Other Group Gatherings

Bardic Classes & Practices

Bardic Practices are resuming. These are planned for some Sunday afternoons beginning with November 27 and December 11. Information about time and place will be posted on the facebook group. Bring an instrument if you have one (even if you don't know how to play). Bardic isn't just singing; it's music, spoken word, stories, jokes, puns, dance, juggling, and entertainment in all forms. Please RSVP to Lady Seren if you plan to attend and she will provide directions.

There will be a bardic championship at Skald the Hall, a new Myrgan Wood event, proposed for March 2017. More information will be posted in the coming months.

Beginner Hand Drum Class on Sunday February 26, 2017 at 2 PM. Please join us while Adam Hiseff takes us through a beginner hand drum class. If you have any size or type of hand drum please bring it (or consider lending it for the class, in which case Lady Seren will take responsibility for it). If you do not have a drum yourself, there will be marachas to use instead. Nathan will teach us how to use drums, keep a beat, and more. This will be followed by a bardic circle to share (all types) of pieces and discussion for upcoming Skald. Please RSVP lauramillions@live.ca She will send you the address for the private home (not hers this time) where this class will be held.


Medieval Dance Practice

There will be dance practices lead by Mistress Fabianne on the 4th Tuesday of the month, beginning February 28. These will be at the Fencing Club in a designated area beginning at 7 PM. Lady Seren is helping to coordinate these.
