As we gather together, offer a piece that celebrates arrival, meeting, greeting, beginning of an endeavor, etc.
(Jolicia atte Northclyfe, leader) Instrumental-only challenge welcoming novices, masters, and everyone in between.
(Kateryn Draper, leader) The fool played an important role in both story and medieval society. Do you practice the jester's arts? Do you know tales of foolish people? Or perhaps you can demonstrate the wisdom behind foolishness. All performances - juggling, storytelling, singing, etc. - that pertain to the theme of fools are welcome.
Usually the bard is the teller of someone else's heroic deeds. But sometimes the performer becomes part of the tale. Tell us of the deed of some bard, singer, or taleteller who acted memorably.
Perform a piece of period origin, presented as you choose.
Bid us farewell.
There will once again be bardic circles, Friday and Saturday.
