It’s good to be back with a new video for the first time in a while. With Hamilton streaming on people’s TVs this past week, I got inspired to ask My Gosling for permission to adapt another one of her brilliant Shakespeare/Hamilton filks. (There should be more where that came from in the near future. […]
Today is June 19, or Juneteenth, as it’s celebrated the Black community in America. I had started a lengthy post…and I’m deleting it. You don’t need to hear me talk about this stuff today. (Not familiar with Juneteenth? You can find anything you want to know with a quick Google search.) If you want insights […]

I have completely remixed and remastered “Tam Lin of the Elves”, featuring the magnificent Heather Dale. I love that song, and the recording is […]
I found a video I never shared out from the HELIOsphere concert. This one was written for the woman who is now my wife, back before I even conceived of being a bard. Jessica, I love you even more today.

There are issues that have been on my mind a lot for the last few years, and these issues have been thrust to the fore this past week. Some of what I have been grappling with: What does it mean to be a real ally? How can I see past my own privilege to better […]
As of this weekend, I have been Queen’s Bard of the East for a full three months–a quarter of the year that champions are supposed to serve. I continue to be honored and deeply humbled at this opportunity, and recognize the good fortune and privilege that allowed me to compete and to serve. With that […]
I’ve been quiet, right? Too quiet. Sharing my first guitar piece, been working on for a little over a month. I’m starting to work on some of my stuff too. #SCAatHome
