My name is Eleanor Fairchild, and I am delighted call myself an Ansteorran Bard. I found the SCA in 1990 at a Christmas revel in the shire of Greywood. I distinctly remember thinking that honey butter was the best food I had ever eaten, and sitting at the feet of a real live Baron, someone named Gilwell, I think. Listening to poem after story after poem with the wide eyes of a newcomer. I remember thinking, “Well, that is what I wanna do.” Since then I have been continually collecting music, poetry, clothing, and hobbies which I can somehow put to use in the Society. If you see me playing a lap harp at an event, it is thanks to my wonderful husband Don Aeron Harper, who designs and builds them for me.
It has seemed to me that bardcraft is somehow a scarce thing at events these days, and I have a newfound commitment to help revive what I can. I am very excited to share my original works with you through this medium, and I welcome your questions or comments about them. I am currently working on a recording of my original music and arrangements, though I do not yet have any idea when it will be completed.
Thank you for reading.
