I've always loved having the musicians in court and at events as well.
The music is a real mood setter for me and I feel like I am there. My
thanks and kudos to all of the musicians in Ansteorra who have
contributed to the atmosphere of the events that I have been to in the

Having played at it myself briefly, I can say that as a performer, I
live for praise. The music at court and at other events that has been

ambiance and I for one am pleased that they are there.
