Event details
The Winter Nights come early in Iceland.

Join us to mark the eve of winter, with a day of bardic entertainment in the long hall of Pierre the Gothi
(Pierre, Baron Concordia).

The long hall will be open for guests at 10am.  At 11am we will begin a day of performance and very
relaxed bardic competition in the bardic ox-hide tourney.  If you wish to test your mettle against bards
of the kingdom and the known world, the ox-hide awaits you.  If you wish to simply raise your voice for
the joy of performing and to please the bench-companions of the hall, the ox-hide awaits you.  Those
who wish to compete will be matched in head to head performances with other bards throughout the
day and a panel of judges will determine which was more proficient and more moving.  Performers
will be matched in the experience groupings of Novice, Intermediate or Advanced.

After a break for dinner, there will be a bardic circle around the fire.  At the end of the evening, His Excellency will announce his selection of Baron's Bard for the coming year.

There will be a hearty, rolling dayboard served from noon to 7:00.  There is no feast.  The dayboard is included in the site-fee, and we plan on you NOT going hungry in this long-hall.

Baronial Bardic Champions to start directly at 7:00.
