Have you performed in front of an audience?
In the SCA, most of what we do is live performance. I've become a concert performer, as well as a competitive bardic champion. Sharing the stage with Heather Dale at the Pennsic War was an incredible experience, first when she invited me to be a featured guest at her concert, and again a couple years later when she performed "Tam Lin of the Elves" with me at mine. Having artists such as Ken and Lisa Theriot and Efenwealt Wystle onstage with me for my concerts has also been incredible.
Your musical influences
Heather Dale, Ken and Lisa Theriot, S.J. Tucker, Heather Alexander, Leslie Fish.
