Northshield Bards Catch the Eye of the Media

Roger Larsen, of the Huron (South Dakota) Plainsman, offers an informative look at SCA life in the Kingdom of Northshield as he covers a recent Bardic event presented by members from throughout the Kingdom.

"People come quite a ways to do this. One time a year, the bards get together to do an informal competition. That's the way it was done traditionally. The bards would sing a song of a particular deed. A lot of our own oral tradition is carried on this way, too," said Scott Ingle of Cavour, seneschal of the local group.
