Online Pennsic-Themed Bardic Event
The East Kingdom College of Performers is hosting an online Performing Arts and Bardic night.
All are welcome! All Kingdoms! All places! All experience levels! Just want to listen in? Performers love an audience! August 8th, 6-10pm EDT
Unto the Performers, Bards, Skalds, Scops, Minstrels, Troubadours, Trouveres, Poets, Storytellers, Skomorokhs, Balladeers, and other entertainers of the Knowne World of the SCA (and those who aspire to be such,) greetings.
I am Grim the Skald, Crown Bard of the East Kingdom. We cannot gather this year at Pennsic due to the Plague, and I know that loss is keenly felt by us all. Prince Magnus Tindal, Heir-Sovereign of the East Kingdom, wisely suggested to me that we might have an Etherial Bardic Night where performers may regale the populace with stories, poems, songs, or other performances of Pennsic. To this end, we have assembled the means to have a Bardic Circle from isolation, and invite all performers who can entertain us on this theme. This will be held August 8th, 6-10pm. It is open to all who can perform on the subject, but we ask that you sign up in advance. You can sign up on the following form:
We ask that your performance be on the subject of Pennsic, but any aspect of Pennsic (i.e. a poem of a Pennsic battle, a song in praise of the Pennsic workers, a story about a gracious gesture by a Queen at Pennsic, etc.) is fine. All else are welcome to attend, watch, and listen to performances about Pennsic on our over-long Town Run. Performers are nothing without an audience!
