Fishe or Fowle is Kate and Corwen's new duo CD. It is a double CD with 25 tracks. Available now, as a physical CD from their website or to download from Bandcamp. They are musicians, instrument makers and workshop leaders who perform folk music and drama, recreate Ancient music and instruments, make crafts, run workshops for schools and demonstrate at museums and other events. You can find out more about these talented folks on their website or on our Contributor Page.   Trip to Skye/Dance to your Daddy by Mike Gulston This beautiful Medley is made up by Mike's version of Trip to Skye, that he has sped up to a Mazurka rhythm and a beautiful rendition of Dance to your Daddy. He has written his own extra verse to this traditional English folk song. Mike's new solo album, Barking, was released in May 2016, an eclectic collection of traditional and modern songs, ranging from totally silly to tragic, romantic and singalong. For more details about Mike, and his work with Blanche Rowen, see their website or our Contributor Page.   British Witch Legends of Sussex by Shaun Cooper The book includes over sixty Sussex witch legends, mostly in their original texts, and they are compared with witch legends from the rest of the country - so the book is essentially a comparative study of witch legends, albeit with a very strong Sussex emphasis. Other subjects covered are: Sussex fairy and Devil legends, and dragons, Roman roads, the origins and dissemination of witch legends, and so forth. You can see an interactive map of this area on Google Maps or download the KML file for Google Maps/Earth. You can find out more about Shaun and where to get hold of his book on our Contributor Page on with his Publisher, Country Books. We discuss which tribes might fall into the categories of Iron Age 'A', 'B' and 'C' Celts that are referred to in the reading. Although there are some discrepancies with the dating, the history does make sense when compared with the movements of the Atrebates, Catevellauni and Cantiaci tribes at the time of the Roman Conquest of Britain (A.d. 43). Our sources are: http://www.historyfiles.co.uk/KingListsBritain/BritainAtrebates.htm http://www.historyfiles.co.uk/KingListsBritain/BritainCatuvellauni.htm http://www.historyfiles.co.uk/KingListsBritain/BritainCantii.htm http://www.historyfiles.co.uk/KingListsBritain/BritainRegninses.htm https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Atrebates https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Verica https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cantiaci https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Regnenses   Faerie Tale by Spiral Dance Multi-award winning group Spiral Dance, based in Adelaide, has been playing rousing, high-energy music to enthusiastic audiences throughout Australia and beyond for over a decade. With a combination of haunting vocals, evocative fiddle, intoxicating guitar riffs and groovy accordion lines, underpinned with potent bass and dynamic percussion, the band presents an eclectic blend of traditional folk-rock with powerful self-penned songs and tunes. Enchanting melodies intertwine with mythical tales that are sure to captivate your soul, tease your mind and steal your heart, casting your spirit into the realms of magic and the mists of ancient time. We are privileged to bring you the evocative track, Faerie Tale from their album Magick, for our Sussex Celts Show, and you can find the lyrics on their site. You can find out more about Spiral Dance on their website or on our Contributor Page.   Scarborough Faire by Jenna Greene & Kellianna Kellianna is an American Neo-Celtic singer and songwriter internationally renowned for her powerful performance of song and chant inspired by myth, magic, sacred places and ancient times. Jenna Greene, "The Greene Lady", is a weaver of musical myth and magic. With a voice that is both ethereal and soulful, she sings of ancient lore, finding wonder and following dreams. Scarborough Faire is just one of the heart-lifting traditional folk songs on the wonderful collaborative album, Traditions, by Kellianna. You can find out more about the Kellianna on her Contributor Page or more about Jenna Greene on her Contributor Page. We talk about the origins of the original Scarborough Fair and the significance of the Parsley, Sage, Rosemary, and Thyme herbs.   Cold Iron from 'Rewards and Fairies' by Rudyard Kipling Rudyard Kipling was an English journalist, short-story writer, poet, and novelist. Kipling's works of fiction include The Jungle Book (1894), Kim (1901), Puck of Pook's Hill (1906) and many short stories, including "The Man Who Would Be King" (1888). His poems include "Mandalay" (1890), "Gunga Din" (1890), "The Gods of the Copybook Headings" (1919), "The White Man's Burden" (1899), and "If—" (1910). He is regarded as a major innovator in the art of the short story; his children's books are classics of children's literature, and one critic described his work as exhibiting "a versatile and luminous narrative gift". Rewards and Fairies is a historical fantasy book by Rudyard Kipling published in 1910. The book consists of a series of short stories set in historical times with a linking contemporary narrative. Dan and Una are two children, living in the Weald of Sussex in the area of Kipling's own home Bateman's. Bateman's, Sussex They have encountered Puck and he magically conjures up real and fictional individuals from Sussex's past to tell the children some aspect of its history and prehistory, though the episodes are not always historically accurate. Another recurring character is Old Hobden who represents the continuity of the inhabitants of the land. His ancestors sometimes appear in the stories and seem very much like him. The full text of Rewards & Fairies can be found on Project Gutenberg. For more details about Rudyard Kipling visit the Wiki Page or Kipling Societ's website.   Shakespeare's Puck & Sussex Pharisees We discuss how Shakespeare may have heard the folklore of Puck on his travels with the Elizabethan court. The local Sussex word for Fairies, Pharisees, comes from the double plural found in the dialect - 'fairies-ies' or 'pharisees'. "Then we have 'Puck' or 'Pook', which is derived from the Saxon word 'Puca', meaning a Goblin (Smith 1956 p.74). Both modern forms are common in placenames as will be seen later in this article, but also occurs as dialect description of fairies, but not just Goblins, which are seen as mischievous or nasty fairies (Simpson & Roud 2000 p.286). 'Dobbs' or 'Master Dobbs' is a name used for a house fairy that helps with the housework. If someone has been working harder than expected, it was often said of them that 'Master Dobbs has been helping you' (Parish & Hall 1957 p.31)." [Sussexarch.org] Iron from Stone by Damh the Bard This song, Iron from Stone, is inspired by the earlier song, Scarborough Faire. Damh tells us: "Scarborough Faire is an amazing song. Such a wonderful melody and lyric that tells of all of the impossible tasks a human woman would need to achieve to be with a man from Elfland. But I began to wonder… "These wonderful folk songs have been left us by anonymous writers from years ago and have been sung ever since. But is there another story behind Scarborough Faire? What about that songwriter from years ago? What inspired them to write such a song? So I thought I would tell that story." Damh the Bard You can find his music on iTunes, or from his website, Pagan Music. He is also the voice behind Druidcast, the official podcast of the Order of Bards, Ovates and Druids (OBOD, for short) - modern day Druids. You can find Druidcast here and find out more about OBOD here. You can find out more details about Damh on his Contributor page on our website. Cold Iron by Rudyard Kipling Puck, Dan & Una "Cold Iron" is a poem written by Rudyard Kipling published as the introduction to Rewards and Fairies in 1910. In 1983, Leslie Fish set the poem to music and recorded it as the title track on her fifth cassette-tape album. Song of the Travelling Fairies by Kate Fletcher & Corwen Broch Song of the Travelling Fairies is a Manx lullaby collected in 1930 by Mona Douglas from Caesar Cashin who said that after each verse there used to be a little dance imitating the movements of the particular bird named. It comes from Fishe or Fowle - Kate and Corwen's new duo CD. It is a double CD with 25 tracks. Available now, as a physical CD from their website or to download from Bandcamp. Listener Feedback from Natasha in Portsmouth We play some Audio feedback from Natasha in Portsmouth who recommends the lovely music of Lisa Thiel. There are fairies at the bottom of our garden by Rose Fyleman, read by Amielia Rose Fyleman (1877–1957) was an English writer and poet, noted for her works on the fairy folk, for children. Her poem There are fairies at the bottom of our garden was set to music by English composer Liza Lehmann. This classic, famous and iconic poem first appeared in her book, Fairies and Chimneys, in 1917. It is read here by our 9-year-old grand-daughter, Amielia who makes her reading debut on our Show!

