A Dream Come True

In 1978 my parents dropped me and my friend off outside the Brighton Centre to see our first ever live concert. It was Thin Lizzy on their Black Rose tour. Our seats were on the left side balcony and I will never forget my first encounter with live rock music. Phil Lynott was a magical

Gratefulness, Changes, and New Memories

If you visit any self-help or mindfulness sites one of the practices they all seem to recommend is to spend some time each day thinking about the things in your life for which you are grateful. I know how lucky I am. I have a roof over my head, food in the fridge, an amazing

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

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

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

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. Dreams, strange synchronistic occurrences, big aha! moments, the melody to songs forming seemingly
