Bring it! 

The bards of Bryn Gwlad will defend our barony's title with word and song....TO THE DEATH!


Actually, I am really looking forward to competeing again (I had to skip last year) and I encourage anyone to join in our fun.

And FYI...as it is not up on the website yet...this year the Baron is requesting two peices from the bards competing, one original composition and one period piece and extra kudos to those who theme within the event's theme of Courtly Love.

This will be my first try at composing an original piece, we'll see how that works out. Now to just get over this stubborn bought of bronchitis so I can begin my vocal practices.

I have to agree with Gerald, it was an AMAZING Eisteddfod and the most 
bardic fun I've had since Pennsic.

First, thanks to everyone who came, contributed, and participated either by 
performance or by enjoying and encouraging the performances.  While I humbly 
admit, I don't personally feel a need for a bardic college, I do feel a 
great need to keep this ball rolling.

Ok, Eisteddfod should be the pinnacle of our bardic competition but I think 
we can have just as much fun at other events.  How about it bards?  The good 
folks at Bryn Gwlad have added a bardic competition 
(http://bryn-gwlad.ansteorra.org/Candlemas/).  Who will join me there and 
blow their bardic socks off?

Consider the gauntlet thrown!    ;-)
