I am so very pleased to report that the first round of voting for the “Known World’s Got Talent” competition ended last night, and it has been an awesome ride. 🙂 I am even more pleased to report that….
…waaaaaait for it…..
I am in the Final Four!
I want to thank everyone who took the time to vote for me over the last couple of months, and acknowledge how appreciative I am of your support. This is the first widespread talent competition I have entered, and an international (!) one to boot, and I am humbled by the response. Thank you. 🙂
Now, you ask, where to from here?
As I understand it, the Society for Creative Anachronism has selected two judges — a founder and a bard (who happens to be none other than Heather Dale herself!) — to vet the four final entrants before selecting two to move onto the last stage. Those two entries will be announced sometime between now and December 1st. So stay tuned!
A few more words:
When my husband helped me create that video entry, I did it for fun, as a way to incorporate more period music into my repertoire and as an honorable representation of my rank as an Artisan for Wastekeep. I hoped that I would make the top four, but I did not go into it with a be-all/end-all attitude: I play and sing because I love it and get great pleasure from bringing a smile to others’ faces. Entering the Known World’s Got Talent competition was a way for me to fulfill that. So even if, in a few weeks, I find I have not made the Top Two, I remain happy, because I am a bard to my core, and I can rest assured that I have entertained people along the way. 🙂
Not to imply that I’m less than overjoyed at making the cut. Because, HOLY COW THAT’S AWESOME! 😀
All I’m saying is that from here on out? It’s gravy. 🙂
