This is the website for Mistress Aneleda Falconbridge, as she is known of in the Society for Creative Anachronism. It contains scroll text, lyrics, original songs and poetry, musings, and occasionally even instructions!

Aneleda lives in the Barony of Endewearde in the East Kingdom. While she may mostly be found by following the noise, she’s often sighted at her desk writing scroll text, tunes and lyrics; playing with the Northern Army; singing and middling through songs on her harp; cooking weird things; and attempting, with futility, snail husbandry. (She is not a “gross things Laurel” but gets closer every day!)

She is a Companion of the Order of the Laurel, Order of the Silver Crescent, Order of the Maunche, and Order of the Troubadour. She was apprenticed to Mistress Mira Fennor of Argyll, and is a member of Thanet House, the household of Syr Cedric of Thanet. She has been playing in the Society since 2002, her first event being the Great Northeastern War and her second event being Pennsic 32.

Aneleda’s modern counterpart, Monique Bouchard is a wife and mother, self-proclaimed nerd, SnowCon gaming convention founder, church cantor, and client relationship manger for RainStorm, a website development firm.

Her debut CD “I Am of the North” is available for purchase at