Drawing on the Bardic traditions his performances are both entertaining and educational, weaving a tapestry of myth, peace, and anthems that speak directly to the heart, but never without a good splash of humour. Damh is a musical storyteller who works within the world of myth that cannot be proved; where the Faerie really do dance on Midsummer's Eve, where the trees talk, and the Hollow Hills take you into the realms of Annwn. Where the Goddess rides her horse, guiding you to magic, and the Horned God of old calls us from the shadows of the Greenwood. [source] Damh is also the relaxed voice behind Druidcast, the podcast from the Order of Bards, Ovates and Druids (OBOD). You can find outmore about Damh and his work on his website at paganmusic.co.uk or on our Contributor page. Cerri Lee Cerri Lee is a multi-talented visonary artist who can turn her hand to almost anything creative. She is inspired by nature, and the ancient Pagan myths and legends of many cultures, her beliefs as a modern day Druid as well as those around her. She can create anything from Rights of Passage gifts and altar pieces to wedding and birthday gifts, and will happily take on commisions. Each piece of artwork she creates is individual and can be personalised to you or your loved ones. Her artwork has been used for album covers, featured in leading Pagan magazines, used as tattoos, and her sculptures are sent throughout the world. Cerri is equally in her element when she is up to her elbows in clay or painting one of her fabulous pictures. She is partner to Druid musican and long-time supporter of our show, Damh the Bard and can be found supporting him at many of his performances.

