In other bardcore news, Brandon Acker covers Polyphia's "Playing God" on lute, and here is a great vid of Brandon discussing his absolutely ludicrously sized theorbo (14-string, nearly six foot long lute) with Rob Scallon.

Reminds me a little of the far sillier "Beowulf Meets Godsylla."

I believe this came up in the last Kate Bush thread, but a fun fact is that Ms. Bush owns every shred of the rights to that song, both the writing and the recording, and she totally and solely controls licensing. She is getting fucking paid with its resurgence.
