Eleven top fictional bands in sci-fi & fantasy

At the B&N Sci-Fi & Fantasy Blog, Meghan Ball tagged eleven top fictional bands in sci-fi & fantasy, including:
Kvothe (The Kingkiller Chronicles, by Patrick Rothfuss)

If you like your music more on the singer/songwriter side of things, you would probably go crazy for Kvothe. Patrick Rothfuss‘s incomplete trilogy of epic fantasy novels spins a heady tale of a young lute player who uses his wits and his talents to gain admittance an exclusive magical university—and relies on his playing to keep his head above water and a roof over his head in a cutthroat world of academics and powerful magics. Kvothe is obscenely talented, enough that he’s one of the rare few to win the coveted talent pipes in the ongoing talent show at the Eolian, a local tavern where musicians congregate. Lucky for us, Kvothe is also going to get the chance to spin a song on the screen: adaptation rights for the books have been acquired, and Hamiltion juggernaut Lin-Manuel Miranda (him again?) is attached to the project. With Miranda onboard, there is no way Kvothe can hit a wrong note—Rothfuss even gave the Tony-winner his own talent pipes!)