CMP031 Face to Face with Death

The ashen face of Death turns his gaze upon our hero! In the last episode, Pwyll had gone hunting in the Woods of Glyn Cuch and had been beaten to the kill by a stranger pack comprising even stranger dogs. Having decided that the kill was rightfully his, he had driven off the other pack and set his own dogs upon the prey. It was at that moment that a stranger, the Shadowed Hunter, has appeared and was even now turning his dread gaze upon Pwyll. We'd also like to introduce our Special Surprise Guest Actor, Damh the Bard, who plays an important role in this show! This episode is the second episode in our Welsh Mythology series and continues with the story of Pwyll, the Prince of Dyfed.

We also re-play the interview that Paul Stenton of BBC Camridgeshire's breakfast show had with Sarah Stannage of Vivacity and Lisa Westcott-Wilkins, the Managing Director of DigVentures. Built by Bronze Age people as a place of worship and ritual, the causeway contains 60,000 upright timbers and 250,000 horizontal planks buried underground along with many swords and other personal 'offerings' to the watery fen. Now under threat of being lost to the elements, it is a matter of urgency to Rescue and research as much as possible within the remaining time. See how you can help the project and get involved on the DigVentures site.

The area of the Wales that Pwyll rules is called Dyfed, and at the estimated time of the writing of the First Branch (during the Medieval period). There is some debate as to the area of the original seven cantrefs, and Wiki provides us not only with a revised version but also names the seven areas. This is the area as it was known in the 7th Century and although the tales were not written down until the early medieval period, there is much evidence - linguistic and political - to suggest that the events recounted in the Mabingion, based on real events and/or mythology, took place at this time.

The actual journey that Pwyll makes in this episode is derived from clues given within the various translations and is, essentially, an educated guess! :) However, below you can see the path that Pwyll would have taken in traverlling from Arberth to Glyn Cuch.

CMP Special 30 Beltane/Spirit of Albion Interview Show

We interview the Director of The Spirit of Albion movie In this show, we hope to bring you the second of our special features about the mythic film, The Spirit of Albion: the Movie and celebrate Beltane along the way! We meet Damh the Bard, who created the songs used in the films and Gary Andrews, the Director, Author and Editor for the film. We managed to meet them on a nice, quiet afternoon in the beautiful country pub, The Giant's Rest which is almost at the feet of the mighty giant known as The Long Man of Wilmington, a huge chalk figure that makes his acting debut in the film to have a fun chat about the film. The film will premiere a couple of days after this show is released and we'll all get our chance to see this long-awaited production!

The Song of Amergin - Lyrics I am a wind in the sea I am a sea-wave upon the land I am the sound of the sea I am a stag of seven combats I am a hawk upon a cliff I am a tear-drop of the sun I am the fairest of flowers I am a boar for valour I am a salmon in a pool I am a lake in a plain I am the excellence of arts I am a spear that wages battle with plunder. I am a god who forms subjects Who explains the stones of the mountains? Who invokes the ages of the moon? Where lies the setting of the sun? Who bears cattle from the house of Tethra? Who are the cattle of Tethra who laugh? What man, what god forms weapons? Indeed, then; I invoked a poet... a poet of wind. There are many different translations of The Song of Amergin, which is perhaps the best known piece of all ancient Celtic poetry. With great thanks to the inestimable Mary Jones for her enthusiasm and scholarship, we can present what is possibly the best translation of the earliest transcription. Mary has also written and excellent and thought provoking piece about some of the symbolism in the poem which can be found along with some of the other translations that we found in our Resources section.   Sources used in this Episode Gods and Fighting Men, Lady Gregory, Sacred Texts and Chap. 10 The Book of Invasions, Mary Jones The History of Ireland, Geoffrey Keating, Google Books The Song of Amergin, All About Irish The Song of Amergin, Amergin.net The History of Ireland, Geoffrey Keating, Books I-II, CELT The Book of Leinster, CELT And, of course, the Awen - inspiration and imagination!   Special Thanks For voice acting: Edward, our son, as Eber Donn.

He says: "While looking for Dutch audio, I discovered podcasts. When investigating the iTunes directories, I soon discovered the history and science podcasts I came to like so much. Among the first were Berkeley's History 5, Shrink Rap Radio and the Dutch podcast Simek 's Nachts. After many months of listening, I began this blog and dedicated it to reviewing the majority of podcasts I find."   Sources used in this Episode Timeless Myths http://www.timelessmyths.com/celtic/invasions.html#DanannArrival Lebor Gabala http://members.aol.com/lochlan2/lebor.htm The Irish Tradition http://members.aol.com/lochlan6/mlegend1.htm The Battle of Moytura http://www.maryjones.us/ctexts/1maghtured.html The Second Battle of Moytura http://www.ucc.ie/celt/published/T300011.html Lebor Gabala Erenn http://www.maryjones.us/ctexts/lebor4.html#55 The Coming of the People of Dana http://www.celtic-twilight.com/celts/rolleston/chapter_iii.htm Fight with the Fir Bolg http://www.sacred-texts.com/neu/celt/gafm/gafm03.htm And, of course, the Awen - inspiration and imagination!   Special Thanks For voice acting: Edward and Morgan, our sons For incidental music: Diane Arkenstone, The Secret Garden .

