Windhaven hosted Bardic Madness I. We also hosted Bardic Madness X. It seems only right that the 20th Bardic Madness be hosted by Windhaven!

We offer greetings and welcome to all bards, troubadours, trouveres, musicians, minstrels, minnesingers, jongleurs, singers, storytellers, poets, skops, skalds, fillidhs, olaves, griots, wordsmiths, and friends of the bardic and performing arts!

Intriguing challenges on the theme of circles, cycles, returning, roundness, remembrance, and coming home will be open to all who wish to try their hand, interspersed with classes relating to the bardic/performing arts, music, history, and literature. Windhaven's famous cooks will provide their trademark delicious snacks and a sumptuous feast. Come to perform, or just to applaud friends and enjoy Northshield's talent and creativity.
