Tales from the Road – Pagan Spirit Gathering part 2

Find Part One here ...we met my guitar and Jason at Paducah the next afternoon just fine. So all was well. Jason ended up being my flat mate for the week. I’d met him very briefly at the Michigan Pagan Gathering quite a few years back when

Tales from the Road – Pagan Spirit Gathering part 1

I first made the journey to the Pagan Spirit Gathering in 2010 when it was held in Camp Zoe, Missouri. Missouri was beautiful, but man, the heat! Now many of you will know I’m a sun worshipper, but I’m not a fan of heat plus high humidity.

Tales from the Road – Caldera Fest 2016

About a year ago I got a PM on Facebook from the podcaster David Banach who runs the Magick Jukebox podcast. He'd had an idea. To bring together as many of the Pagan musicians he features on his podcast to play at a music festival in the

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

Tales from the Road – Touching the Past

We left Hallstatt in the rain and saw a very different view as we took the boat across the lake and made our way back to the tiny train station. Hallstatt looked just as beautiful in the mist and rain. The lake and mountains like an ever changing

Tales from the Road – Hallstatt: The Place of Salt

To scholars of the Iron Age there are two places that inspire awe and wonder. Places of beginnings. Of the earliest cultures that for many years have been termed 'Celtic' (although that word does seem to have become a little more problematic over the years). These places

Tales from the Road – Walking on Glass and the Bones of the Mother

I last played in Canada in 2012 in Ontario at the Sparks Symposium so was really looking forward to getting back to that massive and beautiful country. This time I was heading west to a venue about 45 minutes outside of Edmonton. I landed at Calgary airport

Tales from the Road – Two Beltanes in one Year

I've been back from Australia for just two weeks but already the Sun's warmth feels like a distant memory. Summer to Winter in 24 hours is a little weird to say the least, but at the moment I'm really enjoying the iciness of the air, and the

Tales from the Road – Sydney, Melbourne, and the Great Ocean Road

It has been so good to be back in Australia! This is going to be a little photo blog of our journeys so far. We stayed with our friends Dave and Kelly Garland and met their lovely new baby - lots of baby cuddles ensued! Then Nick
