Bardic Madness welcome message


Welcome to

Bardic Madness XV:

Never Say Nevski

November 23, 2013


A Whole New Challenge!

Sir Fern de la Foret has issued a new challenge on the history of our Society!

See here for more details


The feast day of Alexandr Nevski is celebrated by the
Orthodox church on November 23. It seems fitting, then, that the
strong Slavic heritage of the Canton of Dun Traigh (the name
only looks Scottish) be reflected in the theme of this event.

Alexander is famously ambiguous - a saint with no miracles, a military savior who paid tribute to the Khan. Our challenges will pay tribute to this enigma.


Bardic Madness XV is hosted by The Canton of Dun Traigh
in the Barony of Andelcrag at

Howard Miller Library and Community Center
14 South Church Street
Zeeland, Michigan 49464

Many thanks go to the officers and populace of Dun Traigh
and to the Baron and Baroness of Andelcrag for their hospitality
in helping the bardic community out this year.

If you are interested in being a patron for one of the challenges,
or in teaching a class, contact the Provost.

And here is a PDF flyer for the event.

Bardic Madness is a "bardic safe zone" - a friendly place
where you may feel free to experiment and try new things. 

If you've never performed before, now's your chance. 

If you're a veteran performer who wants to branch out to
a new genre or instrument, this is the place.

You'll be hard pressed to find a friendlier and more supportive audience.