Music and News about what we have been doing! We bring you a Special music show and some news about what we have been doing while we were away, what our plans are as well as 6 amazing pieces of music and a superb piece by Professor Roland Rotherham about St. Nectan, the Cornish saint. Running Order: Blanche Rowen & Mike Gulston 2:26 Katie Nicholas & Cernunnos Rising 7:00 Celia 12:08 Roland Rotherham 18:09 Kate Flecther & Corwen Broch 35:27 Julia Ecklar 42:29 Damh the Bard 49:28 We mention the Professor's other appearance on our show at http://celticmythpodshow.com/ladiesofthegrail We hope you enjoy it! Gary & Ruthie x x x It's always great to hear from you! Email garyandruth@celticmythpodshow.com, or leave us a message using Speakpipe   1. Northill May Song & Mwynen Mai by Blanche Rowen & Mike Gulston A pair of May Carols. The custom of 'going Maying' included leaving hawthorn blossoms at your beloved's door on May Day morning (assuming you hadn't been out in the woods with her all night). 'Mwynen Mai' (Gentle May) is a jolly little polka with our freshly translated English lyrics. (from The Dance Goes On liner notes) Buy The Dance Goes On from Bandcamp   2. The Fairy Glen by Katie Nicholas & Cernunnos Rising Katie Nicholas, the youngest daughter of George Nicholas from Cernunnos Rising, is the lead vocalist on this beautiful new track, The Fairy Glen. Born and bred in Liverpool, Katie (20) moved to London at the age of eighteen as an integrated ad-designer (JWT London) and pursues her music as a country-pop singer/songwriter, runs Busy Bee - an online community helping independent artists create a “buzz”, plus more alongside her 9-to-5; with the aspiration to do her passion full-time. [source] You can find out all about Katie and her work, including her superb album, Dizzy, on her website.   3. Song For Ireland by Celia Celia's album, Fire in the Head, is a compilation of some of the finest Irish songs. She adds her unique style to the presentation of classic Irish music, and you can hear her track Song for Ireland in this show. You can get hold of Fire in the Head from Bandcamp or CD Baby.   4. Sacred Falls: Saint Nectan & the Legacy of the Dragon by Professor Roland Rotherham St. Nectan's history, the legends of his almost endless family and the sacred site of Nectan’s Glen, holding as it does the beautiful ‘Falls’, are explained in this narrative together with a possible link between Saint Nectan’s family and the warlord who may be attributed to the later legends of King Arthur. The book also deals with the history and legends of many of Cornwall’s other sacred wells and springs. You can buy Sacred Falls from the St. Nectan's Waterfall Online Shop.   5. The Laily Worm & the Machrel of the Sea by Kate Fletcher & Corwen Broch Kate & Corwen met in the 10th century playing at a medieval banquet. Their compatible collection of ancient reed instruments inspired love at first parp.The fact that they also had similar collections of Finnish pop cemented the relationship. Since meeting they have walked pilgrimages to Spain, across Norway, rebuilt Kate's narrowboat and played lots of music. They are currently recording their first duo CD, Fishe or Fowle. You can find out more about Kate & Corwen on their website or on their Contributor Page.   6. Native Son by Julia Ecklar Native Son is a song about a sheep-dog. Stepping out into a pasture of sheep is like pushing the membrane between two worlds. The dog starts to shiver violently at the first whiff of musty wool. The shadows, the wind, the turn of your head and the force of the dog's silent gaze is part of a cacophony of pressures that push or bounce against each other. You can sense where to push against these masses of energies to make the sheep and your dog move ina direction you choose. The ability to feel and see these energies is stitched into your dog's DNA. You don't teach him how to use this knowledge - he teaches you. It's why he was made, and all he wants to do. (From the CD liner notes] Buy Horsetamer from Prometheus   8. Forgotten, Never Be by Damh the Bard Forgotten, Never Be is a song about the traditions and customs that we cherish in our cultures. It is a masterful piece from Damh's most recent album, Sabbat. This new collection of songs harks back to Spirit of Albion and The Cauldron Born. The anthems have a folk-rock feel, and the ballads have even more depth and meaning. The inclusion of the classic folk song Scarborough Faire and a cover of Lady in Black by Uriah Heep makes this an album that will surely please old and new fans of Damh’s music alike. You can get hold of Sabbat from CD Baby.

