock this year), so their channels are well worth checking out.
