Lisa Theriot is better known to SCA members as Adelaide de Beaumont. With her rich voice and strong original songwriting, Lisa Theriot, perhaps better known as Mistress Adelaide de Beaumont (in the Society for Creative Anachronism or “SCA”), enriches the great bardic traditions of the past. On her last CD A Turning of Seasons, she not only strengthens old ballads with original music or lyrics, but also incorporates an interesting array of timeless modern songs like Joni Mitchell’s “The Urge For Going”. Her new CD “The Keys of Canterbury” is made up of all original songs that distill Chaucer’s “Canterbury Tales” into a fabulous collection of unforgettable and addictively catchy songs that still capture the traditional style and feel. click here to hear samples of her music.

Yes, you heard right. After many years of pestering, we finally got Baldwin to Raven Boy Studio long enough to lay down 14 tracks for a CD, entitled “Welcome to the Current Middle Ages”. Tracks include Baldwin originals that have become SCA classics like “The Burden of the Crown”, “Flower of the Desert” and “Welcome to the Current Middle Ages”, as well as comic pieces like “The Herald’s Complaint” and “The Wilted Rose (Song of the Old Used Queen)”. We know you’ll want to own this comprehensive collection from one of the foremost practitioners of the bardic arts in the SCA Click here to hear samples of his music.
Our newest musician is Michele Buzbee, an incredibly talented singer whose bailiwick is Elizabethan period music, though she can and does sing “anything.” We are just starting to record her music as of January 2010, so there aren’t any CDs just yet. But we will post her songs as “singles” as soon as we produce them. Check back often! Click here for her 1st RBM recording, “Sumer Is Icumen In”
