I'm having a lot of problems finding any information about bardic/minstrel/skaldic behavior and group practise (contests for preference). Google is clogged with SCA and game reference, and three library catalogues have produced only two articles that are only vaguely related. I need help, as my due date is running up soon. Would anyone possibly be able to direct me in the way of articles or books on the subject? It would be _greatly_ appreciated.
