The Court of Hefeydd Hen (or Hyfaidd Hen) is of unknown location, but, according to the Mabinogion, certainly not in Dyfed.
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.
We send thanks to Timothy from Finland for his greeting and play a wonderful chant based on the Song of Amergin sent in to us by our long-time friend, Inish.
Wickerman – a song to celebrate our annual English Ale held in the beautiful Adelaide Hills town of Mylor. We honour many of the customs of our English Ancestors; Morris dancing, hobby horses, blackened faced guisers, the fiery torch lit procession with our pageant giants and the burning of the Wickerman. Our ritual celebrates the turning of the year after harvest and honours the old gods, ancestors and spirits of the land as we move into the darker time – the time of the Crone.
