Huge Thanks to Special Guest Actors

 

Damh the Bard

Damh the Bard

Damh the Bard

Damh, taking on the role of Pendaran in the first half of our re-telling of the Second Branch, is a musical storyteller who works within the world of myth that cannot be proved; where the Faerie really do dance on Midsummer's Eve, where the trees talk, and the Hollow Hills take you into the realms of Annwn. Where the Goddess rides her horse, guiding you to magic, and the Horned God of old calls us from the shadows of the Greenwood.

You can find out more about Damh and his work on his website at paganmusic.co.uk or on our Contributor page.

 

Cerri Lee

Cerri Lee

Cerri Lee

Cerri Lee, playing the role of Rhiannon, is a multi-talented visonary artist who can turn her hand to almost anything creative. She is inspired by nature, and the ancient Pagan myths and legends of many cultures, her beliefs as a modern day Druid as well as those around her. Cerri is equally in her element when she is up to her elbows in clay or painting one of her fabulous pictures. She is partner to Druid musican and long-time supporter of our show, Damh the Bard and can be found supporting him at many of his performances.
