We had over a dozen folks together for yesterday’s bardic circle in Paramus, sharing some of the oldest and newest songs in the SCA tradition, along side pieces from the period we study and some from slightly later. Wonderful performances, great conversation and camaraderie, bards stretching themselves, and focused and constructive feedback and encouragement where it was requested. I’m really enjoying seeing the bards of the EK Southern Region starting to put down roots and establish something together.
Over on the Facebook group we’re starting a discussion about where and when we will meet during the summer months. I hope to see some of you at those circles.
