Festival captures spirit of Medieval life

By RICHARD JAMES
The robust, down to earth
excitement of the festive side
of medieval culture will come
to life as the Sixth Annual Ann
Arbor Medieval Festival gets
under way here this weekend.
The public will be greeted by
banners waving, people shout-
ing and assorted performers
strolling about in bright cos-
tumes.

Every effort has been made
to reproduce a realistic micro-
cosm of the lively celebrations
that spiced the otherwise dull
and drudgery filled existence
of the common man during me-
deival times.
WITH THE market place
full of happy noisy people, all
sorts of entertainers would cir-
culate, displaying their talents
and wit while the town crafts-

men performed short plays on
a make-shift stage erected for
the occasion.
During this first weekend,
short programs about an hour
and a half long will be given
at West Park (11 a.m. Satur-
day), Burns Park (3 p.m. Satur-
day), the lawn of the Ark (11:
a.m. Sunday) and the Arbore-
tum (3 p.m. Sunday). Each of
these productions will present

portions of this summer's re-
pertoire of medeival music,
plays, dance, mime and variety
entertainment.
These four programs will
act, in part, as promotion for
the larger scale Medeival Fair
to take place the following
weekend (August 9th and 10th)
on the School of Music lawn
on North Camppus.
The performers will be joined
by local craftsmen displaying
the arts of bobbin lace making,
stoneware, manuscript illumi-
nation, wood carving, medeival
i ns t r u m e n t making,
weaving, pottery and spinning.
All events on both weekends
are free to the public.
The medeival "Art Fair" will
begin at 10 a.m. both morn-
ings of the second weekend
with the artists presenting
their wares and methods in a
medeival village designed for
the occasion by Kit Carpenter
and Barbaranne Branca.
AT 10:30 the musicians, per-
forming on period instruments,
will stroll over the hill singing

around the pond, through the
villege and down to the out-
door stage which the medieval
craftsmen will have set up for
the various performances.
For the rest of the day, un-
til dusk, the dramatic selec-
tions on stage will alternate
with musical performances in
the main hall of the castle
(the School of Music Recital
Hall).
Dancers, acrobats, jugglers,
mimes and wandering minstrels
will also entertain from time
to time. In case of rain, all
events will continue in the

Uintil Esch makes it official,
he plans to move throughout the
state, making appearances and
drumming up support at the
"grass-roots level." He empha-
sizes, though, that he will try
to remain "an effective Con-
gressman" in the process. He
indicated that lie has received a
"good reception" around the
state.
A private poll taken before
Sen Bart announced he would
not seek re-election indicated
that Esch traileud Bart in a po-
tential election but led all Re-
publican contenders. With Hart
out of the race, an Esch-Kelley
or even Esch-Austin race would
likely prove a very hot one.
But "I am working very ag-
gressively and intend to con
tinue on,"' he concluded,
