The Esgaroth Three is a musical comedy group from Wellington, New Zealand, known for their Middle-earth parody videos Who the 'Ell Is Tauriel? and Dwarf On A Pig.



The group gained praise for their debut video, Who The 'Ell Is Tauriel? from international science fiction and fantasy reviewers, and mainstream press, being described as "drolly trollish" on BBC America's Anglophenia website, "brilliant" and "hilarious" by SciFiNow magazine, and "delightfully nerdy" on TheOneRing.net.


  • Christopher Winchester – guitar, ukulele, vocals, clarinet, kazoo, percussion, drum and bass programming
  • Carlton McRae – guitar, backing vocals
  • Dwarf On A Pig

    The Esgaroth Three's second music video release Dwarf On A Pig was published on YouTube in December 2014. Like Who The 'Ell Is Tauriel?, the cast of the video is made up of extras from Peter Jackson's Hobbit films, but only Winchester is credited as responsible for the musical performance, with McRae listed as "Orc fodder in absentia".