Philip Shallcrass Part 2 of our Interview Greywolf inside Roundhouse In this part of the Interview Philip talks about the Celtic connections of Druidry, shamanism and sweat lodges and reveals how he got the name of 'Greywolf' Philip, Joe & Us - pic by Mike Shallcrass Song at Wodnesbeorg Philip Shallcrass The Sign of the Rose The Sign of the Rose is an album of songs, spells and invocations from BDO chief, Greywolf, aka Philip Shallcrass. "Beginning with an invocation to the old Saxon gods of Britain, it moves into ‘Song at Wodnesbeorg,’ a song inspired by Greywolf’s meeting with Woden on an ancient burial mound in North Wiltshire. Next is an invocation of Awen, the sacred, flowing spirit of inspiration in our tradition. This is followed by a hymn to the divine feminine, ‘Lady of the Greenwood.’ Track 5, ‘Lover’ and the title track, ‘The Sign of the Rose,’ are lyrical love songs. ‘Autumn Spell’ is a prayer for healing, followed by ‘Hel’s Embrace,’ reflecting on the dark side of relationships, while the next track, ‘A Perfect Mirror,’ deals with love’s ability to find itself reflected in another’s soul." "‘Slide’ is an out-and-out rocker with some bitchin’ slide guitar work. ‘Sacrifice’ muses on what we may or may not be willing to give, or give up, for love. ‘Thanks’ is an expression of gratitude for the sheer strangeness of being alive. The final track, the 12-minute epic, ‘The Sweet Sorrow,’ is a tragic tale of love and loss, based on a traditional Scots ballad of the same name, here given a makeover with layered harp, bass, percussion and strings." [source] Listener Feedback Sean We play some super Listener Feedback from our old friend, Sean MacDhai! We mention that we started chatting to Sean on our Forums, but forgot to also mention that the forums have long since been taken down.

Gary & Ruthie x x x Released: 23rd Aug 2010, 41m It's always great to hear from you! Email garyandruth@celticmythpodshow.com, or leave us a message using Speakpipe   Shades of the Green by Claymore High-energy and committed!!! England born Chris, as well as Jim and Derrek like to enjoy ourselves, and like to get everybody around us to have a fun time, but we also are very dedicated musicians. Although it may seem like Claymore is just about jumping around and not appearing serious, all of us are committed to being the best at what each of us do. We have our regular drummer Don (Otto) Wilson out with us on most occasions also. We are truly passionate about the music. We are also very grateful for our family and friends, who come out or support us in many different ways. You can find out more details about Claymore on their website or on their Contributor Page on our website.   Fairies by Walter Gregor (1881) This section comes from the book 'Notes on the Folk-Lore of the North-East of Scotland' and the introduction says: This is an ethnographic study of the inhabitants of the North-Eastern area of Scotland in the mid-19th century, at a time when an agrarian, barter economy still prevailed. Life was hard among these remote coastal communities, and they lived in fear of maleficent witches and the 'Evil Eye'. Many of the rituals, taboos and folkways in this book are to ward off witchcraft directed against economic mainstays such as livestock and fishing. The book has many fascinating bits of lore, as well as extensive oral poetry, all in Scots dialect. (There is, thankfully, an extensive glossary at the end, in case ye're na sure what all the clatterin's aboot.). There are also detailed descriptions of holidays, weddings, and other celebrations, which reveal that life was not completely grim. [Sacred Texts] The chapter we read from is specifically about Fairies and customs associated with them. [source]   King of the Fairies by Anne Roos Anne has graciously allowed us to play King of the Fairies which is a superb folk piece from her album, A Light in the Forest. More details about Anne and her albums can be found on her Contributor Page.  Anne’s music repertoire spans traditional Celtic (Irish, Scottish, Welsh), English, folk, religious and secular, Early, Renaissance and classical music, to Broadway, contemporary, pop and Jazz, and is virtually unlimited. She can easily provide the traditional “Canon in D” and “Here Comes the Bride” for a wedding processional, and play classic Frank Sinatra or Metallica at a reception. Her ability to faithfully play such a broad range of musical styles has helped to establish her popularity. Visit Anne's website celtic harp music or find more details on her Contributor Page.   Summer by Alexander Pope, 1709 Alexander Pope (21 May 1688 – 30 May 1744) was an eighteenth-century English poet, best known for his satirical verse and for his translation of Homer. He is the third most frequently quoted writer in The Oxford Dictionary of Quotations, after Shakespeare and Tennyson. Pope is famous for his use of the heroic couplet. [Wiki] The poem comes from the wonderful poetry.about.com. Summer from the Second Pastoral See what Delights in Sylvan Scenes appear! Descending Gods have found Elysium here. In Woods bright Venus with Adonis stray’d; And chast Diana haunts the Forest Shade. Come lovely Nymph, and bless the silent Hours, When Swains from Sheering seek their nightly Bow’rs; When weary Reapers quit the sultry Field, And crown’d with Corn, their Thanks to Ceres yield. This harmless Grove no lurking Viper hides, But in my Breast the Serpent Love abides. Here Bees from Blossoms sip the rosy Dew, But your Alexis knows no Sweet but you. Some God conduct you to these blissful Seats, The mossie Fountains, and the Green Retreats! Where-e’er you walk, cool Gales shall fan the Glade, Trees, where you sit, shall crowd into a Shade, Where-e’er you tread, the blushing Flow’rs shall rise, And all things flourish where you turn your Eyes. Oh! how I long with you to pass my Days, Invoke the Muses, and resound your Praise; Your Praise the Birds shall chant in ev’ry Grove, And Winds shall waft it to the Pow’rs above. But would you sing, and rival Orpheus’ Strain, The wond’ring Forests soon shou’d dance again, The moving Mountains hear the pow’rful Call, And headlong Streams hang list’ning in their Fall! But see, the Shepherds shun the Noon-day Heat, The lowing Herds to murm’ring Brooks retreat, To closer Shades the panting Flocks remove, Ye Gods! and is there no Relief for Love? But soon the Sun with milder Rays descends To the cool Ocean, where his Journey ends; On me Love’s fiercer Flames for ever prey, By Night he scorches, as he burns by Day. Herne by Jenna Greene "Her ethereal music is inspired by Celtic lore and nature myth. She believes both nature and music are powerful healers. Fused together, her music will take you on a journey to sacred groves, standing stones and places of beauty within yourself." Herne is a Celtic god who embodies masculine energy. He symbolizes the dark time of the year. Autumn is his time of power. I always think of this beautiful myth when the autumn leaves begin to fall. Jenna can be found on Myspace, but her own website provides lots of useful information. You can find out more details about Jenna on her Contributor Page on our website. Listener Feedback We play some audio feedback from Tim, the Reverend Sylvanus Treewalker who is the host of Pagan Persepectives on Blog Talk Radio. The show was re-launched on the 22nd August and we hope to have a new promo to play you soon. The Revered Sylvanus Treewalker presents the Pagan Perspectives show. He presents a show that deals with issues that Modern pagans deal with. Also he will discuss traditions and practices of many different Pagan groups. You can find out more about the Pagan Perspectives on their website. They also have an online social community on the Ning network.

