Good idea! I think something similar has been bashed around before, but can't remember...?

And I want to add Wicked Tinkers, for listening. I'm trying to put together a list of CDs for listening, and also for getting singers material to listen to for the whole spectrum of bardic.

I think An Tir put a CD together a while ago, does anyone know about that?

I really need to pull my socks up, and drag out that Google search I did.... Isn't there something out there called the SCA Bardic Sampler that has some crackerjack stuff on it?

Esther... er, Emma, I think, maybe?

  Somein Ansteorra) may know, and most may not but, somehow, with luck and a very sparse field of contestant... I won a Masque Laureate competition many years ago in Trimaris (where I USED to live) and so as a result was inducted into the Order of the Bards Laureate Trimaris.
  There are so many GREAT period style, or based upon period styles and cultural, ethnic... etc bands out there... I love the stuff myself. (even though I am an old rocker, LoL)
  ANYWAYS... Individuals in Trimaris, banded together and produced several CD's of period style or SCA period style/culture and called these the VIVAT series... Vivat I and II have been produced and distributed for quite some time... Vivat III has been in the works for a couple years now... I am not sure why, but production and completion of  this CD stalled... not sure when it is going to be released. I recorded a tune for Vivat III... maybe one day it will be released for public consumption, who knows. It is SCA time in play here.... and we all know what that means, LOL!
  ANYWAYZ... The Ansteorran Bardic Community might want to consider doing something similar... Gathering up the Bards of Ansteorra, putting together original period style and SCA style/culture tunes... and making a CD for distribution... ??????
  I am game to play!... And I can help out with recording any people who live within a reasonable distance of Friendship Ranch, here in North Texas. (Gainesville TX). 
  Does this silly idea sound interesting to any of you cwazy people out there???
  OH... I add Wolfstone and Clan na'Gael (now called Seven Nations) to the list of good music...
  best  regards

    I have to agree; Heather  Dale is a must-have for anyone.  http://heatherdale.com  She has many CDs.  In addition to her SCA folk CD, she has two which tell the Arthurian Legends.  She recently released another one that encompasses songs inspired by the cultures found on the Road to Santiago, the famous pilgrimage.
  I would also highly recommend Cantiga: http://www.cantigamusic.com.  I cannot begin to describe them.  If you do nothing else with  this email listen to one of the songs on their site.

Subject: [Bards] CDs

  Hi, everyone!

I'd like to get recommendations from everyone, about CDs, SCA, period, filk, folk, that you would recommend, and how to get them, if you know.

I'll start with some obvious suspects:

Heather Dale, Call the Names
Serious Steel, Joe Bethancourt, Leslie Fish

For not SCA specific or period  specific, but certainly worth knowing for a rollicing open bardic, drive time, and general happiness:

Golden Bough
Silly Wizard
Steeleye Span
Stan Rogers

Esther, who is rapidly turning into Emma
