Tir Righ A & S and Bardic Championships

October 22, 2011
Tir Righ

Western BC, Northern WA

Autocrat: Wulfstan Hrafnsson device6759OP

Tir Righ A&S and Bardic Championships
Come witness history made as the next Scholar and Skald of Tir Righ are chosen.
-OR- if you've got a mind to stand a champion of your Principality, come and contend for the honour of being Tir Righ's new Champion of the Arts & Sciences or the Bardic Arts. Either way, come and cheer on those who put their knowledge and skill to the test.
Parameters for the A&S Competition can be found here:
Parameters for the Bardic competition are as follows:
2 (two) pieces presented before a public audience.  Both pieces must be from different genres and/or periods/regions.  For example, a Norse song and a Norse story would be acceptable, as would a Norse song and a 14th Century German song.  Both pieces must have some documentation. *Bonus points will be awarded for audience appreciation.*

There will also be a plethora of University of Tir Righ (UTR) A&S/Bardic classes offered as well. A class list will be posted (hopefully) closer to the date as the classes are finalised.

AND THEN... That very evening, stay to celebrate the new Scholar and Skald with a fabulous, not-to-be-missed feast created by HL Kensae (Kenzie) McBeighn (and if previous Kenzie feasts are any indication, this is NOT to be missed!!!). **See Feast Menu (subject to change still) at the bottom for feast and ticket information...