This is obviously a ritual inventory or dialogue that would not be hard for the Celt to hear as all the place names would hold meaning for them. Trefuilngid:    True indeed, O Fintan, you are an excellent shannachie in holding the memory of this land. It is thus that it has been, and will be for ever, namely: Her learning, her foundation, her teaching, her alliance, her judgement, her chronicles, her counsels, her stories, her histories, her science, her comeliness, her eloquence, her beauty, her blushings, her bounty, her abundance, her wealth — from the western part in the west.

The dream feels so real she must force herself to get a grip. This experience is just the beginning for Eve, a Los Angeles clinical hypnotherapist and researcher investigating whether reincarnation is fact or fiction. Unstoppable visions of an ancient lifetime steal days from her. The danger escalates when she wakes up physically injured and marked with a strange symbol. While Eve battles the past to maintain her sanity and safety, her project is jeopardized as another researcher’s attempts to take over. One partner dies and another is accused of inappropriate conduct. Eve and her friend, Dr. Andrea McMurray, don’t believe in coincidence and probe their shared visions for answers. On the other side of the Atlantic, Welshman Ryerson Sanders is haunted by his dreams and believes Eve’s research project can help him. For both of them, an ancient Celtic prophecy and long-sought revenge entangles the past with the present. A druidess and a shape-shifter must join to save the druid way of life, while a queen conspires to kill Erin’s only high king. Will the oaths and agendas of the past reach across the centuries to strengthen or to destroy? Find the book at Podiobooks.com and at themarkofadruid.com.

