Tales from the Road – Announcements, Grasshoppers and Coming Home

Some of you may have seen the news from this weekend's Summer Gathering, but just in case you missed it, the link to the news is here. What a blessing to have such a moment handled with so much thought, care, and grace. An honour to be a

Tales from the Road – Coffee Houses, Operas and Roses

So we said our farewells to the BMWC and our friends from the Czech Republic, then hopped on a train from Prague to Vienna.  I live in the South of England so my relationship with trains is somewhat tainted by my experiences with Southern Rail. However, most

Tales from the Road – Fingers, Horns, Bras and Beer

Well, it's been a while... I've just got back home from a two week tour on the European mainland. Starting with 5 days in the Czech Republic at the BMWC camp, then onto Vienna for a concert there, and finally to the Netherlands for the OBOD International

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 – 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 – Magpies, Community and Coopers Dark Ale. 

  Hello my friends! We arrived in Australia a week ago and this is the first time I've had the chance to sit down and publish anything on my blog. Time has been filled with wonderful things so I'm certainly not complaining! Over the weekend both myself and

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
