Saber Tompson

Saber grew up singing in choirs and church musicals and receiving instruction from professional friends and family. As a teen she received 3 years of professional voice instruction, and also picked up the bodhran with no lessons at all. She currently also sings with and manages another pirate band called Scales and Crosstones, established 2007. As a Navy brat she has bounced all over the states before her family settled in MD, where even after she moved out she decided to stay. She was gainfully employed at the Piratz Tavern in Silver Spring as “day wench". It was there that she formulated the idea for an all girls singing group, and eventually found the other members of the Misbehavin' Maidens.

Rouge is a casual singer, who participated in school choirs and sang along to the radio as she was growing up. She has never received any formal vocal training, but is quite enthusiastic about it anyway. She fell in with piracy when she became one of the bartenders at Piratz Tavern back in 2010, where she met the ne’er-do-wells who would later go on to become the Maidens. Rouge has enjoyed learning on her feet with the Maidens in her first chance to perform with a group.