CMP Special 25b Irish Mythological Cycle Summary Pt 2

Second half of our summary of the Irish Mythological Cycle In this show, we finish off our summary of the Irish Mythological Cycle as we've met it so far in the first 29 story episodes. Not only is this show finishing off a whole branch of Celtic Mythology, but it also celebrates the Autumn Equinox for 2011, so we've made it a real cracker and split it into two halves. In the first half, you heard an epic poem, 4 great songs and we took a look at the Origins of the Manuscripts which these stories come from and highlight some of the the themes we've noticed in the stories. We conclude our examination of the Irish Mythological Cycle in this Second Part of this show by looking at the main characters in the stories, finishing the epic saga of Greenwood the Bard's epic poem, and yes, another 5 great pieces of music! We also introduce you to the newest member of the team, play another Pentacle Drummers track to let you know that the deadline for competition entries is the 20th Novembers Full Show-notes, with all credits, can be found on our main Website at http://celticmythpodshow.com/irishsummary2 Running Order: Intro 0:44 News & Views 1:08 The Old Man & the Fairy Queen by The Bards of Mystic 2:07 The Book of Invasions Pt.3 by Greenwood the Bard 13:26 Elven Home of the Chapel Halls by David Helfand 23:10 Main Characters in the Myth Cycle 28:16 I'll Meet You in Ireland by Kray Van Kirk 39:18 The Book of Invasions Pt.4 by Greenwood the Bard 43:07 Rumblin' Thunder by The Pentacle Drummers 56:22 Competition End-date 58:02 Land of the Ever-Young by Damh the Bard 59:17 We hope you enjoy it! Gary & Ruthie x x x Released: 2nd Oct 2011, 1h 10m It's always great to hear from you! Email garyandruth@celticmythpodshow.com, or leave us a message using Speakpipe The Old Man & the Fairy Queen by the Bards of Mystic William Widmaier is the “Captain” of the Bards of Mystic. William is the founder and the driving force behind the Bards. He is also the writer of all the stories, and that's his voice you hear narrating. Find out more about the Bards of Mystic on Myspace. More details will also be found on our Contributor page. The Book of Invasions, Pts. 3 & 4 by Greenwood the Bard Greenwood the Bard, aka Stephen Cole, has written much wonderful poetry and we're very privileged to bring you his "Book of Invasions" epic saga that re-tells the story of the Invasions of Erin. "After a lifelong love of myth and magic, fairytale and folklore, and brought up in a family where faith and a Godly lifestyle were more important than religion, I was named as a Bard at a Gorsedd in Glastonbury. I am deeply in love with my Creator and His Creation, I have a passion for music, poetry and storytelling, and I live to build bridges between Christian and Pagan." That is such a wonderful quest and so sad that any bridges need to be built. Good luck, Stephen! Check out his Facebook page for more of his wonderful poetry, the poetry pages on paganspace.net and mysticchrist.co.uk where we're waiting for his posts to start appearing.   Elven Home of the Chapel Halls by David Helfand David Helfand composes and performs original and traditional music on Celtic Harp, mandocello, guitar, keyboards and percussion. Many of David's compositions were born through improvisation and drawn on the inspiration found in the power of music from many wondrous cultures. "As I returned from my maiden voyage from the land of Britain full of awe, unspeakable joy and deep reservoirs of inspiration, slowly the music started to speak. From the high craggy cliffs where the ruins of Tintagel castle lay overlooking the dark waters off Cornwall's shore, to the ancient majestic ruins of Glastonbury Abbey and the dark mysteries of the Tower of London, the swirling maze of the city's streets and the magic of the standing stones on Salisbury Plain, I swam deep in the waters of imagination. "Shortly after returning home and embarking on creating "At the Edge of the Cornish Sea", I soon shared with the world, dark grief and immense sadness as the two towers crumbled to the earth creating it's deep grave of shattered lives and dreams. What once seemed important became insignificant against the dark clouds of sorrow." This wonderful track comes from his At the Edge of the Cornish Sea album. You can find out more details about David on his website or on his Contributor Page on our website.   I'll Meet You in Ireland by Kray Van Kirk "I have a different approach now to writing and performing music. I no longer record CDs, as I want to reduce the waste headed to our landfills, and I don't charge money for my songs as a deliberate movement away from the bottom line that seems to govern so much of our daily lives. Every now and then someone asks me how I am ever supposed to make a living as a musician when I don't make CDs and I give my songs away, since most performers make more money on sales than concert fees. I confess: I have no idea! Footsteps in the dark. "So I keep writing my songs, and I sing them when I play a show, and I give them away to anyone who wants them. My graduate work takes me to interesting places on rather short notice sometimes, and I try to plan concerts around that travel, although the short notice can make it difficult. But if I don't make it to where you live, or even if I do, the Downloads page on my website is full of little digital penguins waiting to march their way across the world, leaving no footprints in the snow." About this track, I'll Meet You in Ireland, he says: "One of my favorite poems is Yeats' Song of Wandering Aengus. All of us get old, but inside there is a place that never changes. We may wake up in bodies long gone frail, but the person who looks out is golden-eyed, barefoot in the grass, heady with the light and smells of a Spring that is endless, and generally wondering what the hell happened." Find our more about Kray on his website or check out his Contributor Page to find out a little more about him.   Competition (Chatterbox Show) We then talk about the Competition about the Pentacle Drummers we set in the Chatterbox Show SP24 and set an ending date of the 20th October 2011 for competition entries. Rumblin' Thunder by the Pentacle Drummers "The Pentacle Drummers from Eastbourne, East Sussex were a small group founded in 2001 to perform at the Lammas Festival to accompany the Eastbourne Giants, 'Herne the Hunter' and 'Andred', Saxon Goddess of the Weald. We have since grown from a small group to a troupe in excess of twenty.  The Pentacle Drummers actively support Eastbourne Bonfire Society at bonfires throughout Sussex but are happy to appear on our own or in support of other Bonfire Societies when invited!" You can hear the thundering track Rumblin' Thunder, which is from their album Life in Tatters! You can find out more about The Drummers on their website at The Pentacle Drummers or on their Contributor Page. Land of the Ever-Young by Damh the Bard We can do no better than finish the show with Damh singing us out with his song about the realm of the Celtic Gods, the Land of the Ever-Young, Tir na nOg, from his superb album The Hills They Are Hollow. You can find out more about Damh on his website at You can find out more about Damh on his website at Pagan Music or on our Contributor Page.

