Madre Vaca – Knights of the Round Table CD Release Concert

December 5, 2023 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm EST


Once upon a time, there was a land invaded by evil: Innocent damsels captured by giants, dragons terrorizing the countryside, dark sorcerers corrupting the minds of noble knights, and enemies of the king plotting their tyranny from the shadows.

The king could think of but one way to right the wrongs and bring justice back to his kingdom. He formed an order of knights, the likes of which had never been seen before. He called forth the greatest, bravest, wisest, strongest, and boldest knights from every corner of the kingdom to fight in the king’s name, and to bring peace back to the land. These are the Knights of the Round Table.

Cast of Characters:

The Lady of the Lake – A powerful enchantress who gave the legendary sword Excalibur to King Arthur, adopted and raised Lancelot, and sealed Merlin in a cave for eternity after learning his most powerful magic through deceit and trickery. She is both good and evil.

Galahad – Lancelot’s son, the most perfect of all knights, renowned for his purity and gallantry.

Excalibur – A fearsome and terrible weapon, imbued with incredible power. However, the scabbard is even more valuable than  more
