In association with the Gorsedh Ynys Witrin, Glastonbury’s Bardic College, Wes White will be telling all who’ll listen about the Silver Branch of Ynys Witrin (the wiggly stick of the Bard of Glastonbury)
The Bard of Glastonbury famously carries a wiggly stick. The official name for the stick is the ‘Silver Branch of Ynys Witrin’ – it is passed from one bard to the next on St Dunstan’s Day each year, like a baton in a relay into the future.
Wes White was the 10th Bard of Ynys Witrin to receive and pass on this baton. Along the way, it has been adorned, and it has worn. Things have been added and things have dropped off… here he will tell the story of those things.
