Festivals and Events:

"It was our pleasure to welcome back Full Gael to our Christmas Traditions by Candlelight Program at Old Sturbridge Village. From their skilled musicianship to their laid back banter between songs they are
truly masters of their craft. The resounding ovation at the end of their
performance said it all. We can't wait for our next visit from Full
Gael." -- Jim O'Brien, Program Coordinator of Special Events, Old
Sturbridge Village, Massachusetts, December 2006

"It was a pleasure working with Full Gael…The Barn dance… was the perfect addition to our festival. Your music sounds great and I enjoyed the quality of your musical presentation. I look forward to working with
you again…" -- Maureen Connolly, Event Manager for 225th Washington/Rochambeau Anniversary Weekend at the Webb-Deane-Stevens Museum, Old Wethersfield, Connecticut, 2006

"Full Gael played for us at our 2005 Festival in Portsmouth, RI. The event attracted 2,400 visitors over the two-day event….We received
nothing but compliments regarding Full Gael's performance. The band was a
real draw to the festival….The selection of music Full Gael played
really appealed to our crowd - both young and old…The quality of the
playing, the professionalism of the band -everything was exceptional.
What a real treat!" - Dandy Manning-Karaca, 2005 Chairperson, Summer
Arts Festival, Portsmouth Arts Guild (contact info available on request)

Private parties:

"I just wanted to say a final thank you for Saturday night!! The party was a roaring success, and you and your band were an integral part of that…. Apparently, the folks who were in the restaurant also enjoyed
it, and some came in on Sunday morning to find out who you are….thanks
again for making [our] party so memorable." -- Abby K.

"Thank you so much for playing at the cocktail hour of our
wedding. It truly was the best cocktail hour music we've ever
experienced….We've had tons of compliments about you and the music and
how it really set the tone for the rest of the night." - Jackie B.

Patchwork Merchant Mercenaries had its humble beginnings as an idea of a few artisans and craftsmen who enjoy performing with live steel fighting. As well as a patchwork quilt tent canvas. Most had prior military experience hence the name.


Patchwork Merchant Mercenaries.


Vendertainers that brought many things to a show and are know for helping out where ever they can.

As well as being a place where the older hand made items could be found made by them and enjoyed by all.

We expanded over the years to become well known at what we do. Now we represent over 100 artisans and craftsman that are well known in their venues and some just starting out. Some of their works have been premiered in TV, stage and movies on a regular basis.

Specializing in Medieval, Goth , Stage Film, BDFSM and Practitioner.

Patchwork Merchant Mercenaries a Dept of, Ask For IT was started by artists and former military veterans, and sword fighters, representing over 100 artisans, one who made his living traveling from fair to festival vending medieval wares. The majority of his customers are re-enactors, SCAdians and the like, looking to build their kit with period clothing, feast gear, adornments, etc.

Likewise, it is typical for these history-lovers to peruse the tent (aka mobile store front) and, upon finding something that pleases the eye, ask "Is this period?"

A deceitful query!! This is not a yes or no question. One must have a damn good understanding of European history (at least) from the fall of Rome to the mid-1600's to properly answer. Taking into account, also, the culture in which the querent is dressed is vitally important. You see, though it may be well within medieval period, it would be strange to see a Viking wearing a Caftan...or is it?

After a festival's time of answering weighty questions such as these, I'd sleep like a log! Only a mad man could possibly remember the place and time for each piece of kitchen ware, weaponry, cloth, and chain within a span of 1,000 years!! Surely there must be an easier way, a place where he could post all this knowledge...

Traveling Within The World is meant to be such a place. A place for all of these artists to keep in touch and directly interact with their fellow geeks and re-enactment hobbyists, their clientele.
