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.
I checked in with her Majesty Margarita today, and asked if she had a request for the #SCAatHome series (lots of people are using videos to connect, and it’s been truly inspiring). She requested “Shine, Child” (the first piece I ever performed for her the afternoon we met), and I’m honored to fulfill it here.
Come join your fellow performers (and other interested Scadians) for some social connection and chat while we weather our extended period of isolation. (The more the merrier – Meets have a capacity of up to 250.) Spontaneous performances might happen on occasion, but this is not a bardic circle. It is a chance to connect with people we aren’t getting to see at events.
Happy #EarlyMusicDay! People told me that I shouldn’t be worried whether my videos are perfect, as long as I share my art. Mission accomplished! Here is a new rendering of “What if a day?”
For #WorldStoryTellingDay, I have pushed through my discomfort and shared a new near-live video. My friends around the SCA are sharing content as we are all confined to our homes with the advent of COVID-19.
I got to spend the day down at Buckland Cross, which formally became a Barony today. It was a lovely, pleasant opportunity to catch up with my friends from the area, and get a little quality time with our lovely royals.
I also enjoyed the chance to play my repertoire of lute pieces in front of people, promenading unobtrusively as people were sampling the wonderful day board.
Okay, more ABBA filk might have happened. This piece was a salute to our Society members who give service. (Lyrics here.)
This morning, I finished adding closed captions to the other performances from this year’s concert and published them. [EDIT: Rather than display the individual videos, here’s a link to the complete concert, in set list order.]
