In case you needed more proof that medievalists are not only talented, creative artistic souls, but also just really, really cool: Dry Island Buffalo Jump, an effort to raise money for students at Saint Andrews suffering from the financial crisis.
Flute in a rock band? Check.*
Catchy tune? Check.
Good cause? Check.
More proof that Medievalists are awesome. Thanks to Stephanie Trigg for the initial link, and I join her in applauding the efforts of Chris Jones and the band.
