Is this true?  Bardic circles are so basic, I've always thought of them as 
ancient.  Hasn't mankind always gathered in informal groups to sing or recount 
stories?  I would think it's only been in the last few decades, as technology 
has started to overshadow this practice that it's fallen into disuse.  The 
term "bardic circle" may be un-period, but surely the practice isn't.
