Bardcore for the discerning clergyman, noble, or muck-gathering peasant.

I am a Canadian singer/illustrator who started making Bardcore in the Spring of 2020. If you're new to Bardcore, it is a pastiche genre that takes modern songs and makes them "old-timey" through the use of Medieval and Renaissance inspired instrumentation, as well as Shakespearean-ish lyrics.
Unless otherwise credited, the majority of the instrumentals were created by me. They feature a mix of virtual and real instruments, including the Celtic harp, Irish whistle, and recorder. Several videos feature my brother, known here as Friar Funk.

Looking to use any of this channel's music in a non-profit video, play, podcast, video game mod, etc? Please go ahead so long as you provide proper credit to any of the artists included on the track. Feel free to send me an email to let me know where it's been used! Lastly, I do not take commissions, but appreciate the interest.

    "No one will know the truth." The Baron of the West pressed his fingers to Taylor's lips, eyes gleaming. "You won't get away with this." Lady Taylor whispered, turning furious, ice-blue eyes on him. "Burning all the witches even if you aren't one." "Who's to say you aren't a witch?" he replied, running his hands through her hair. "Kimberly and I have everything we need to accuse you of witchcraft." "Light me up, then." Taylor challenged. "Light me up, and I will rise up from the dead. I do it all the time." "Big words for a little snake." Baron Kanye snarled. "But only words, and nothing else." His hands brushed her face, and fire roared in her veins. Taylor pushed Kanye off. "The skies will punish you." she declared. "Frame me if you shall, I'll always be innocent. And you'll live to regret doing this." "Oh, I won't." Kanye smirked, turning to leave. In the oriental garden, Taylor pulled a golden string out of her pocket. "Forgive me, Joseph." she murmured under her breath.
