Tourdion 1

Farewell to Bristol

It is with great regret that I must inform you that Tourdion will not be back at Bristol this season. The new management only contacted us now, at this late date, to offer us a single weekend appearance, unfortunately, on a weekend that isn’t available to us.

Tourdion has been a part of the show for the past 11 seasons, through thick and thin, and we are saddened that we won’t be seeing our incredibly supportive friends and fans for what would have been our 12th straight year.

Have a great season, everyone. We’ll miss you.


Oh, that sucks. I'm so sorry.
CARP! That sucks.

On the other hand (she says, selfishly), at least we'll get to see a bit more of you. Bonus for us.
Sorry to hear it.
It sounds like Bristol has been changing a lot in the last few years, and not for the better.
Our experience with another Faire showed us that music was gradually being demoted to 2nd class entertainment at Ren Faires -- comedy was all they seemed to be interested in -- stand-up comedy dressed up as a music act was okay, but just music was not really in demand. Also there was a shift to all BIG shows with sound systems to play to huge crowds.

Bristol always seemed like an exception to the rule, but, that may have changed now. I hope they don't go down that route. It really destroys the illusion along with the intimacy.

I hope we get to see you when we pass through the area this summer.
Sorry to hear you won't be at Bristol. Are you doing anything else that we might be able to see/hear you at?
Why do managers have to follow the idea that good things must end?

McRenFaire it is then.

What?? Well...damn!
Now we're going to have to see you off site, just like we wanted to! Can we call you and Chris when we're in town? We love playing with you! - Susan

Oooh, poop!

Crap! Who's going to sing "Johnny Miner" when someone asks for it??
