Drake Oranwood (aka Eric Schrager) is a composer, singer, and medieval/renaissance enthusiast who brings modern sensibilities to original songs set long ago and far away.
In the Society for Creative Anachronism, Drake is part of the bardic community, where original and period performances are shared at fire circles and waysides for weary travelers. (The general SCA term for an individual vocal performer is a bard). Drake’s persona is an English minstrel living in the sixteenth century. Drake is apprenticed to Mistress Sofia Tyzes (called Zsof) of the Midrealm, and studied previously under Maistre Lucien de Pontivy of the East Kingdom. Drake currently serves as Bardic Champion of the Barony of Concordia of the Snows.