Those that have heard SAOR PATROL live never forget the visual image, and the vibrant energy they send out to their audience during a performance. Their vibrant pipe tunes and drum rhythms please, and excite, many a crowd from all walks of life. Still holding onto their unique sound and style they continue to combine old roots and new blood. Once again Saor Patrol has brought to you their very own Celtabilly music. Aftermath (Blar-Nan-Leine 1544) Battle of the Field of Shirts The Battle of Kinloch-Lochy, also known as the Battle of the Shirts or Blar na Léine, was a 1544 battle in Scotland, fought between branches of the Clan Donald, with the involvement of their allies the Clan Cameron against the Clan Fraser, led by Fraser of Lovat, who was aided by members of Clan Grant. The site was on Loch Lochy. [wiki]. See also Clan Cameron's description. The Clanranald Trust Duncarrow All of the members of Saor Patrol are deeply involved in Charity Work, starting the Clanranald Trust. They say: Our ultimate aim is to replicate a medieval Motte and Bailey Fort as an interactive educational visitor attraction (See more at DunCarron). The idea behind the project is to provide an arena in which groups, individuals and school parties can experience the atmosphere of an authentic medieval working community. Once completed the Trust intend to use this development as a centre from which to base their work with the local community and educational institutions, whilst also offering a great forum for companies to entertain clients and employees alike. The Film and TV industries will also find the project useful as a “set”. See their Myspace page and hear more music or visit their homepage, Saor Patrol. You can find out more details about Saor Patrol on their Contributor Page on our website. You can visit the Clan Ranald site or see more details on our Charity page.

You can find Aine on her Myspace page or more details about her on our Contributor Page, including where to get her book.   The Book of Invasions by The Hungry Bentleys Beautifully crafted, elegiac lyrics set to acoustic minor key. Guitar and piano blended like a vintage whisky. And those lyrics; at once verbose and precise. Aural sketches of the persistent low cloud in John’s North Western home town, but Hungry Bentley also make time to notice the single shaft of sunlight breaking through, illuminating the Cemetery Gates. Songs of love, songs of joy, songs of hope to make you smile and dream and weep. This track is a collaboration between John of the Hungry Bentleys and Irish poet Nigel McLoughlin. Nigel McLoughlin is the author of four collections of poetry, the latest of which is Dissonances (bluechrome, 2007). You can find the Hungry Bentleys on Myspace. You can find out more details about Nigel on his Myspace page or about them both on their Contributor Page on our website.   Ravenwolf by Kelly Heckart In this, the second contribution from Celtic Romance author Kelley Heckart, Ravenwolf takes the reader on a journey to an ancient land filled with spiteful goddesses who threaten to tear Ambiorix and Nemu apart. To protect his family from harm, Ambiorix has no choice but to join the Roman Army, once again commanding a cavalry unit, and torn between the soldier inside and being a husband and father. Nemu must confront a past life that is filled with betrayal, loss and revenge. As her past life collides with her present life, she finds herself trapped in the Celtic Underworld by a god who was once obsessed with her when she was known as Becuille. You can visit Kelley Heckart's website or find out much more about her and where to get her books on our Contributor Page.   Song of the Sea by Sharon Knight Alive with soulful longing, passionate hope, and vivid imagery, the music of Sharon Knight is a journey into the otherworldly mists of a timeless land, filled with brave heroes, epic love, and mythical quests. For more than 10 years, the San Francisco Celtic songstress has been performing and recording her unique musical vision as both a solo artist and fronting the world-rock fusion band Pandemonaeon. Her voice is strong and soulful, with a hint of vulnerability, and her striking poetry is set to lush instrumentation reminiscent of Loreena McKennitt’s work. Sharon has also been favorably compared with Fairport Convention, Stevie Nicks, and Tori Amos. Sharon can be found on Myspace, but Sharon's own website, Sharon Knight: Music, Myth & Magic is a beautifully designed tour de force about Sharon and her work. You can find out more about Sharon on her Contributor Page on our website.    Feedback We talk about the inspiration that Dave Jackson of the School of Podcasting has given us as regards making our website more useable by the Visually Impaired on Show 155.

But according to some other traditions, Hefeydd was the first King of Dyfed. Gorsedd Arberth was his burial place and also the entrance to Annwn. Is this the enchanted castle we shall see in the third Branch? A hero called Hefeydd Hir is found in the 6th century epic poem Y Gododdin (composed by a Briton named Aneurin who lived in a land which is now part of Scotland). In the second Branch of the Mabinogion he appears as one of the Seven Knights, King Hefeydd of Dyfed who died in 892 etc. Hefeydd was a common name in Mediaeval Wales.
