We tell the Dryad story and bring you even more music

This is our Spring Holiday special for 2011. We start off with a plan, and finally bring you the Dryad story that we have been promising since Autumn last year! You can also hear 4 great pieces of music - one of which is a highly sought after preview from the Dolmen's forth-coming album 'Storm'. We finish off with some Listener Feedback, a promo for another great podcast and that'll do us - back in the driving seat again!

Beltane

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.

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

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

During the show we say that Portcullis performed for us in Episode SP21, but in true fashion for us - we were wrong! :) They were kind enough to let us play The King's Return in Episode SP20.

 

Dryad

by Deborah Shinegarden


Dryad is the story of a Tree Spirit that falls in love with the music and the music of a mortal man. Deborah has been a long-term listener and friend to the show and we are proud to showcase this work of fiction for her. She is in the process of writing a novel set in 5th Century Wales.

We can't wait for that one! Thank you and good luck, Debs!

 

Spring Love

by Jenna Greene

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.

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.

 

Danny Boy

by The Dolmen

An all original set both musically and in character, their pumping rhythms derive from the best ingredients of Celtic and deep Folk, bathed in the surf of Piratical Rock. Far from the expected, The Dolmen has proudly developed an identity that puts them in their own musically unique area. They have toured and covered most of the major venues including 3 years at Glastonbury Festival amongst many others UK Festivals. Due to a recent increase of popularity in mainland Europe and the USA, the last year has witnessed the American manufacture and distribution of CD's abroad.

You can find out more about The Dolmen on their website at The Dolmen or on our Contributor Page.

 

Song of Awen

by Damh the Bard


We can do no better than finish the show with Damh singing us out with a track from his latest album, and his first live album, As Nature Intended - The Song of Awen. 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.

You can find out more about Damh on his website at Pagan Music or on our Contributor Page. You can find out more about the Order of Bards, Ovates and Druids that he represents on their website at druidry.org.

 

Listener Feedback

We listen to some feedback from Annie, who being blind, tells us of some problems she is having with the website and helps us with out Gaeilge. Thank you Annie. Annie is also well-known for her Celtic music and you will be able to hear some of her wonderful vocals in later shows.

 

Bo On The Go!

Promo

Bo on the Go Podshow

Hitch-hiking his way through the spiritual realm, Bo talks to practitioners from many different sacred and magical paths so that you don't have to. Great show that you can find on the Bo on the Go website.
