BARDIC CHAMPIONSHIP TOURNAMENT
Warm Greetings from HL Bóthilðr Sigurðardóttir, Wild Rose of Montengarde, unto Their Excellencies, Peter and Brangwayn, and as well unto the Populace of the mighty Barony of Montengarde!
With Samhain fast approaching it is time to hold the tournament to choose a new Bardic Champion for Montengarde.
The requirements to vie for the Championship are as follows:
1. A letter of intent sent to Their Excellencies Montengarde (firstname.lastname@example.org) and to myself (email@example.com) or presented in person.
2. On the day of the event, at the prescribed time, perform 2 songs for the judges and assembled populace.
– One song (at least) is to be of period origin, presented with your best attempt at documentation. (Who? What? Where? When? and Why? are good things to cover)
– The second song can be an SCA song, something that you, or someone else has written that depicts life in the SCA in some fashion. Please provide a brief write up, consisting of who wrote the song, what song is the tune based on (if it is a filk), when and where the song was written, if you can find that information.
I look forward to seeing your performances!
