Celtic Myth Podshow

The Celtic Myth Podshow will tell you ancient tales, stories, legends and mythology of Ireland, Scotland, Wales, Cornwall, Brittany and the Isle of Man bringing you the bravery of heroes and heroines, the magnificent pantheon of gods and goddesses and the magic and wonder of druids, faeries and folklore. The stories weave together the rich, beautiful tapestry of mythological history, battles and sagas of the Celts. So sit down, get comfortable and join us for news, chat and a story from Celtic Mythology. Come and join Gary & Ruth and their friends as they tell you the great stories from Celtic legend. The series started with the Book of Invasions from the Irish Mythological Cycle, which is now complete, and we're progressing on to Welsh Mythology with the First Branch of the Mabinogion.

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

Sacred Falls

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.
