Joni Minstrel will teach you that whiskey and beer are the necessary ingredients for a popular uprising, that a musical instrument is all you need to become the scourge of the nobility, and that absolutely everything is the king's fault. Be amazed as Joni Minstrel Kicks the King!

She also performs more contemporary (and slightly less silly) original songs in the clubs and coffeehouses of Atlanta, GA and elsewhere. Her CD's of original "alternacheesefolk", Were You Prom Queen? and Tales From the Fruitbat Vat, are both available here on CDBaby.

Protest Fest
From her strong chest voice to witty lyrics Joni's latest CD is a must have for your ren fest music collection. Her versions of traditional tunes are also lovely and maintain the traditional feel while showcasing her own style. Join the Revolution Against Monarchy!

The Mythical Protest Singer Shines Again
Joni Minstrel aka Lindsay Smith has recorded a spare yet rich recording. The songs are crafted with care and creativity, the recording is poignant, and Joni's voice is clear and sparkling. The CD is rich with tongue-in-cheek humor, well written songs, and excellent renditions of Renaissance standards. This album will climb into your cd player and refuse to leave. If there's anything to protest, it's having to wait for another such gem to be released.

Fun, witty music for RenFaire fans
"My Own Hero" is my new favorite song; a must-have for any single woman. The rest of the songs are a great mix of original tunes with traditional. The humor, clever lyrics and upbeat rhythms ensure that this is a worthwhile buy, something you can listen to over and over.
