Tavern at the Park – Singing! And more!

Before lunch (11-12) I will be leading a practice of the Pilgrimage songs, your chance to learn or review the songs sung on our Pilgrimage at Pennsic. After lunch gather round for a sharing Bardic event: share a story or song, or request one! Want to learn or hear something? Post comments here and I’ll bring in the lyrics and/or the person to bring them alive in our circle. General or specific requests welcome (you know you want to sing our Barony song in Latin!).

–Bugga Bilibit

After lunch, we will gather round for a Bardic Circle and enjoy singing, storytelling, jokes and whatever anyone has to share. It’s fun just to listen, too!
