Seasons Change

“Welcome to Damh the Bard’s therapy session!” It’s what I say when I’m getting towards the end of Wild Mountain Thyme live. It’s meant as a bit of fun, to encourage those who might be reticent about singing along, to join in. It builds community. Brings people together. It’s what music does, as seen at

Tales from the Road – 10 Year Return


I had my first overseas concert in 2006. It was at an intimate Pagan festival in Alabama, organised by a group based in Georgia, and it really was a week that changed my life. I had two albums out at the time, Herne’s Apprentice and Hills they are Hollow and somehow one of these had

Druidry for Beginners – Beliefs


My last article in this series was back in November 2015 and this one has been prodding me for a while, but it felt like such a big topic I’ve constantly put it to one side. Modern Druidry is incredibly diverse when it comes to beliefs. How can I write about it with any real

Y Mabinogi – Strange Things


It’s true. It seems the moment I realised that I was only to focus on exploring and writing the story and songs for the First Branch of the Mabinogion (as I wrote about in this recent article) strange things began to happen.
