About this event

Join us at Grendel’s Den Restaurant & Bar for the most apropos selection in our series with Odds Bodkin. Master Storyteller and Musician, as he tells the Olde English epic that inspired our name!

Beowulf: The Only One, Odds Bodkin’s latest epic tale, told with 12-string guitar music, is rugged, bloody and true to the original poem. Grateful to a Danish king for saving his father, a fearless Beowulf sails to Denmark to kill Grendel, a raiding demon. With Celtic harp extemporizations, Bodkin fills in the tale with some Viking history, including the Medieval Climate Optimum, even how Viking dragon ships were water-proofed.

Seating begins at 5pm for performance that begins at 5:30 PM.

The program lasts approximately 90 minutes with intermissions. Please do not plan to arrive after the performance has begun, as this is a live storytelling event that will be disrupted by late arrivals!

Venue will make an effort to seat parties together when possible. If you do not purchase all tickets for your party together, please email sayhi@grendelsden and inform us of all the names in the group that wish to sit together.


A note on our Covid related precautions:

We want to make these shows as enjoyable AND as safe as possible. That’s why Grendel’s Den has partnered with a research company to provide each attendee with a self administered rapid test for Covid-19 at the show.

All you have to do is show up. At your assigned seat you’ll receive a test that you can administer yourself. The team at Grendel’s will collect the results and let you know your results within 10 minutes. For those who prefer to opt out of testing, Grendel’s has options for you too. Please reach out to Grendel’s for any questions about this!

This way we’ll all have the peace of mind to know we are doing our best to help stop the spread.
