Iron age celt from the isle of Anglesey (Wales). We are often identified by our donning of pants, often in ancient plaid patterns, knot work, woad, bronze and amber jewelry, and a language the sounds like "bar bar" to foreigners.

From a modern reenactment perspective, Anglesey the SCA household has been part of Bari's family since he entered the game in 1993, and has close familial ties with many other Celtic clannes, including Galatia, Dalriada, The Concusare, and Clanne Preachain, all commonly associated with "the bog," a low lying region on the south side of Pennsic. Society participation from the people of this community varies from membership of several orders of peerage, to those who rarely make it to events despite active reenactment involvement within the clannes.

Bari enjoys bardic performances by playing the doumbek, guitar, and singing both traditional and original songs during social hours at events in order to keep the populace entertained. Styles range from his interpretations of what traditional songs may have sounded like in the iron age, to modern filks and raps about SCA topics under his alter ego The Rapin' Celt. Bari also records original medieval (sounding) music to commemorate some large events.

Sample: Wayfaring Kinsman

The last sword brother did ride a lonely horse
To a battle far beyond where he fought an endless war
His last battle cry forever will be heard
Singing through flames when the wicker man burns
His spirit will return when the wicker man burns

Bari hand crafted his leather armor kit and sewed his fighting tunics as well as many other pieces of garb. He also enjoys painting large scale celtic knotwork banners for camp decorations.

In Case of Court

Just ask me if I can make it and tell me it's important and that I should wear garb. Other than that, I'm fairly flexible.
