This is the website for Læri-móðir 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 (or at least encouraging) 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!)
Aneleda enjoys camping with her early-period (ish) collective, Noorden Bruggen. Their membership is primarily Norse, Saxon, Celtic, and Mercian, with a smattering of other times and places thrown in. The collective enjoys historic cookery, music, discussion, and modern beverage alchemy.
She is a Companion of several Orders — the arts Orders of the Laurel and the Maunche and the service Orders of the Pelican and the Silver Crescent. She is also a member of the Order of the Troubadour, a Companion of the Burdened Tyger, one of the Company of the Pennon of the East, and a Baroness of the Court of Gregor and Kiena.
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 was an apprenticed to Mistress Mira Fennor of Argyll and is a member of Thanet House of the lineage of House House Ainissestor.
Her CD “I Am of the North” is available for purchase at https://aneledafalconbridge.bandcamp.com/
Her latest musical projects can be found at https://falconbridge.bandcamp.com including “By the Weight of the Chain.”
Aneleda’s modern counterpart, Monique Bouchard is a wife and mother, self-proclaimed nerd, SnowCon gaming convention founder, church cantor, and a marketing professional, content writer, and communications consultant.
