The Bilge Pumps roll back into Crimson & Cream Country for our 18th appearance at the Medieval Fair of Norman. This is the first "faire" we ever did back in 2000 and we've been proud to disturb the peace and quiet of the city of Norman for 3 days a year ever since!
We'll be heading back to our usual haunt at the Camelot Stage (aka the Chessboard stage) at the NE corner of the Reaves Park and we'll have our Bilge Pumps Pirate Music Shop set up nearby the stage to regale everyone with cries to come touch our booty... or at least listen to it.
We hope to see you all there... with all of your relatives... and all of their relatives... and all of their cash.
There are food, drinks, and pirates of both genders wearing their Summer best, and that's only some of the reason why we can't seem to stay away from the Texas Pirate Festival, taking place on the grounds of Middlefaire in Hillsboro.
The festival will take place the weekend after Scarborough is over, so you'll be just jonesing for one more weekend to hang out with your friends in fun and goofy getups. Allow us to invite you to that opportunity.
Come on out and spend some time with us pirates as we raid the booths next door and spend the day trying to figure out what to do a hold full of hot sauce, soap, and rawhide.
We only thought we'd damage the hearts and minds of the local population enough so they'd never invite us back to this border town. Boy were we wrong. They invited us back! That must mean we're either really good or really bad pirates. Though some of us can swing both ways.
We'll be performing 3 or so shows/day as well as the end of day Pub Sing, not to mention our own Jack the Rum Runner doubling up his shows with A Pair of Pirates to run himself really ragged. Like, ragamuffin level raggedness.
So, come on out to where the two states combine and we'll do our level best to cause sea sickness in you while you're on land.
