Past and Future

       Over the years Silent Lion has performed everywhere from folk festivals to bookstores  to concert venues, including Severance Hall in Cleveland. We’ve performed for Akron First Night for many years, and for medieval dinner theaters, church concerts, and arts festivals.
Fans have found us regularly performing at Renaissance and Medieval Festivals in the eastern U.S.
In recent years our friends Michael Manderen (viola da gamba), and Rio Blue (percussion), have joined Silent Lion at the Great Lakes Medieval Faire and Michigan Renaissance Festival. Last year at Great Lakes Medieval Faire Josh Amyx, (percussion), delighted us and fans by joining Silent Lion. We count ourselves lucky to have such talented friends  contribute their gifts to our music.
