And the Wheel Forever Turns

Close the door keep out the storm, Far Away, Far Away... It's nearly here. In two weeks time the major Sabbat of Samhain will arrive, bringing with it dark evenings and opening the door to the cold of Winter. Lanterns will be lit and placed in windows. Faerie Bells will ring and doors and windows will be opened to allow the spirits of those departed back inside, to share a

Y Mabinogi – The Verve, Sawing, the Awen, and Autumn

Time for an update on the new album. The first words were written in May when me and Cerri travelled to Wales and hired a beautiful cottage. I wrote of the experience here and during that week the Awen flowed freely as words fell onto the page. My next album will be a retelling of the First Branch of the Mabinogion, the first of four albums telling the Four Branches

Good News for the Rainforest

In June I played a concert at the first CalderaFest Pagan music festival in Lafayette, Georgia. 29 bands over the course of three days and it was absolutely amazing. If you want to hear what happened I dedicated an entire DruidCast show to the festival and you can hear it here. Before the event one of the bands there, Tuatha Dea, came up with the idea of some of us

Spells and Charms

It was the Anderida Gorsedd camp this past weekend. Me and Cerri started the camps back in 2003 and our intent was to create space that focussed on magic and community. There were a lot of camps that had various workshops and rituals, but with Anderida camps we chose a subject and focussed everything upon that for the weekend. Culminating in a big group ritual on the Saturday night based

Were you a weird kid?

I'm a regular listener to the podcast Rune Soup hosted by Gordon White. If you enjoy listening to DruidCast I would thoroughly recommend checking Gordon's show out - great guests and thought-provoking discussions. The first question he asks his guests is Were you a weird kid? Damh 1 year old I was listening to the latest episode as I drove to the OBOD office this morning and began

The Story of Tales from the Crow Man

Ok, I apologise. I was looking through some of my old blog posts looking to write a few more Story of the Song posts when I saw that I had also started a Story of the Album series, got up to The Cauldron Born back in 2014, then stopped! How rude of me. Best address this right away! You can catch up with the previous articles in the series here:

Thinking About – Childhood Adventures

Yup. Feeling a bit nostalgic today and this old advert is about as nostalgic as it gets. I was thinking about the places I used to go when I was a child. It seemed that I could walk just a few minutes and I'd find some wild place. Sometimes a wood, other times a piece of barren land, or even an old derelict house. One of our favourite haunts was The
