The New World Renaissance Band is the creation of one Owain
Phyfe, and how great is that? I mean really; if a name is destiny,
how could someone with a name like that end up as something modern?
You don't meet too many tech support guys named Owain, now do you?
No, it's better that he roam the country's Renaissance Faires, with
his voice and his chitarra batente, whatever the heck that might be.
As for the music (you were wondering if I'd ever get to that), it's as
authentic as you'd want. Which is to say, not entirely. And that's
goodness, 'cause as far removed as we are from whatever time it is
the Ren Faire is supposed to represent, we wouldn't enjoy the real
thing nearly as much as something adjusted for our more modern
sensibilities. At least that's what Owain says. And if you can't
trust a guy like Owain, what hope is there for the world?
