Twisted Sisters ( Since 1992 the Sisters (five of us to be exact) have been providing hair braiding services at the nation's finest Renaissance Festivals and Art Fairs. We formed our business at the Texas Renaissance Festival with the belief that kindness, creativity and a hand crafted product sells. It did then and it still does.

Some Events That We Do

The Hoggetowne Medieval Faire is the first event of our performing season. We always enjoy the show and we look forward to seeing many old friends there.

The Texas Renaissance Festival is the biggest event that we do. The festival is open "Rain or Shine" and offers a variety of gardens, entertainment, food, merchants, shaded parking and public camping areas. The Gypsy Guerrilla Band plays for King Henry and his Court throughout the day and at Raven's Bend four times a day. Be sure to stay for the fireworks!

The Hurdy-Gurdy

Jim liked that French Massif music so much that he bought an "Aquitaine" hurdy-gurdy from George & Anwyn Leverett of Altarwind Music. Actually we bought the instrument for our 35th wedding anniversary. Jim plays it and Joyce gets a kick out of him playing it! Soon the hurdy-gurdy will be part of the Gypsy Guerrilla Band's sound.
