Bardcore: Modern Melodies with Medieval Music
June 23, 2020

What do you get when you combine modern pop songs and medieval instruments and vocals? Bardcore.

Hildegard von Blingin’ (a name that is, in itself, a much-appreciated history pun) has quickly been racking up the views on her new YouTube channel since late May. Her amazing vocals work really well with medieval-style instruments and the lyrical changes are really amusing without going overboard.

I just wanted to share my favorite covers because they’re just so great.

You can listen to more Hildegard von Blingin’ on Soundcloud or her YouTube channel.
