Bardic Activities Coordinators: Auda ingen ui Bhaird / Anna Lynch and Thomas Bordeaux / J.P. Andrews


This year we have been given access to the chapel for various bardic activities during the day.

10:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.
Open Bardic

Feeling like telling a story or singing a song? Have a poem or a riddle you’d like to share? Maybe you’d just like to listen to while you work on a craft? Come join us for Open Bardic. In addition to the singing and storytelling there will be discussions about the practice of the bardic arts, tips on finding source material and documentation, and a whole lot of good-natured mucking about.

12:30 – 1:30 p.m.
Tuning Clinic

This is time to put a final polish on your piece or to get feedback on any part of your performance before the Bard of Nordskogen Contest.

2:00 – 3:30 p.m.

Come and watch as the next Bardic Champion of Nordskogen is selected.
