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

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,

The Awen Journey – Damh the Bard/Anderida Grove

In 2010 members of the Anderida Grove gathered to record the sacred Druid Awen chant (which means 'Flowing Spirit', or 'Divine Inspiration'). I later added drones, drums, bells, gongs and other percussion to create this hour-long soundtrack to be used for Inner Journeying. Thanks goes to the
