I have been asked to perform as part of the “Beyond the Corona” Virtual Filk Sing for the HELIOsphere Fantasy, Sci-Fi, and Anime convention (which, like so much else, will not be happening in person this year). I’ll be performing on Sunday, April 5, from 4-5 pm EDT (Facebook event here). It will be an hour of my bardic / filk / Elizabethan mix, with maybe one or two pre-Bardic pieces to round out the set. The concert is free, and open to all who wish to attend.
For those of you who missed the live performance, I recorded another lute piece last weekend while I had the garb on. It’s “Ode to Birka”. (Content Warning: Catching a bug at a crowded event, played for humor. Too soon?)
Something different for #SCAatHome today. My wife Jessica, who has been such a source of strength to me and others the last few weeks, requested one of the songs I wrote for her before I got into bardic. “World Enough and Time” was my proposal to her.
My friend Cedar the Barefoot collaborated with me on a fun little filk of “You’re Welcome” from Disney’s Moana a few years ago, and I’ve seen them perform it a few times, but I’ve never gotten around to it myself. For the #SCAatHome series, I decided it was high time. So here is a new Drake and Cedar filk. Enjoy, and stay safe.
Good evening. The lute pieces seem to be well-received (and they are giving me some thoughts about starting to transfer these skills back to guitar and learn how to accompany myself on SCA folk music). Here’s John Dowland’s “Come again sweet love”. Enjoy, and be safe.
