A Blue Plaque for Gerald Gardner

A week a go I witnessed something quite astonishing. From the outside it would appear quite mundane, not very impressive, a run-of-the-mill establishment ceremony. Just the unveiling of another blue heritage plaque on a house near Christchurch. There are loads of these blue plaques all over the country on houses where notable historical figures once

Tales from the Road – Oh Vienna!

Vienna is one of my favourite cities. It seems to have such a relaxed atmosphere, and I adore its relationship with the Arts. I guess having such famous offspring helps, and it seems to value the Arts extremely highly, and I have never felt that being a musician is an undervalued profession here. This would

Twa Corbies on video

I love to see what people do with my songs and recordings on video and I was recently sent the links to two versions of the classic folk song Twa Corbies that I recorded on my album Tales from the Crow Man. If you like Ravens you're going to love them. Enjoy!

The Winter King – Where it was written

It was like I stood outside of something, and all of these choices stood before me, leading to that final decision, and the initiation rite that would bring

I’ll be in the Woods

I saw that the Pagan's friend the Daily Mail took another stab at us recently asking if we were really innocent tree-huggers or a 'dangerous cult'. Interesting that they are still giving Paganism the column space considering that we haven't been in the news for a couple of weeks - I guess we still help

Return of a Dear Old Friend – The Mabinogion

1994 - I joined the Order of Bards, Ovates and Druids. 1995 - I saw Fiona Davidson play the harp. Went to my first Druid camp where I met Siggy, and there I played the harp for the first time. I fell in love with the instrument. I also met Andy Letcher, Bard and Storyteller,
