Phelippe le Vigneron (mka Jeff Watson) first found the SCA in 2015 when his wife, Emeline la Chauciere suggested going to this small event that required dressing up in costume. What started as a simple event turned into a hobby that has allowed him to explore myriad activities with a range of intelligent and fun people. Currently he is exploring fencing, archery, brewing, knitting, and music. He has also started writing music and performing with a small group called Dark Bardic based out of Bhakail. Otherwise you can see him on the fencing lists working on authorizing in all forms, or on the archery range working on accuracy, or with a group of musicians making lots of noise and shenanigans. Recently he has started developing his bardic arts to perform and entertain the populace at various events and courts.
He is currently apprenticed to Mästarinna Margreþa La Fauvelle for Bardic. He is also studying under Owyn Greenwood for fencing, Brendan Firebow for Fabris, and Jane Milford for Cloak. Recently, he has begin studying Fabris with Brendan Firebow.
