Notes about the concert

Thanks, everybody who attended the Zoom concert. That was a blast. Apologies to anyone who couldn’t get in…we had a Zoom bomber during the first song, and our hosts had to be vigilant to keep trolls from disrupting any more of the set. (Thank you, Mithgiladan!)

I’ve uploaded the video to YouTube, and edited out the vandalism. As soon as YouTube finished processing the edits, I will post the concert for people to enjoy.

bardic concert SCAatHome

Online concert this Sunday!

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.

Here is the Zoom link for the concert (available on virtually all computers and mobile devices):

I hope you can join me.

#SCAatHome: Ode to Birka

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?)

#SCAatHome: Clear or cloudy

Today’s video is a new performance of “Clear or cloudy” by John Dowland. (Yes, I did a bunch of recordings on Saturday while I had my garb on.) Stay safe.

#SCAatHome: World Enough and Time

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.

Take a Chance on Me, Pendragon Edition (#SCAatHome)

Good morning. Today’s video is a tale of the rise of the valiant young King Arthur. Epic and serious business, this.

I’m Sorry (Moana Parody – #SCAatHome)

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.

Come again sweet love (#SCAatHome)

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.

So Far Away by Carole King (#SCAatHome)

I didn’t post an #SCAatHome performance last night. Carole King’s “So Far Away” is not SCA at all, and goodness knows I’m not travelling at the moment, but it evokes the sense of yearning and loneliness that I know I feel, and I suspect a lot of other people do as well. From my heart to yours. [EDIT: Wrong link! Fixed.]

#SCAatHome: I care not for these ladies

Tonight’s #SCAatHome video is Thomas Campion’s “I care not for these ladies”, which I analyzed a little while back for the A&S Journey series.
