Minstrels: the Lute & the Fury

It can be pretty rough to be a part of the early music and re-enactment crowd…

Just like any subculture there is a very distinct set of rules and conventions. Men discussing sewing patterns and fabrics, woman drinking mead, people playing historical instruments in weird ways. Sleeping in castles and tents, traveling like a nomad from event to event. Getting weird looks when you enter a tavern in your gambeson… It isn’t for the faint hearted…

(Thanks Ian Pittaway for reminding me of this little gem)
