Menagerie consists of Jon & Lisa Butts.  They have been performing at Renaissance Festivals & Medieval Faires since 1990.  Both Jon & Lisa have carefully shaped characters; 


Master Jonathan Tone & Elizabeth Anonymous ('Lizzie Anon to her friends').

They have been musicians (stage & lane), production staff, music guild leader, washer wench guild leader, street characters, ran rehearsals, wrote scripts & much more.



Menagerie has a large repertoire of instrumentals on the hammered dulcimer, guitar, flute & penny whistle that fill the streets with lively jigs & planxtys.  For weddings they have some beautiful O'Carolan tunes & vocals. 






Perfect for Pubs Menagerie has a naughty, bawdy stage show (PG - R) filled with audience participation, dirty ditties & toasts that guarantee patrons a foot stomping, hand clapping, beer drinking good time.




Menagerie also offers a stage show of traditional vocals mixed with Renaissance Faire's favorite tunes accompanied on the guitar & penny whistle.
