Damh the Bard - Wild Mountain Thyme

Damh the Bard

Damh is a modern-day Bard whose spirituality, and love of folk tradition, is expressed through his music, storytelling and poetry. Drawing on the Bardic traditions his performances are both entertaining and educational, weaving a tapestry of myth, peace, and anthems that speak directly to the heart, but never without a good splash of humour.

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 outmore 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.

Portcullis - King's Return

Minstrels

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.

We have performed at Englands Medieval Festival  at Herstomonceux castle for nine years,and have entertained at weddings, banquets and garden parties.

Some of the instruments Jason plays include:
Mandola, mandolin, Bazouki (mando/cello) and drums.
Susie sings and plays recorders.
Haydon is our full time drummer, and at 12 years old does a fantastic job.
Our music and costume has an Arthurian feel to it, and  relates to 13th/14th century England.

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

Jenna Greene - Dance with Me

Jenna Greene

Greene Lady Music was founded by husband and wife team Doug and Jenna Greene to produce and promote Jenna’s original music and to teach people the holistic healing power of music.

Jenna Greene is a Celtic Pagan singer-songwriter and harpist. Her songs are inspired by hope and healing, following bliss, nature mythology, the law of attraction and the little miracles in everyday life.

 

She believes that music, nature and ritual are an empowering combination. Deeply influenced by the works of Joseph Campbell, she has studied world mythology and weaves these universal themes into her music.

Doug Greene is a sound healer and a true Aquarian, ever questing for deeper knowledge. He has intensively studied the works of Dr. Mitch Gaynor and mythologist Joseph Campbell. He brings together the wisdom of these two teachers in a refreshing and thought-provoking way. His recent studies have led him to explore the world of cellular biology and how our minds and music effect our bodies in profound ways. For over 30 years, he has been involved in ritual arts and performance arts including theater, sound and lighting design, orchestra and co-producing Jenna's debut album Crossroads.

 

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 this website.
