The Friday Night Concert
The Friday Night Concert is free to all attendees with a weekend registration and a Friday-only registration. You can buy tickets for just the concert for $15, but that is only necessary if you do not have a registration otherwise.
This year at Paganicon, we are pleased to welcome
Sharon Knight and Winter to the stage!
Festival Favorites Sharon Knight and Winter are internationally touring musicians in the mythic-Celtic vein. Their penchant for combining fierce and gutsy bravado with ethereal beauty, a hearty dose of fantastical lyrics, and an obvious love of storytelling has inspired their own style, “Neofolk Romantique”. This often sounds less Celtic and more “Folktales that ran away with the Faeries at the turn of the century and took cover in an old trunk bound for the circus, which was then commandeered by pirates.” This suits them fine.
Sharon’s distinctive voice and striking poetry have won her a loyal following across the country. She and Winter tour internationally several months out of the year, performing at festivals, masquerades, conventions, cafes, shops and house concerts.
They have shared stages with mythic music favorites such as Wardruna, Faun, Omnia, Corvus Corax, SJ Tucker, Tricky Pixie, Heather Dale, Wendy Rule, Stellamara, and many more. They are currently working on their eighth studio album together, called Undertow, which they anticipate being completed in Spring 2023.
The Equinox Masquerade Ball
Now strikes the balance betwixt the seasons – when the brightness of day equals the darkness of night. The Lord of Misrule and the Maiden of Spring dance together through the Halls of the Seasons, winter to summer and back again. Reveling in darkness while also welcoming brightness, they invite you to join them on this magical evening to celebrate the In Between.
Come clothed in moonbeams or veiled in stars, alight like candle glow or wrapped in shadows and mystery. Mask yourself in dark glamour or shine like the dawn. Wear an elaborate ball gown, or a t-shirt and yoga pants. Be yourself, or be someone else. On this night, all are welcome.
There will be a cash bar in the Viking Lounge, a hotel catered food bonanza in the Plymouth room at the end of the hall, and a bonfire outside.
The Equinox Ball is free to all attendees with a weekend registration or a Saturday only registration. You can also purchase tickets to just the Ball for $25, but that is only necessary if you do not have a registration otherwise.
