Wild Mountain Thyme

by Damh the Bard

Damh 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. [source]

Damh is also the relaxed voice behind Druidcast, the podcast from the Order of Bards, Ovates and Druids (OBOD).

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

 

Competition No.1 - Tales from the Crowman

The answer to Ruthie's question about the horse-lady from the Mabinogion is, of course, Rhiannon and the winner is Isabella from Germany. She will receive a signed copy of Damh's latest album.

 

New iPhone/iPad App

You can find out full details of our wonderful App on a page we have set up to describe it in full detail. It enables you to stream or download the shows on your iPod.

You lucky iPad owners also have access to some unique content with certain episodes that is unavailable elsewhere. True at the moment, until we find out how we can release the show on the Android platform!

 

King's Return

by Portcullis

We first performed at Herstmonceux medieval Festival UK in 2001 with some other local musicians. We met lots of interesting people, and quickly developed a passion for re-enacting as Medieval Minstrels/Troubadours.

In 2003 we formed Portcullis, and Jason began to put our CD together, which was released in 2004.

You can find out more about Portcullis on their Myspace page or on their Contributor Page.

 

Competition No.2 - The Book of Kells

Our second competition is about the Book of Kells and the prize is a copy of Aiden Meehan's Celtic Design: A Beginner's Manual.

 

 

Dance With Me

by Jenna Greene

"Her ethereal music is inspired by Celtic lore and nature myth. She believes both nature and music are powerful healers. Fused together, her music will take you on a journey to sacred groves, standing stones and places of beauty within yourself."

Dance With Me: is a light-hearted jig about not taking life too seriously.  I wrote this song after having a very comical argument with my husband Doug who always complained that I didn’t write enough upbeat songs.  I had always wanted to write an Irish drinking song.  This song, while having the spirit of a drinking song, has no beer consumption at all so we lovingly refer to it as my “non-alcoholic drinking song”.

Jenna can be found on Myspace, but her own website provides lots of useful information. You can find out more details about Jenna on her Contributor Page on our website.
