"...Bard with a capital B"?
Good grief, I've become an archtype. Time to consider a court dancing 
protestant English persona. Nigel Wiggington? Rodney Fippleworth? Eh, 
I'll work on it.

  That aside, it's great that you two sing where you sit, no matter 
where you are, and it is appreciated by most everyone I know 
(Personally, I think you two are way too free with your talents. At 
least demand a drink or a meal. The price is right).
  I love that you guys just sit and sing, and encourage others to do so. 
Storytellers can't do that, just sit down and start telling stories to 
ourselves. Well, we can, but it leads to concerned queries regarding 
our mental health.
  The "Just do it" attitude is great. I completely support that line of 
thinking, but I think it is just the beginning of what Ansteorran 
performers need to consider when opening a dialogue with the larger A&S
