The Clockwork Dolls

The Steampunk World’s Fair is thrilled to announce the return of a perennial favorite, The Clockwork Dolls!

Formed in 2007, The Clockwork Dolls began with a simple concept: beautiful, epic, grand music for those who dream and dream big. From the decks of an airship to the battlefields of war, you will laugh, you will cry, and you might just find yourself singing along.

These are the stories of dreamers, the stories of warriors, the stories of freethinkers. These are the tales of people who fly.

Featuring the talent of Trinket Bramage, vocalist extraordinaire; Colette Lovelace, vocalist virtuoso and lyricist; Christopher Bass; and Allison Curval, composer and keyboardist.
