Storvik hosts a small, friendly event called Performer's Revel. It's at a member's house. We sit, we perform, we eat an awesome dinner. It's great fun, and it's this Saturday. We have once again been able to score a visit from Nana so that our childcare is taken care of - the Revel is not so great for the easily bored under-twelve set.
As Poeta, I'm sponsoring a challenge on the theme of Spring. I'll be giving out tokens to all who participate - I'm thinking about 2' of trim to make a fillet and a flower. It was just going to be flowers, but then what do you do with them? Well, with a fillet, you can wear it. The hard part will be sticking to my guns about having it be recitative. Personally, I think the distinction between poem and song is artificial, but it's there. And people who don't sing may feel that they're at a disadvantage vis-a-vis those who do. (And there's something to that. A tune can cover up defects in versification.)
As the owner of a maypole, I'll be bringing that along. A large group activity isn't the norm for the Revel, but if there is an event in Storvik where I think it would have a good reception, this is the event. I need to print out the lyrics for Official Month of Maying, Maltese Cuckoo and May Pease.
I'm looking forward to giving "To Put the Devil Into Hell" a wider audience, trotting out the Holy Pork Chop song again, and possibly debuting The Shining Time of Spring. (It might be a good lead-in to the maypole.) I have half a notion to try and whip the Bertran de Born into performance shape, but it's really close to the event at this point.
